Vice President Sir Rem De Lavan

Current Realm: Rath
Unit: Brotherhood of the Falcon
Knighted on/by: Sir Catgen: July 2016
Why you wanted to become an officer?: I find myself wanting to be a service to the Belegarth community. Belegarth has done so much for me as an individual that I want to give back in productive and meaningful ways. I would like to take the next step from local leadership to national community leadership. I am also hoping to get a broader understanding of Belegarth as a whole to better differentiate the specific regional mentalities. By creating a better understanding, I can help bridge the gaps that exist within our community.
What do you do as an officer?:
- I would like to create an addition to our national recognitions that focuses more on the new fighters, the quiet vets and the belegrim that continuously improve their local surroundings. These belegrim make the bulk of our sport and help keep member retention up, interest from passerby’s continuous and realm practice a regular occurrence. I posted a mock up of this proposal in the Bele Realm Leaders and Recruiters FB page. If you would like to read my full proposal, let me know and I will post it here.
- I would like to support Sir Nenharma in creating a central YouTube platform for our community. I think most of us can agree that the TUSSLES videos are inspirational and potentially a good tool for marketing ourselves to interested individuals. If we were able to centralize all our Belegarth related video media to a central location, it could help generate interest and spread information in a more efficient manner.
- I would like to promote an extension of Belegarth culture by advertising the newer guilds, The Seneschals and the Artificers guilds. I believe our sport exceeds in fighting culture, but has room to improve in non-fighting culture. These two guilds are starting to gain traction, but need a national platform to truly flourish. Our community has a large collection of artisans and craftsmen that could benefit from the Artificers guild. We can create better heralds, weapon checkers and event coordinators through the Seneschal guild
