Our Story Begins...
In the beginning, the Arthurian Order of Avalon (AOA), served as the central focus for the pageantry for the University of Oklahoma Medieval Fair. An offshoot of the Society for Creative Anachronism, the AOA began as a small group of actors and students who were interested in presenting the romantic adventures of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. They named the group the Order of Avalon and were ruled by their founders: King Kevin and Queen Dara Mathey.
The Arthurian Order of Avalon has evolved and changed much over the years but our vision has remained the same: to be an organization where people of all ages can find a haven of friendship and virtue. We also hope that during each member's time in our group they learn to be upright and honorable people unafraid to stand up for what they believe is right, good, and true. Wherever their path of life may take them.
The Arthurian Order of Avalon, Inc. is a not-for-profit charitable organization, established under Oklahoma Law, and no member of the organization gathers financial gain or profit from their membership. The AOA has a Board of Directors that oversees and guides the organization through normal business dealing.
The King and Queen of the AOA act as directors and leaders of the organization, serving as the President and Vice-President of the Board of Directors- with the longer tenured member of The Crown serving as President. They also oversee the Kingdom's guilds, Knighthoodm and Solar programs. While it seems they are independent of one another, they work in cooperation for the betterment of the AOA. They are assisted by many people: most notably, the Seneschel (Treasurer) and the Registrar (Secretary).
The Board of Directors consists of 9 people: The King and Queen, The
Seneschel, Registrar, a Knight's Regent, a Lady's Regent, and three members elected by the populous to serve as representatives.
