This policy had been edited into the Guild Charter and the Laws of STC posts.
In this section “departure” covers both voluntary departure and guild removal by an officer or High Council member.
Departure from the guild in any chapter is departure from the guild in all chapters. Once a member has departed any Officers or High Council members that witness the departure must post in the appropriate forum so website access can be restricted accordingly.
STC does not, as a matter of practice, readmit members who quit once a 96-hour cooling off period has passed. If the time limit passes with no word from the resignee on a change of mind, or if it is confirmed by a Lord Preceptor or the Grand Preceptor, then the resignation will be accepted.
If a person who departs the guild wishes to return after the 96 hour cooling off period, the individual must receive the approval of the LP of the chapter from which s/he had departed. Unless the individual was a former HC member the LP has full discretion of re-admittance and the procedures therein to judge the individuals fitness for re-admittance. The LP may petition the HC for a review of an individual's re-admittance; should the LP choose to do so, then the case will be handled as if the individual was a former HC member as outlined in the following paragraph.
If the individual was a former HC member, then the HC must review the individual's case and provide an answer within 72 hours of receiving the petition. The final decision must be agreed upon by a quorum of HC members. If the HC fails to come to a decision within this time period the GP must make a final ruling.
Any former member that is re-admitted to the guild after the 96 hour cooling off period are barred from serving in an officer position of any type for 90 days, regardless of the conditions in which they left. This period shall not be extended unless the individual has been served disciplinary action since re-joining the guild. The Lord Preceptor has the discretion to extend this period based on the severity of the infractions committed.
