The united Kingdoms of Amtgard, speaking with the voice and leadership of the Circle of Monarchs, believing that the growth of Amtgard is advanced through the responsible government of the various kingdoms, and seeking to encourage that growth with communication, high standards, and mindfulness of the future unity of Amtgard, do hereby endorse and ratify these guidelines regarding the sponsorship rights of kingdoms.
I. Each kingdom shall have the right to sponsor any contracted chapter that is within the same state and within 75 miles of their kingdom seat. This region shall be considered the kingdom's sovereign lands.
II. Each kingdom shall have the right to sponsor any contracted chapter outside their sovereign lands provided that the chapter is not close to another kingdom.
III. A chapter is considered to be close to the kingdom that has the nearest kingdom seat, the kingdom that has the nearest kingdom chapter, and the kingdom with the nearest kingdom seat in the same state as the chapter.
IV. A chapter that is more than 500 miles from the nearest kingdom chapter is considered to be close to no kingdom.
V. If the criteria set forth here result in a chapter being close to multiple kingdoms, any kingdom wishing to sponsor the chapter must obtain permission from those kingdoms.
VI. Contracted chapters sponsored by kingdoms at the time of this agreement retain their sponsorship, but are subject to the terms of this agreement if they seek to change sponsorship.
VII. The Circle of Monarchs shall have authority to hear and resolve all issues related to this agreement.
