The office of Herald is a large one, and covers a wide range of responsibilities ranging from registry of heraldry to announcing court business. As such, the Trillium Herald has a great many deputies. The group Herald of a given branch is often focused on the heraldry side of the position, while other members of The College of Heralds may step in as a voice heralds at events.
Each branch has the office of an official herald who is automatically a member of the College of Heralds. A group herald is a reporting officer, whose reports are due quarterly. As an officer, the Herald must be a paid member.
An alternate title, normally used in smaller groups such as Cantons is Pursuivant.
Generally speaking, it is a good idea to have different people “crying the event” and serving as “court herald” owing to the limits of the human voice.
