The Regents are a team of members that look after the "behind the scenes" responsibilities of GeekZone. They have various duties, such as looking after the money, arranging events or representing GeekZone to the Charity Commission, amongst others.
Regents are not "Boss" or "in charge". They simply help to coordinate and facilitate GeekZone activities when necessary. They are just humans like everyone else!
Why are they called "Regents"?
The Warehouse 13 Regents are a group of normal people who, in the background, look after something very important. There is no hierarchy and everyone has a unique perspective that helps them to solve any problem that they face.
Similarly, our Regents look after GeekZone. Each brings their own experience to help GeekZone in a different way, to ensure that it gets better and brings more geeks together!
Who can be a Regent
Any GeekZone member can become a Regent, as long as they are enthusiastic and eager to help GeekZone get better & better and to connect with more & more geeks.

How it Works
Here's how Regents work within GeekZone - in a Venn diagram. Because everyone loves a good Venn diagram.

The Regent team looks after GeekZone in the following areas
