During this year, the decision was made to disband the position of Master/Mistress of Revels (Continental Europe).

It was later decided that the position of Master/Mistress of Revels (South Pacific) would also be disbanded and this Local Liaison system would be adopted there as well. 2012 also saw the directorship change hands as Sonea Ilandred took over the department.
