Session VI 16-17 July 2751
Senate action for 10 July 2751 as posted in the “old Tabularium” This is posted in place of a Tribunes report that has yet to be found. Tiberius Galerius Paulinus, Censor 9 August 2761 A.V.C.
1. A Statement of Policy Regarding Intermicronational Relations
(Proposed by Flavius Vedius Germanicus 7/10/98. No voting deadline. Approved without dissenting votes 7/16/98)
In light of the recent discussion, I would like to propose that the official policy of Nova Roma regarding micro national relations be expressed thus:
"Nova Roma is pleased to open dialogues with all Micronations and private Citizens of Nova Roma are free to deal with citizens of other micronations as they see fit. However, as we have real-world goals, we shall offer official recognition and engage in formal diplomatic relations only with those Micro nations which are serious Sovereignty projects. This standard shall also be applied to participation in intermicronational organizations and treaty conventions."
As we are the policy-making body of the State, I believe it is our place to establish such a statement. It would be posted on the international relations page on our web site.
2. Appointment of Flavia Claudia Juliana as Curatrix Aquila
(Proposed by Flavius Vedius Germanicus 7/17/98. Deadline 7/20/98. Approved without dissenting votes 7/17/98)
Since Flavia Claudia Juliana has volunteered to take over the position of editor of the newsletter, I would like at this time to ask that the Senate officially appoint her as Curatrix Aquila. She has experience producing newsletters, has published many books (both on paganism and in more mainstream genres), and has the drive and energy to really turn The Eagle into something grand.
Part of my doing this is also to establish the precedent of appointing "Curatores"; in the late Republic, such appointments were made to take care of specific projects like the building of roads and aqueducts. I think this is a perfect modern adaptation of the practice.
I ask that the Senate confirm her appointment to this post by the 20th day of this month, as she will need a lot of lead time to take over publication of the August issue.
