Kingdom Althing Minutes 1-9-2022
Kingdom Althing opened by King Redbeard at 7:05 via Kingdom Discord.
Uther brings up a new corpora proposal. The Senator proposal. The intent is to allow a Kingdom Monarch to select an individual to serve as a senator to the InterKingdom Circle of Monarchs during their reign. The Senator would carry out all responsibilities and decisions concerning the Interkingdom Circle of Monarchs. Proposal:
The Kingdom Monarch serves as Golden Plains voice in the National Circle of Monarchs
The Kingdom Monarch casts votes for Golden Plains in the National Circle of Monarchs.
The Kingdom Monarch interacts and collaborate with the other delegates in the National Circle of Monarchs to create and amend documentation on the national scale.
The Kingdom Monarch is required to post any upcoming votes, Amtgard International announcements, job postings, etc to the Kingdom of the Golden Plains Facebook group.
The Kingdom Monarch is encouraged to poll the Kingdom for any subject matter found relevant to their duties.
The Kingdom Monarch may choose to appoint a Senator to serve on the National Circle of Monarchs during their reign.
If a Senator is appointed they will fulfill the following Kingdom Monarch Obligations of section 3.2.1 of the Corpora. Items 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11.
Any Kingdom Citizen 21 years or older may serve as Senator. To be chosen a Citizen must be dues-paid, as well as Reeve and Corpora certified. They must remain dues-paid as well as Reeve and Corpora certified while serving as Senator. Further they cannot hold any other in-game positions while serving as Senator.
If there is a need to remove a senator, a petition, signed by 20% of the dues-paid populace must be presented to the Prime Minister. The Kingdom Althing can then remove the Senator with a 66% vote for removal. The Kingdom Monarch also retains the right to dismiss the Senator who serves at their pleasure.
The floor is opened for questions and comments on the proposal. King Red Beard.
King Red Beard brings up for the need for an Election Judge for this round of Kingdom elections. This person would normally help to count physical ballots and ensure fair and accurate results. With online voting in place, this is not needed. By corpora someone still has to serve.
