Pr. Non. Mart. – New Bylaws unify Roman governance within a Non-Profit Organization Today during the first session of the Comitia Curiata, the bylaws of the Roman Republic were passed. This document enables responsible Roman governance within a modern non-profit corporation. This required some modern concessions; however, the document enables a Roman republican style of administration. This document also unifies many individuals with various interests and brings them together in an inclusive community of modern Romans. The Comitia Curiata continues to meet and is now discussing the procedures required to hold the first modern elections of the Res Publica.
III Id. Mart. – Successful First Comitia Curiata Meeting Closes The Comitia Curiata meeting which closed today has placed the Roman Republic on solid footings. The resolutions passed at this meeting allows others to provide assistance towards the growth of the Roman Republic. This meeting also provided the first step towards the creation of an independent Collegium Pontificum in partnership with the Roman Republic. During the meeting which ended today nearly, 100 citizens have been welcomed to the Res Publica. This stands as a testament to what is possible as nation and community when dedicated support is provided, and thoughtful tending to the Pax Deorum occurs.
