Republic Legion and Reformation of the Collegium Militarium

Postby Quintus Vergilius Crassus » Thu Aug 03, 2017 2:56 pm

Greetings.

The situation with the military collegium is not permissible. The state in which this collegium is located is outrageous. Attempts by the government with the help of laws and interference in the affairs of the collegiums only exacerbated the deplorable situation. We watched this for a long time, staying aside.

The Leg. XI C.P.F. is the only reenactment union in the Roman Republic, in fact, if we do not take into account the loners, then we are the reenactment community of the whole Roman Republic. Unlike the military collegium, which has been active for less than a year, our community has already celebrated its tenth anniversary. We have a rich knowledge base and specialists. Yes, there is a language barrier, great distances and the fact that we are not Internet-oriented. But this does not allow the responsible persons to ignore our existence, not to listen to our opinion or the opinion of our representatives, or to interfere in any way in the affairs of reenactment with people who do not understand this.

Since we, the Leg. XI C.P.F., are the military collegium of the Roman Republic, as the only organized community of historical reenactment, we declare the following:

1. We create the collegium "Leg. XI C.P.F."
2. Discussion of this panel will be held in this section of the forum. The discussion is open to all who will take an active part in the 11th legion, that is, who are studying military history or historical reconstruction of Rome (not necessarily military oriented).
3. Leg. XI C.P.F., If successful, being the only active community, we will achieve recognition of the legion as the official historical community of the Roman Republic, that is, we will replace the military collegium.
4. Being the only active community, we will achieve recognition of the Leg. XI C.P.F. as the official Republic Legion.
5. The Leg. XI C.P.F. will be created with the maximum historical certainty, which is possible, given the circumstances. As in the time of the ancient Rome, officers and of the Legion, will be engaged in the management of our province. In turn, some magistracy of our province can be occupied only by those who served or serve in the legion. This will be an unprecedented step, however, for the sake of historical certainty, we are ready to do this, and to provide people from America or Korea etc, to take part in the governance of our province, as it was in ancient Rome.
6. We are creating not just a legion or a military collegium, we are creating a coordination center, the structure of which has not existed before. We will try to use the Internet to attract under our banners single people or groups of people around the world to create from them a single whole, a united family that will be represented by representatives on the ground.

All questions, suggestions, etc., you can write in this thread.

The draft of the charter of the collegium has already been discussed by the representatives of our reenactment community. Censor Severus promised to publish it the other day, after making our corrections there. So we can discuss it here soon.

Salve amice,

My friend, since you made such a fiery speech, then I have nothing else to do but hurry up with the amendment of the ByLaws. I will try to do everything in the course of the day, so as not to lose time and start the discussion on the merits.

Дружище, раз уж ты выступил с такой пламенной речью, то мне не остаётся ничего другого, как поторопиться с корректировкой устава. Я постараюсь сделать все в течении дня, что бы не терять времени и приступить к обсуждению по существу.

Слава Одиннадцатому! (=

This is a great initiative! For me the Bylaws are very good. The only thing I'd add is a court of appeal for members that were expelled. Remember that the Bylaws of the RR say there should always be some form in which a person can appeal a sentancing, for juridicial security. :)

This question has already been asked, as we discussed this section. The fact is that, as a general rule, a person, as a citizen of the Roman Republic, can turn to the office of the Praetor. Therefore, we did not specifically express this provision in a separate paragraph of the Bylaws. Nevertheless, judging by your question, I think that such a provision should be made for general visibility.

Thank you for the kind words! As you know, we went for a very long time! (=

Моё предложение такое. В раннем варианте Устава было написано, что Север, как организатор всей этой группы, пожизненно получает должность зам. командира легиона. Я думаю, что эту строчку нужно вернуть. Наш клуб и так прилично "подставляется" под создание этой группы, так что если мы, как клуб, будет работать на это группу, то мы должны иметь какие-то гарантии, что кто-то из останется у руля и сможет защищать интересы клуба. Север для этого самый достойный.

I prupose make Titus Flavius Severus second officer position for life and make this article not changeble.

В твоих словах есть толк. Я включу этот пункт в устав, если большинство не будет против.

In your words there is a sense. I will include this item in the charter, if the majority does not object.
