P. Sextius Laevus L. Livio Senecæ magister Horatiae Adamanti magistrae omnibusque S.P.D.

Presented here are my additions to the statuta for discussion. I apologize for the unformatted appearance. I was unable to insert it with the indentations. However it is attached as a pdf.

STATVTA COLLEGII LATINI

I. By these statutes the Latin College is hereby established and governed as a cultural collegium of the Res Publica Romana for the following purposes:
a. To promote everywhere the use of the Latin language, propagate its literature, compose new works, and advance education and academic research of the same;
b. To supply, or assist in, Latin translations on behalf of the Res Publica;
c. To advocate for the official status of the Latin language within the Res Publica, and govern its use therein.
i. Issue ‘Notitia Conrecta’ for incorrect Latin usage in Official postings and documents. (This would need a Magisterial Edict to enforce compliance outside of the Collegium.)
ii. Issue ‘Notitia Monita’ for incorrect Latin usage in unofficial postings. This would not require the offender to comply, but would not allow the post to lead others astray.
iii. Issue ‘Notitia Sub Rosa’ for incorrect Latin usage to privately correct the author and allow them to correct their posting/document without public notice. “Secreto admone amicos, palam lauda.” Publius Syrus
d. Establish designations of levels of accomplishment in Latin.
i. Grammatici
(1) Certificavit in Mundum: Certified to teach Latin as recognized in the academic world.
(2) Diploma in Mundum (cum annis): Successful completion of Latin Course(s) as recognized in the academic world or by those Certificavit in Mundum.
ii. Discipuli & Discipulae
(1) Those who can post in Latin.
(2) Those who can read Latin posts in Latin.
(3) New Latin student.

II. Membership in the Latin College is open to all citizens of the Res Publica Romana.
a. Those who are both Roman citizens optimo iure, and who, through credentials or evaluation, are able to demonstrate a mastery of the Latin language as designated above as Grammatici or Discipuli / Discipulae and are active members (designated by at least two posts semi-monthly) in good standing (designated by their posts relevence to the goals of this collegium and to their accomplishment level), are granted suffrage.
b. Such mastery is to be judged by presentation of academic documents and/or by the existing Grammatici.
c. The main collegium forum may be viewed by Citizens, but only members may post.
d. A private sub-forum shall exist for the Moderators and Grammatici to deliberate Notitiae or certification.
e. A private student sub-forum shall exist for students and teacher to share their developing expertice.
III. Governance
a. The Moderators shall exercise executive authority within the College corporately.
b. Active Collegium members shall exercise legislative authority within the College corporately. Legislation shall be confirmed by the members with suffrage.
c. Two Moderators and Scriba are to be each elected by a plurality for a term of one year, beginning October 15. The Moderators shall serve as first among equals, speaking on behalf of the College, presiding over its deliberations, and deciding tied votes. The Scriba is to assist him in his duties, exercise his functions in his absence, and maintain the records of the College.

i. Should either of these offices ever fall vacant, the remaining officer is to convoke the College and preside over an election to fill the vacancy as soon as possible (Statute IV.a notwithstanding), deciding any tied vote as necessary.
ii. Should both offices fall vacant simultaneously, the Grammaticus with the lowest citizen identification number is authorized to organize an election, per Statute III.c.i.
iii. Should the College lack both officers and Grammatici, then control of the College is surrendered to the Curule Aedilitas until the situation is resolved.
IV. Comitia Collegia
a. Either Moderator may convoke the College.
b. Any Grammaticus may convoke the College with the consent of the Moderator. Such a convocation must be announced at least seven days prior.
c. Any member in good standing may bring an item of business before a convocation.
d. Any resolution of the College, including the disbursement of funds, except as provided elsewhere in these statutes, requires a simple majority in order to stand.
V. Moderation
a. Disputes between members shall be settled privately, or by a simple majority, with the Moderator interceding as necessary.
b. As a result of a heinous violation of the purposes or legislation of the College, or the mos maiorum, an offending member may be expelled by an extraordinary majority (viz., more than three quarters of the ballots cast).
c. Any such expulsion may be appealed by the one expelled to the Curule Aedilitas, or, if they are of the plebeian order, to the Plebeian Aedilitas if they prefer.
VI. An absolute extraordinary majority (viz., more than three quarters of all voting members) may dissolve the College. Should the College be so dissolved, its funds are to be surrendered to the Aerarium Populi Romani.
VII. An extraordinary majority can amend these statutes (viz., more than three quarters of the ballots cast).

As an outsider, I think the distinction betwewn Discipuli and Grammatici very useful. Even if they dont have privilages (which I think they should have since for me the CL should reward knowledge with more responsibility and influence, but that's just me...) I think it still helps a lot for us to identify who is more knowledgable so we can direct our inquaries better. It also is a form of celebrating knowledge and expertise.

P. Sextius Laevus L. Livio Senecae et Omnibus S.P.D.

I have three concerns, sufferage, budget, balanced oversight, that I would add to the revised bylaws.

1. We currently have 16 members, 3/4 of which (12) it would take to amend the bylaws.

I would not expect that many of them even to participate let alone to to carry any proposal. They have no investment in the Collegium, at best some may follow the posts, only a few have posted beyond an initial inquiry.

I don't think Denarii dues would work until most of the Citizens become gainfully employed. But we can require activity in the Collegium as a means of investing.

In addition to the Citizen Optimo Iure status, specifying a minimum posting number within a given time period to be eligible to vote, although an administrative burden, would be a measure of active interest in what the Collegium is doing and would prevent dead-wood from dead-locking the governance.

2. We need to address the control of the Collegii Denarii. Either by a vote approved budget or more likely a vote approved individual spending bill or contract.

3. We need to balance the empowerment of the two leaders with the oversight of the active members, checks without micro-managing. An administration's plan of action and budget, approved by vote, would then free the leadership to carry it out.

Two important questions:

Are there provisions for in the case when both Magistri have resigned or are otherwise unattending?

Are there provisions for in case any element of the bylaws conflict with the laws of the RR? (A standard procedure on how to fix that)
