Grand Unified Micronational YouTube Channel

The Chair proposed the GUM YouTube channel, an policy within his manifesto. The Chair argued that the channel would allow a communications path to the public, allowing the organization to produce content on the structure of the organization and how to get into the GUM. The Chair noted that this can also be used for the GUM Guides project. The idea was acclaimed by delegates.

The Chair moved the creation of a YouTube channel to vote.

GUM Development Awards

The Chair motioned for the creation of a commission responsible for GUM Development Awards. Lord Lewis of Zenrax questioned how this would differ from a popularity contest, for which the Chair replied, stating that “[it is] a rewarding endeavour for those that work hardest”. Joseph Kennedy questioned how the proposed commission would achieve the mission, which the Events Secretary, Terri, responded with having a panel of judges to decide the winners. Various delegates were concerned about subjectivity, which Anthony Clark of Abelden replied, stating he would be open in accepting subjectivity if the committee carries out steps to avoid such possibility.

A point of order was called after the Vice-Chair, Matthew of Essexia, accidentally posting two photos in the incorrect Discord channel. The Vice-Chair attempted to joke “that the Supreme Justice should not even have admin permissions to view the audit log”, but the joke was viewed negatively by some delegates.

The Chair moved for the creation of a commission to organize the GUM Development Awards.

Lobby moderators

The Chair moved for the appointment of Archie Birch of Misberia and Cristian Dobrev of Plushunia, citing that the previous moderators, Henry Clements and the late Nicholas Randouler, both left the organization. This was viewed positivity by the Quorum and Anthony Clark questioned if both can be approved at once. The Chair did it separately, but was presented at the same time.
