The most thorough and organized medium for this summit is to use a method of proposal and passage. That is, I will compound a list of desired reforms and turn out a bill proposal to the AIN Senate, allowing for every topic to be discussed separately and be passed separately. Once that bill matures (when the bill reaches a set number of votes, which will be determined), I will propose the next reform bill.
I have so far created a list of reforms to be organized into separate bills. They are not strictly my ideas, and every single one, I have seen, has been a point of contention by at least one member, either publicly or privately. Insofar as credit goes, all members have expressed desire for a reformation of any part of AIN, so I claim no more credit than merely initiating the summit. All other credit belongs to members of the Alliance of Independent Nations.
This list as presented will be the order in which the reformation bills will churn out. Any edits will be applied to the list directly.
- Reformation of the policy on side, or secondary, nations (No reform)
- Reformation of the application system, including the city-builder picture requirement (Reformed)
- Reformation of the Honorary Member system (On-going)
- Reformation of the function and purpose of the various agencies of the AIN government, including the Executive Committee
- Reformation of the election process
- Reformation of the nature of AIN itself, in terms of roleplaying in particular.
With regards to the final item on the list, I plan there to be a discussion of the purpose of AIN. This will include topics such as whether AIN functions as a political bloc, a forum for diplomatic relations, or anything else. I also intend there to be a discussion on possibly moving to a fictional planet, alternative history scenario, or anything else. The bill will be introduced once there is a consensus on the matter. It is possible the bill will not come to fruition if the members settle on the status quo.
As such, this list is open to any additional topic ideas that are unrelated to the items on the list I have compiled. This summit is, first and foremost, meant to be a union-wide event. I hope that all current members have a say in proposed reforms. In the end, it is we who can change what kind of community we wish to be a part of.
That being said, I am open to all ideas with regards to how to proceed with the summit.
