Complete Change of the Bylaws

For the better organization and rationalization of our Bylaws, Magister Curio and I propose a meeting to discuss the scraping off of the entire Bylaws and their substitution with these proposed Bylaws:

Proposed Bylaws


Anything you wish to add or alter please say. I have refrained from making any additional offices other then the Rectura so as to give the system more flexibility. The Rectura may create new offices (included elected ones) through Decreta as needed. The first Rector would have the 1 year term so as to make it that a new Rector is chosen with regularity yet always at different times from one another, creating a sense of continuation as they are chosen.

Regarding the Magister Legum, it was created so as to permit a private subforum to be created later on (visible by all the Magistrates and the Magistres Legum) so that magistrates may privately consult the Collegium on their law proposals if they so wish (and I hope it becomes custom that they do so)

Salvete Omnes!

My fellow Romans! I see this as an opportunity to streamline and reorganize the Collegium into a more functional group within the Republic. I shall add my points that I think should be taken into consideration.

I would drop the term limits. I would say drop it from three years to one and five years to two. With an option to be voted in for more terms, up to three. That way you don't have one person running the whole show forever. That kind of leads to cronyism, unintentionally but it happens. I would also add that those members who do serve a term of office should be kept on as a council of elders in law or something like that. Like a Consilium Legum who can counsel those who are in office and also distinguish those whom have served and can be looked to for advice.

Valete!

Makes sense to me, although I'd make the exceptional be the One year term and the Two year term be the norm. Also, instead of making a seperate Council, why not we give past Rectores automatically the member-level of Magister Legum? That way they will be destinguished.

So let us see how the Rectura would work election-wise in this suggestion.
Rector A will serve for two years.
Rector B for one.
Next year we elect someone else for the Rector B position. Rector A continues.
Next year we see Rector A go through an election. Rector B continues.
It repeats thus. That way we always have 1 person that is not being elected in a given year, yet we still have yearly elections. That keeps a sense of continuation but also maintains a constant change.

What do you guys think? Can I alter it this way?

I think that sounds good, yes. The proposed changes should benefit the Collegium Legis Romance, I believe
