A Brief Interview With The WA Secretary
The intrepid staffer Molly Muse has decided that she will interview Sargon Reman for this inaugural edition of WA Report- in hope of a raise!
Molly Muse: So, Mr. Secretary this is a brand new position and you have your work cut out for you. Tell us a little about the position.
Sargon Reman: Thank you for your inquiry Molly. The Secretariat was formed to assist with WA related activities for 10KI. Orginally I proposed the new position as a form of Vice Delegacy, but after public feedback I and the Co9 reformed the idea in an effort to compromise with the general goal of creating an office to assist with the WA but without the confusion found in the idea of a Vice Delegate.
Molly Muse: So aside from the obvious reasons the position was created for, what are your goals during your tenure?
Sargon Reman: The Secretariat will be very busy both now and in the future. I wish to establish the custom that the WA Secretary will publish a monthly report like Ministries do. While we are not a Ministry in the legal sense I think that it is entirely appropriate that we organize our operations to be like one. We will be running important programs just like a Ministry would.
I plan on launching a WA engagement program in January. The program will be focused on WA retention inside 10KI. Its mission will be to increase our Delegates endorsement count and encourage WA nations to endotart and participate in WA authorship/debate. Just recently the Secretariat unveiled a badge reward system which will award WA nations in 10KI that fulfill certain criteria every month. These awards will be published in a monthly Dispatch to recognize nations for their achievements.
Also the Secretariat will be launching a WA tracking program call WAD TraKr. The program will serve as a permanent record for how every Delegate votes and will include NS forum and 10KI forum discussion references. The TraKr may eventually evolve to include snippets of analysis from well known WA participants.
Additionally, this next month the Secretariat will be hiring educators for our WA education initiative. This will not be a replay of the University. The initiative will form Security Council and General Assembly courses that will become accessible to the public for learning and will include a quiz system and incentives for drafting WA resolutions aside from those available from Taco Island Charities.
I have a couple of other ideas I'm brainstorming but that's all for now.
Molly Muse: Wow. You really knitted quite a kite over there Mr. Reman. What about the education initiative? What makes it so different from the University dynamic?
Sargon Reman: Its simple. The educational aspect will only be maybe 2 or 3 courses at the most that will only need to be updated every so often. It will be strictly limited to WA education which is far more narrow in scope compared to the University. People who look at the WA courses will be more likely to have a genuine interest in the material than some RL related topic matter found inside the University when it existed. Members are more interested in the mechanics of NS than rehashing so many RL related topics. Members are in NS to have fun and get away from RL toils.
Molly Muse: Thank you so much for answering my questions Mr. Reman!
