Foreign Policy Advisory Board Disbanded
After two and a half months of service, the Foreign Policy Advisory Board was disbanded by Quaestor Cicero of Scadinavian Duchies today, February 11th. The Quaestor is quoted as saying:
Quote from: Quaestor Cicero of Scadinavian Duchies I
"This should in no way be construed as any newfound arrogance on my part in regards to running and implementing the foreign policy of the Senate and its Curia Legationis. I still recognize that to be a successful Quaestor, I will need input, help, and criticism from many. Instead of this committe[e], however, I will seek the advice of venerable Senators when I feel I need it, as I already do."
The Foreign Policy Advisory Board was a Consular initative instituted by Pronconsul Punk of Big D Baby and was first headed by former Quaestor Moldavi of former Senate Nation Greater Moldavi. Additionally, the Pronconsul created the RolePlay Advisory Board and Prefecture Advisory Board, both of which are still active and headed by Praetrix Nebuloso of Nebutopia.
