Dacia provincial report MMDCCLXII
Provincia Dacia Nova Roma report to the Senate.
T. Iulius Sabinus: Senatoribus Patribus Mátribusque Conscriptís, salutem plurimam dicit:
I consider this year as a year of stagnation when it comes about events and projects. However the citizens' number increased and some of them active participated in the advisory work for other organizations dedicated to Roman culture, civilization and reenactment.
Dacia has 22 citizens and one probationary citizen. This year, the citizens' number increased with two new members, both active and assidui. One of them, T. Cassius Longinus, was appointed as provincial scribe and he has contribution editing the Nova Roma wiki, especially Roman Religion articles, in Romanian and Hungarian.
Citizens from Dacia were not able to participate this year to the European Roman Festival. That was happened because the international economical crisis which in negative way affected the usual standard of life.
It is possible as in 2010, to obtain a few hours of emission at one of the on line Romanian TV station. That is good opportunity to present to the internet large audience, dates about Nova Roma and Nova Roma Dacia, our goals and activities.
- Anticipated revenue from the province:
In the interval 2005 - 2008, 90% of Dacia citizens were active and assidui. In 2009 we faced a decrease of the assidui number with 60%. 2010 was announced as difficult year. I will follow a policy based of the realities of the time will come.
- Description of the fundraising activities planed:
No fundraising activities are planned for the next year.
- Anticipated expenses within the province:
From the total amount of taxes, a half will remain in province. It will be used to pay the Dacia website domain, hosting and for the internet domain of Temple of Mercurius.
- Description of provincial activities necessiting expenditure:
Nothing is planned at this moment.
- -The website of Provincia Dacia is since 2005 at this address: Dacia Nova Roma.
- -Wiki NR Dacia is at this address: Provincia Dacia
- -Provincia Dacia mailing list is at this address: Dacia NR
- -Dacia magistrates and the editors of Dacia webzine have their own mailing lists:Trium Daciarum and Dacia newsletter; however the Dacia webzine was not developed this year because the lack of editors.
- Provincial magistrates.
It was my intention, how I presented in the last year report, for a change in the Dacia provincial magistrates system based of a more accurate historical model. Until the end of the year the new system will be discussed in the Collegium Trium Daciarum and implemented if approved. For this year I will not distinguish any provincial magistrate.
- Roman religion.
The Temple of Mercurius works well and it has 327 unique visitors. The Temple can be found at this address.
As Nova Roma pontifex and sacerdos Mercurii I will continue active and in practical way with the Roman Religion development in my area following the Collegium Pontificum decisions.
This year can be characterized as a year of stagnation. The interest level for activities and projects is low but it has some objective reasons. For 2010 my prognosis is the same as for this year.
- I will continue as governor of Dacia.
