Welcome to the United Regions Alliance! Whether your region has just joined, you're a long time member, or you simply are interested in what we do, this dispatch is for you! In the rest of this page, I am going to explain the various facets of our Alliance: our purpose, our government, our activities, and more! If you have any questions that weren't answered by this dispatch, please contact the Alliance President, Suvmia either through telegram or on discord at Suvmia#1607.
The official, constitutional purposes of the Alliance are to:
To vocalize the opinions of smaller regions in the world assembly, and provide assistance for the writing of resolutions.
To develop friendly relations with other organizations and regions for the goal of furthering peace.
To achieve international cooperation with solving problems of any nature, and to promote and encourage respect of human rights without distinction of race, sex, language, or religion.
To be a center for harmonizing nations and regions for those ends.
In addition to these purposes, the alliance also works to generally improve its members, as well as promote a community between our member regions.
In order to become a member of the URA, there are a few simple requirements that must be met. A region must have:
A World Assembly Delegate,
Be able to provide an active Voting Member, and
Uphold the rules and standards of our constitution.
If your region fulfills these simple requirements, then congrats! You are eligible to become the next member of our Alliance. But why should you?
By joining the Alliance, there can be many benefits to you and your region. Let's go through them, shall we?
In a smaller region
As a member of a smaller region (between 5 and 30 nations), here are a few of the benefits you can experience:
Access to a larger pool of nations and other members to socialize with,
The opportunity to participate in huge, Alliance-wide events like our Interregional Roleplay, URA Olympics, and more,
Better access to professional assistance in recruitment and activity for your region from our multitude of medium to large sized members, and
Opportunities to serve in a governing structure for an organization of 3000+ nations.
In a medium region
As a member of a medium region (between 30 and 100 nations), here are some of the benefits you can experience:
Options to expand your region to use the WA as a facet for activity,
Opportunities to discuss with other regional leaders that are experiencing similar issues as you, in a community-like setting,
Have access to regional leaders of large regions, to ask questions and discuss the issues they face, and
Have the opportunity to discuss and implement ideas and legislation on a scale that your region has yet to attain.
In a large region
As a member of a large region (100+), here are some of the benefits you can experience:
Many more options for influence within the WA,
Have opportunities to mentor regional leaders of small or medium sized regions,
Have the option of displaying your region during our annual URACon, and
Bring your region further into the International spotlight.
So what's the catch? With these benefits that we've listed, there has to be some sort of drawback, right? Well, if you count these things to be drawbacks, here they are:
In order to maintain your membership, your regions voting member must vote on at least one in every 4 WA Resolution recommendations.
Your region (and the nations within it) must not be associated with any dangerous or xenophobic ideologies; those sorts of beliefs are not tolerated in the URA.
Your region must notify the government of the URA of any major changes that are relevant to the relationship between your region and the Alliance, such as the replacement of your voting member, or your region performing a merger/refound.
And that's it! Those are the only requirements that we need from your region in order to become a member!
