Attendees 5

The 2022 GUM London Summit was a gathering of micronationalists hosted by the Grand Unified Micronational.

The meeting was chaired by Jonathan I, Emperor of Austenasia, the Chair of the Grand Unified Micronational, and attended by four other micronationalists, three representing GUM member states. The organisation of an in-person summit was one of the foremost pledges of Jonathan I in his electoral campaign for Chair, and he was assisted in organising it both by Vice-Chair Newton von Uberquie and also by James Reginald Frisch (only the latter of whom was able to attend).

The attendees preparing to livestream the Quorum session

The summit began with two presentations, the first by Emperor Adam I on early Adammic history and its legacy, and the second by Larry Martin on the flag of Elmwycke. The main event, though, was an in-person Quorum meeting - only the third in the organisation's history - held in a hybrid-style via livestreaming over Discord. With only four voting delegates present in person, a group voice call was held in the GUM Discord server so that online delegations could also participate; in total, eight full members and one provisional member attended. Votes were placed in the ordinary online channel as usual so as to enable those not present to have their say. Unlike the two previous in-person Quorums, which had dealt with primarily symbolic issues, this Quorum served a practical function and accepted the Empire of Imvrassia and the Caelum Guild as a full member state and an observer state respectively.

Following the end of the Quorum, the attendees departed to a nearby pub for food and drinks.
