The Grand Unified Micronational between March 2014 and June 2015 included three positions with the title of Secretary amongst its staff.

After the dissolution of the Security Council and Advancement Council in 2013 and 2014 respectively, three secretarial positions were established by Quorum on 13 March 2014. The Secretary for Security and Community Affairs was to continue the work of the Security Council, whereas the Secretary for Culture and Education and the Secretary for Science and Research were to continue the work of the Advancement Council. These three positions were abolished in June 2015 upon the organisation transitioning into a formal discussion group, and were not re-established upon its return to organisation status the following year.

A further now-defunct secretariat was the Secretariat for Conflict Resolution and Intermicronational Law, or SCRIL. This was a pet project of the Mcarthian delegate which was dissolved mere weeks after that nation's exit from the GUM.

Considered a successor to the Security Council, the role of the Secretary for Security and Community Affairs was to ensure peace is maintained both within the GUM and in the micronational community at large. Founded in March 2014, it was abolished upon the organisation entering into dormancy in 2015, and has not been re-established.

Secretariat for Conflict Resolution and Intermicronational Law (SCRIL)

The Secretariat for Conflict Resolution and Intermicronational Law (SCRIL) was jointly responsible for the provision of mediation services, and developing intermicronational law. Headed by a Secretary appointed by Quorum, SCRIL was established on 14 January 2017 but dissolved on 26 November later that year, with its duties re-allotted to the Supreme Court.

The two Secretaries for Conflict Resolution and Intermicronational Law were:

  • 14 January 2017 - 2 April 2017: Kit McCarthy of Mcarthia
  • 8 April 2017 - 26 November 2017: Patrick Renwick of Paravia
