Thanks to BSF and GTA for catching this.
Just to reiterate. Not your fault though.

Rhine Ruhr was the best recruiter for the month of August nearly doubling the amount of points earned. Gun-toting Animals still holds the top spot in the overall rankings. Red Croatia joined the Recruiting staff towards the end of the month and current efforts will be combined with next month's totals.

The election process which began in the latter days of June concluded on the sixteenth of July bringing about the Fourteenth Commission of the European Union. Peter Montfort of Angleter was elected Premier Commissioner with Blair von Schroeder (Red Croatia), Colleen Bennet (Rhine Ruhr), Marie Rivas (Northern Caesarea), and Karolinasz Jaedala also making it onto the Commission.
Premier Montfort, like all Premier Commissioners, has been charged with filling out the rest of the Commission Offices with those elected by the region. Blair von Schroeder of Red Croatia is the new Internal Affairs Commissioner. Colleen Bennet of Rhine Ruhr was placed in the Office of Foreign Affairs. The Office of Defense & Peacekeeping will be filled by Karolinasz Jaedala of Os Corelia. The Commission is rounded out by Marie Rivas in the Economics Commission Office.
These elections have been celebrated as a major victory for the still young Union of European Conservatives (UEC) which won two of the Commission spots which include Premier Commissioner Montfort and Commissioner von Schroeder. The UEC managed to get two-thirds of their candidates onto the Commission boasting by far the largest voting base. The European Classic Liberals (ECL) relied on bipartisan support to get its one candidate, Colleen Bennet, elected to the Commission. Both Jaedala and Rivas relied on the left to see to it that they were elected to the Commission. Rivas has long been the leader of the Party of European Socialists and Democrats (S&D) and Jaedala was a solid candidate from the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for a Green Europe (ALDGE).
Foreign Affairs Commissioner Bennet has already begun working in her new office. Bennet is currently overhauling the region?s recruiting system while trying to rally interest in recruiting. The region?s population has increased by 25 since the revamping began to take place.
Defense Commissioner Jaedala and Internal Affairs Commissioner von Schroeder have teamed up to begin discussion on possibly improving the security of the region?s Capital in Europolis. They have created and distributed a survey titled Europolis Security Review to the Council?s delegates. Pending the responses to the survey, the Commissioners plan to renovate the security measures at the region?s institutional buildings.Court News

We would like to congratulate Randomain and Ater Nox for winning elections for their respective seats in the 10,000 Islands? Council of 9.
We would like to wish Matilda luck as she leaves Canada?s Internal Affairs Office in exchange for External Affairs.
European Union whishes luck to all of the candidates in the current House of Commons Elections going on in The British Isles. We also hope that the next Prime Minister will be able to overcome the inactivity that has plagued the region recently.That's all for now, see you next month!
It's great that you have made a thread dedicated to explaining the purpose of recruiting. I hope that this shows the importance of this region's growth to both our newer, and our older members, and inspires them to recruit. Let's just hope that we don't bump into some "bad apples" along the way. And me? Meh, I'll just leave recruiting to those that are capable of it. Today I've been trough hell.
EDIT: People change.
I added a section about the Court and updated the Commission section: I replaced the extracts of Franks' interview about individual Commissioners with one about the Commission in general, included a link to the debate and also a section about the cluster munition. In other news I added something about the referendum in Davishire. The marriage recognition act was covered in the May Update and I didn't include the mafia suggestion as I thought it would be a little strange, since it's OOC and the rest of the update IC.
Maybe the next FA Commissioner should find a solution for this
Thank you for your input, and if you have no other remarks, I'll post the update tomorrow!
_"Hello everyone, thank you all for coming. This press conference will be rather short, as it will deal with only one issue: the football competition with the British Isles. The competition will be called 'the FIFA World Club Cup' and will be composed of two legs. The first leg will take place in the British Isles, more specifically in the Queen Georgiana Stadium on Saturday, May 11th. The second leg will take place in the European Union on Saturday, May 18th. The exact stadium still needs to be determined. The European Team will be called 'All Starz', the team of the British Isles will be Gunners FC. On the screen behind me, you can see the formal invitation by the British Isles, as well as the team kit. _
BIFA hereby formally invites UEFA to the Queen Georgiana Stadium on Saturday 11th May to participate in the first leg of the FIFA World Club Cup.
Gunners FC (Reigning BIFA Premier League Champions) will represent the BI.
They will play in their home kit (on the left)

The European team will be sponsored by Puma, but we also need another sponsor. All companies who are interested in having their name on the shirts of the European football players, should contact me as soon as possible - and soon would be indeed very soon. The best and most original offer will be accepted. I most likely will get back to you as soon as the final details have been worked out, such as the EU team kit, the EU stadium and the EU sponsors. In the meantime, I warmly invite you all to come and watch the football game between our two regions, I don't think it is necessary to explain this is a unique event!
Thank you all for your remarks! I have corrected the errors mentioned and also some others, and I included a birthday message for 10000 Islands. If there are no further remarks, I will post it this evening.
