History of the Council[edit]

The Council was formed by the Constitution of ADSIC. Originally slated to be a two house (bicameral) legislature, consisting of a House (Dail) and a Senate (Seanad). However, after much moderation, the council became the compromise solution.

The First Council will take office on September 17, 2007, consisting of ten members.

Official Name and Stylization of the Council[edit]

The official name for the Council is the Unicameral Council of ADSIC, or UC-ADSIC.

A Member of the Council is called a Unicameral Council Member, or UCM. The two letter state postcode abbreviation follows, so a UCM from California would be UCM-CA.

Informal titles may be Councilman, Councilwoman, Councilor, or Council Member.
