Nyguyen had ordered for the Uchiha Clan Hall to be modified for the event. Clan meetings were often traditional and rustic affairs. They was a table set up in front and then everyone faced forward towards that table. The main table usually included the Clan Leader, his spouse, immediate relatives, and the various positions of importance. That simply would not do. A moment this grand would require a grand re-structuring of the Hall. Nyguyen informed the Meeting Host that there'd be a number of changes. The first would be that the meeting would be set up as a series of semi-concentric rows not dissimilar to the United States Congress . Seats would be assigned based on rank, age, experience, and relative important to the village and clan. Those with more seniority sat closer to the front and those with less in the back or in the rafters.
The seat of honor was a podium and chair erected in the mid center of the room . Behind this seat of honor, were two other seats directly behind the lead podium. Nyguyen would occupy the left and Juniper the right. The Lead Parliamentarian occupied a booth off to the side. He would select who would get to speak and would deal with all manner of Parliamentary inquiries. Normally, the meetings were held at the Clan Leader's pleasure and in accordance with their personal rules. Nyguyen was not going to be so bold as to claim such a position and thus the meeting would be ran under the archaic but still well known (to historians) Familial Rules of Scarlet Procedure. Nyguyen would introduce Satomi Uchiha and the man would take the center-stage. At that point, the meeting would largely be under his control albeit with minor guardrails imposed by the Lead Parliamentarian. Until Satomi was formally in control of the Clan, Nyguyen believed it was best that the meeting be conducted this way.
Nyguyen expected the Clan's "Leader" to be absent from this meeting. Akihiro was off doing god knows what as usual. The Intelligence Officer was leagues beyond most in the clan, it was speculated that he might be stronger than even Satomi himself. He had taken control of most of the clan's affairs but he wasn't exactly a PR friendly Clan Leader. Eventually, he had dropped off the face of the Earth. Others had stepped in to fill his shoes but it was always temporary. Akari Uchiha had provided a source of stable leadership for several months but eventually she too grew weary of the job. Konoha was soon to be without a Kage and its most powerful Clan without a leader.
The items that were under discussion would be projected onto the large backwall:
1. Position of Clan Leader
2. Position of Hokage
3. Relationship with the Ōtsutsuki
4. Retaliation against the Society for the kidnapping of Rin Uchiha, Assault on Konoha/Clan Compound
5. Renovations to the Clan Compound.
Nyguyen sat back in his chair and waited for his Clan Mates to file in. Satomi was likely waiting in the backroom. He would announce the man's Resurrection soon enough but for now it was better for the Clan to be all present and accounted for. The Uchiha would have probably heard rumblings that Satomi was back but no formal statement by the council had been made. Once the Hall had been filled and all the seats taken, Nyguyen would stand up.
"The Chair recognizes Nyguyen Uchiha, son of Katahshi Uchiha"
"I do thank the Chair" Nyguyen said as customary of under the Familial Rules of Scarlet Procedure. "Brothers and sisters!" He spoke in a loud and commanding tone. Nyguyen had given lectures before hundreds of students and so he wasn't afraid of the spotlight. He was however acutely aware of the sound of his daughters giggling in the rafters at him. They were soon shushed and he cleared his throat as he did his best to focus on anyone but them. "I have gathered you all here for a historic meeting! These are the times that try men's souls as the great Kabalasa Uchiha once said...." Nyguyen saw Juniper tapping her watch from the corner of his eye and he stopped himself before he got started. "......what he said was unimportant, or rather it is important, but not as important as what we are about to do today. Today, we tackle several important agenda items that will determine the future of this Clan. As many of you know, the world stands on the brink of war. Bold and decisivie leadership is required at all levels of governance, from the Clan to the Office of the Hokage. There is much to discuss and little time, as many of you might have already heard, I do have a big bit of news to announce. We will be welcoming one of our own home today....I think many of you know who I am talking about......while I am eager to welcome him so that he may lead us in discussion on several key issues, I wanted to give each of you the opportunity to speak on any matter that you choose. The floor is open to adding items of discussion onto the agenda or airing grievance, comments, and concerns. With that I yield the floor!"
Nyguyen sat back down and nodded to the Lead Parliamentarian. All of the Uchiha who had entered would be given a chance to speak if they so desired. If not, then the meeting could progress. Once formal Clan business was under discussion, only certain qualified speakers would be able to speak or vote. For now, Nyguyen was giving the lesser clan members an open forum to talk. Once the big ticket items came under discussion, the only people talking would be those Uchiha of high standing.
