Committee Assignments

COMMITTEES - TOPICS - COUNTRIES

Please note that there is an Open Agenda in the Security Councils. This Open Agenda means that these committees may discuss any topic that is within their purview, not merely those topics that will be discussed in our Presidents' Letters. All other committees are limited to discussing the topics assigned to them. However, any and all committees are subject to the possibility of being asked to discuss an emerging international crisis or being given an emergency simulation.

Delegate Press Corps

Delegates will act as Journalists for the conference and should have experience in print journalism. They will write articles for distribution in a newsletter based on current proceedings in the various committees. Delegates will have a set amount of time to research assignments working with equal deadlines. Delegates will be evaluated on writing style, accuracy and professional ethics.

Delegate A-Team

Delegates represent absent nations in the various councils at the request of those councils to answer specific questions about that nation’s position on agenda topics or in emergency simulations. Upon receipt of a request for an A-Team representative, delegates must be prepared to take on the role of any requested nation, NGO, or other representative of any internationally recognized organization within a very short period of time.
