Chair Application

NY Chairs

Another educational feature of the conference is elevating delegates to serve as volunteer committee staff, replicating the UN system where ambassadors serve as committee chairs. Rest assured, a delegate's service in these positions in no way detracts from his/her delegation's ability to win an overall delegation award. Past Secretariat members note the strong educational value in using topical knowledge to help move forward the committee agenda. Delegates with previous committee experience (in NY or elsewhere), as well as delegates who may be interested in applying for volunteer staff positions in the future are particularly encouraged to apply to become a chairperson for their committee. Use the NMUN•NY Chair Application, linked to in the blue box.

Committee Chair Position

A Chair works with their Director and Assistant Director to assist with procedural and administrative tasks, and helps ensure that their committee operates in a smooth and efficient manner. This position requires a working knowledge of the NMUN Rules of Procedure and a professional presence on the dais. Chair applicants should have prior Model United Nations experience, particularly at NMUN conferences.
