Greetings and thank you for your interest in NHSMUN 2013! My name is Lizzie Kubo Kirschenbaum and I am proud to say that I have been granted the privilege of serving as this year’s Chief of External Relations. This position means that I am going to be working closely with all of you and provide you with a primary point of contact for your time with NHSMUN. I will be a third year student at the George Washington University majoring in International Affairs with a concentration in International Development. This will be my fourth year with NHSMUN, and my third year on staff. That being said, I have been able to see NHSMUN through nearly every perspective possible, so if you have any questions during your preparation for the conference, feel free to contact me!
Thank you all so much for your interest in our conference. This is truly a unique conference that will shape many of your students’ Model United Nations careers and allow them to grow as students, as delegates, and as people as they work and deliberate with students from all over the world. NHSMUN is not only special for the delegates, but for you as well! One of the aspects of my position is to plan an event-filled and informative week to allow Faculty Advisors a deeper look into many of the topics and procedures that your delegates have steadfastly studied. These events will include possible events like film screenings, workshops on parliamentary procedure or specific special committees/topics, seminars with the keynote and other speakers, and much, much more.
Please check back frequently for updates to the faculty preparation guide and direct all questions to Secretary-General Hannah Olliff (email@example.com) or Chief of External Relations Lizzie Kubo Kirschenbaum (firstname.lastname@example.org)
