Greetings and thank you for interest in NHSMUN 2014, let me be the first to welcome you! My name is Heather Hedges and I am the Chief of External Relations for this year’s conference. This will be my fourth year on NHSMUN staff, having previously served as Under-Secretary-General of the General Assembly Mains committees. I am so thankful to be part of this incredible organization and am thrilled to be spending my final year as the Chief of External Relations.
Outside of NHSMUN, I will be entering my fourth year at Georgetown University in the School of Foreign Service studying International Political Economy and Justice and Peace Studies. I also participate in Model United Nations at Georgetown, staffing both high school and collegiate conferences. In all, this is my eighth year of extensive involvement with Model United Nations. I am eager and excited to contribute my experience as both a delegate and staffer to yet another fantastic conference for all those who attend.
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 CJ Stavrakos (email@example.com) or Chief of External Relations Heather Hedges (firstname.lastname@example.org)
