Applications for Chairs are now open

Honorable Delegates,
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

We currently are looking for young and inspired individuals willing to assume the responsibility of chairing one of five committees within the upcoming conference.

An ideal chairperson is characterized by sensitivity for the themes and aspirations of his or her committee, with good knowledge of procedural rules and diplomatic conduct, as well as the social skills required to engage delegates in lively debate. Since all of our sessions are held in English, a very good command of the language is essential. Previous chairing experience is very much appreciated.

The following Councils and Committees are planed for this years conference:

  • United Nations Security Council
  • Disarmament and International Security Committee
  • Economic and Social Council
  • United Nations Human Rights Council
  • United Nations Environment Programme

Chairs may apply for one or more councils and determine topics of their choice. In the upcoming weeks they should be able to prepare study guides, which will be made available online prior to the conference.

Please send your applications with a short Letter of Motivation and Curriculum Vitae to Applications for Chairs will be accepted until the 25th of August 2013.

We look forward to reading your applications,

The Secretariat
