My name is Noah Macdonald and I am proud to be serving as the Chief of Staff for the third annual WCHSMUN conference. As a grade 12 student at Western Canada High School, this will be my last experience with Model UN in high school; I aim to make it as great a success as possible. MUN has been one of my defining extracurricular activities over the past two years; between acting as the Head Crisis Director for ADHOC at WCHSMUN 2017, travelling to Montréal for SSUNS (twice), and participating in (too many) UNSC committees here in Calgary, MUN has become somewhat of an obsession.
With all of these experiences in mind, I, alongside the rest of the WCHSMUN secretariat, have worked tirelessly to create the ideal conference for you.
Nearly a year of planning and countless hours of hard work have lead to the creation of six unique committees. Our Star Wars JCC promises the most fulfilling fictional crisis experience imaginable, just as the Alphabet Board of Directors will teach you more about the tech industry than ever before. If European politics is more your thing, we have the Council of the European Union (Transport, Telecommunications, and Energy). Likewise, the Syrian Crisis and the illegal use of chemical weapons will be explored in an historical context through the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (2013). If that’s still too modern for you, join Hannibal at the Gates: Defence of the Roman Senate, where I will be acting as a Crisis Director.
Between all six committees, a comprehensive array of committee types and topics are covered; both novice and experienced delegates alike will be given the chance to improve their skills while enjoying a high-quality conference experience.
I hope you will join us and help make WCHSMUN 2018 our best conference yet!
