How Meetings Are Run
Posted 19-09-2017 07:54PM

It may be assumed that the different committees within the JoMUN conference all have different ways of conducting their meetings, despite the intensive chair training they went through last year. This would be entirely true.

Omisha Chaitanya, one of the chairs of the Disarmament Commission, says that a normal meeting for this room "involves a huge greeting" followed by taking attendance and checking if all the delegates in the room have completed their work. 

In contrast, Admin is one of the few JoMUN committees that do not debate during the conference. Rather, these participants ensure that the conference runs smoothly from the arrival of other school's delegations to passing notes during the debates. This means they must work slightly differently to the other committees that are participating in the debates. This is immediately evident as, according to Deputy Chair of Admin, Campbell Ferguson, their meeting usually involve an introduction by both chairs and their supervisor, Mrs. Dee Slattery, followed by the members of the committee splitting into smaller groups to divide the work into more sizeable chunks to accomplish a common end goal.

This being said, the difference in the way the meetings are conducted also means that each room has had its own unique interesting moments. Omisha, for example, said that a delegate of NATO once did not do his policy statement on time and walked in with two bags of chips for her and the other chair Abhimanyu Rai as an apology. Campbell however, said that he can recall more stressful moments of disorganization. In conclusion, while the committees may run their meetings differently, they all enable participants to enjoy the experience of being a part of a formal conference, witness heated debates, and form new friendships.
