During the conference, our committee is tasked with solving important issues dealing with domestic drone usage and aid to Kurdish forces. Our aim is to craft policy recommendations that most effectively implement the president’s policy agenda and protect US citizens from growing threats.
This conference offers you a firsthand experience in lawmaking—you witness a piece of legislation stem from an idea to a committee-negotiated resolution. As members of the executive branch, you will also see another side of American federalism: the coordination of advisors and agency heads to aid the president in day-to-day administration of federal policy. Specifically, NSC handles some of the nation’s most sensitive information and coordinates executive actions such as targeted killings and hostage rescues.
As your senior staffer, I hope to offer you a transformative experience in which you will hone your negotiating and speaking skills. Most importantly, I hope you learn more about important world issues and engage your mind in a way that will make you a better global citizen.
I look forward to working with you! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the conference, committee, or briefing topics. I am extremely excited to work with all of you. Good luck with your preparation and see you in January!
All the best,
Chair, National Security Council
Each delegate will submit two one-minute speeches, one on each briefing topic. These speeches should written from the perspective of the delegate’s assigned role — for example, a delegate assigned the role of the United States should present arguments that the United States would be in favor of. The pre-conference assignments are due on December 22nd and should be sent to your committee chairs by email (see above). Delegates should use this opportunity to research their role and become familiar with the topics at hand in order to prepare for the conference. Committee chairs will provide feedback on these assignments before the conference.
