We think that the topics for this year are going to create a fantastic opportunity for some interesting debate, but they should also hopefully help push you to bring a wide variety of ideas to the table. While we want all of our delegates to leave HMCA feeling fulfilled, we also want our committee to be an opportunity for all of you to get to know students that share in your political passions. By the end of the conference our hope is that you not only grow academically, but that you also challenge and even broaden your own perspectives. We want to make your HMCA experience as fun and engaging as the ones we’ve had in the past.
Over the course of the next couple of months feel free to email either of us with absolutely any questions you may have about the conference or just to get to know us. We’re incredibly excited to be your staffers this year and can’t wait to meet you at the conference.
Sebastian Wagner-Carena and Rachel Chiu
Chairs, World Trade Organization
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 30th and should be sent to your committee chairs by email (see below). 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.
