2016 Model United Nations Secretariat

2016 Secretariat

Reisher, Ostrander, Doepken, Tatum
Taylor, Shercliffe, Cavitt, Amos, Erickson

All members of the Secretariat are UAA students who have participated in Model United Nations of Alaska multiple times. They start volunteering their time early in the fall semester to prepare for the annual conference in February. Their club solicits donations from the community and they take time to visit high school classrooms to encourage younger students to participate. 

The Secretariat also help keep track of the MUN inventory and update the rules and procedures for future conferences. They assist the director in preparing other college students for the conference. To say these students are always busy would be an understatement.
