So here is the Commack Model UN Livejournal. Exciting, right?President: Caitlin Biello
All the officers are going to have posting access, but any member of Commack Model UN can join the community (this is highly reccomended if you have a livejournal, because then you can veiw updates on your friends page). If you don't have a livejournal, they might be worth investing in, and by investing, I mean getting one for free :).
Anyone will be able to comment on the posts made by an officer, either anonymously or under their livejournal user name, but please keep the comments appropriate and relevant. If you are going to post anonymously, just say at the bottom of the comment who you are, so we know.
Ok, so today's meeting was basically just elections. The officers are as follows:
1st Vice President: Melissa Perry
2nd Vice President: Meghan Corbet
Secretary: Paula Nemerson
Treasurer: Andrea Jaffe
There is going to be a conference at the Middle School. It can be expected that this conference will take place in mid-June. Possibly the 9th and 10th. It will be a two day conference and there will be four committees. Legal, DISEC, SOCHUM, which were the GA committees at the Cornell Conference, and then an additional one that Adena had at the Harvard conference she went to. This will make our lives easier because we are, of course, experts in these areas. Our job at this conference will be to chair these committees. Most likely you will be involved with the committee that you were on for Cornell, except for the people who will be assigned to the one from Harvard. More on that later though. We are going to have opening and closing ceremonies and awards will be given out. The winners of Best in Delegation will be offered a spot on our MUN team for next year.
I am getting information about t-shirts tomorrow so you all may get an e-mail from me with an attachment containing the order form so we can possibly start collecting the money next Friday at the meeting. We want to get those ordered A.S.A.P. so we can wear them at our Middle School conference! Expect them to be about $15.
At the next meeting we should have more information about which conferences we are going to attend next year so you can think about which you would like to participate in. Each conference we are going to take about 15 members, so choose wisely, as there might be some competition, so you want to choose the one you can really dedicate the most energy to.
So, I hope you are all thinking that this Livejournal is pretty fly. You better, because either way you need to bring in $1 next meeting to pay for it. Much love.
edit: Yes, I know. Pretty much this says exactly what Paula's e-mail says, I just wanted to post something to make sure everything was working and such, so this was just kind of a test entry. Sorry if I bored you :/. Next Meeting:
Friday, April 29
