Caucus leaders are the spinal cord of the Salvador Model United Nations Conference. They are the ones responsible for not only helping to organize the event, but it is also their task to assist their delegates and guide them as they navigate the resolution passing process. In the months that lead to MUN, the caucus leaders need to be working on revising resolutions, proofreading speeches and helping their delegates in the best way possible—especially the freshmen and new delegates. This work that comes prior to the actual event is crucial to the success of the delegates and their work.
During the sessions, the caucus leader is the voice of order and reason within the caucus. He or she needs to address to the issues concisely, establish clear regulations and promote “fruitful” debate. In order to do so, caucus leaders should impose punishments if delegates do not follow parliamentary procedures, conduct themselves disrespectfully and/or disrupt the flow of debates. A qualified and consistent caucus leader seeks the fine balance between order, educational merit, and productiveness.CONTACT INFORMATION:
