A Letter from the Chair
Welcome to Senate, 1933! My name is Genevieve Pool and I am looking forward to serving as your chair. I am from Cincinnati, Ohio and am a junior in the School of Foreign Service. I have had the pleasure of being highly involved in Model United Nations at Georgetown, as a member of our travel team and staffing. I directed FDR’s Cabinet at NAIMUN LIII, chaired the NSA at NAIMUN LIV, and have competed in a Senate committee, so I am excited to see what new ideas delegates bring to the table!
The 73rd United States Congress was pivotal in expanding the role of the federal government. We will be tackling Roosevelt’s New Deal, and the myriad topics covered from 1933 to 1935. This committee will be centered around public works and the national economy, but it will be delegate-directed – you will select the topics that interest you the most, and have the opportunity to re-write history!
Our fantastic staff, from our Under-Secretary Generals to our rapporteurs, have been hard at work to create a weekend that will push your creativity and diplomacy skills. I fully expect every delegate to walk out of the Senate with a new friend, fond memories, and a greater understanding of the dedication and compromise skills necessary to make the United States Senate work. I look forward to meeting you all in February; please feel free to reach out to me with questions.
Chair, US Senate
