AD-HOC COMMITTEE OF THE SECRETARY-GENERAL
CRISIS MANAGER: CHASE WAGERS
cHAIR: SIDD MUCHHAL
APPROXIMATE COMMITTEE SIZE: 20
The Ad-Hoc Committee of the Secretary-General at NAIMUN brings the most competitive crisis delegates from around the world to compete in a specially-designed simulation that combines fast-paced and exciting crisis with the added element of a surprise topic. While education remains one of the central components of NAIMUN, we believe that education goes beyond research, so this year the topic will be withheld until the start of the first committee session. Will you accept the challenge of the Ad-Hoc and come compete at the highest stage in North America? The world is waiting- what will you do?
