eDITOR-IN-CHIEF: SAM NELSON
approximate committee size: 18
Tasked with producing two issues of the NAIMUN Daily, Press Corps is not a traditional committee. Press Corps is responsible for the role of a global journalistic body, reporting on various topics from different committees throughout the conference. As reporters, each individual will be held to high journalistic and professional standards to bridge the gap between those in power and the public. Being in Press Corps is fast paced and demanding, but you will soon learn that the role of a journalist is essential.

Understand the power that journalism (and other media channels) has in modern geopolitics and world affairs along with the necessity for unbiased and transparent reporting
