The International Press Corps is all but a typical MUN experience. IPC reporters represent different news agencies; each agency, such as the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) or the Cable News Network (CNN), greatly varies in writing style and philosophy. Instead of the traditional public speaking-focused aspect of Model UN, the reporters of the IPC move from committee to committee, carefully examining delegates’ foreign policy, observe new alliances between nations, and report on the key ideas of various resolutions. Once reporters gather the necessary information, they will write short articles for their respective news agencies, resulting in either high praise of innovative and favourable resolutions papers, or bring upon heavy criticism of controversial solutions passed by a given committee.

A committee session for IPC reporters always brings a different experience than the last; reporters can find themselves interviewing delegates, attending press conferences, briefing committees on breaking news and emerging crises, and, of course, writing articles.  Prospective reporters of the IPC should have a passion for writing, and be prepared to apply their inquisitive and adventurous traits.

IPC is a committee suited for experienced delegates, but is open to delegates of all experience levels wishing to challenge their capacity as delegates. Position papers are mandatory for this committee. Please read about CAHSMUN’s Position Paper policy, which can be found under the list of committees on the “Committees” page.

Questions, inquiries, and position papers for this committee can be emailed to ipcngo@cahsmun.org.

Kristy Kwok | IPC Staff

As she enters her senior year at Richmond Christian School, Kristy is delighted to be serving as Director of the International Press Corps/Non-Governmental Organizations Programme at CAHSMUN 2020. Over her three years as a Model UN delegate, she has fostered an insatiable interest in global affairs, honed her late-night researching skills, and created countless long-lasting memories; many of those skills and memories were cultivated within IPC and NGO, and she will do her utmost to ensure similar growth and enjoyment for this year’s delegates. When not in Model UN, Kristy can be found obsessively listening to Broadway cast recordings, overspending on bubble tea, and repeatedly neglecting her sleep schedule. She looks forward to meeting everyone this April!

Albert is currently a senior attending the IB Programme at Port Moody Secondary School and is honoured to serve as the Chair for the International Press Corps (IPC). Albert's passion for Model UN since grade 10 has stemmed from its fiery debates and realistic simulations of diplomacy; he cannot wait to share his experiences with delegates for CAHSMUN 2020! During his free time, Albert enjoys participating in business case competitions, working for multiple non-profit organizations, playing badminton, and confusing himself in High-Level Math and Physics from the dreaded IB. Albert is exhilarated to witness the combinational progress in communications from the international press corporations and looks forward to a fruitful weekend!
