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.

Now in his senior year at Vancouver College, Sean Cuevas is absolutely thrilled to serve as the director of the International Press Corps/Non-Governmental Organization Programme. Sean first became entrapped in Model UN after attending his first conference in 9th Grade, which to him was a truly eye-opening experience. Outside of MUN, Sean can be found memorizing lines to some production somewhere, writing sappy poetry, finding his latest musical obsession, or trying some random food-related challenge with his friends. Sean is truly excited to serve as Director for the IPC/NGO and strives to make it an unforgettable experience for everybody involved.
