The Latin American and Caribbean Parliament (LACP), founded in 1964, is a regional body devoted to economic and social development in Latin American nations. Currently with 23 member states, the committee is similar to the European Parliament in that it works with individual governments to govern a major portion of Central and South America. The Parliament also advocates for national strength and stability, playing a major role in the fight against modern day colonialism. Overall, while the LACP may not be the most well-know body, it plays an essential role in the daily lives of Latin Americans.

The LACP at CAHSMUN 2019 is a first of its kind in the Lower Mainland - delegates can now explore the perspectives of Latin American and Caribbean governments while debating issues prevalent to the international community. Position papers are strongly recommended for this committee, but are mandatory for delegates to be considered for awards. 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 lacp@cahsmun.org.


BACKGROUNDERS will be available soon


Anson Yu

Anson Yu | Director

Anson is a rising junior in the IB program at R.E. Mountain Secondary School and is ecstatic to serve as the Director of the LACP. All throughout her years of MUN, she continues to be thoroughly impressed by the passion, enthusiasm, and intelligence of the individuals around her. Anson is thrilled for this opportunity and sincerely hopes to create an unforgettable weekend for everyone. Outside of MUN, Anson can be found throwing a disc, overspending on frozen desserts, and playing guitar. In the rare cases that she is productive, she enjoys debating, participating in film festivals, and volunteering in her community. Anson is honoured to be serving as the Director of LACP and hopes to see fruitful debate full of collaboration at CAHSMUN 2019.

Megan Syho

Megan Syho | Chair

Currently in her senior year at Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School, Megan is absolutely thrilled to be serving as the Chair of LACP at CAHSMUN 2019. Ever since her first conference, Megan has fallen in love with the professionalism and unique environment that Model UN provides. From the heated debate to the numerous friendships made, she has overcome her fear of public speaking and is hoping to aid delegates in forging new perspectives and in opening dialogue to constructive solutions concerning global issues. When not dressed in western business attire, Megan can probably be found listening to generic radio music, running track & field, sneaking another purchase of bubble tea, or simply scrolling through the internet. Megan looks forward to creating a memorable experience for all delegates at CAHSMUN 2019!
