The Non-Governmental Organizations Programme (NGO Programme) is a unique committee that incorporates what delegates think of as “traditional” Model United Nations (debating over issues, verbally) and a portion of what reporters do in the International Press Corps (writing articles based on what is happening in different committees). By doing so, delegates will not only be able to affect a committee verbally, but they would be able to affect the debate, on paper as well.

In the NGO Programme, delegates will be representing their respective NGOs, such as Amnesty International, or Conservation International, and will be partaking in the debate of committees that their NGO pertains to. Furthermore, delegates will also be required to write an article based on their NGO’s position on what they have accomplished in each committee session. It is up to these NGOs to sway the debate in their favour and to complete their agenda.

NGO committee sessions will be both fun and frantic: delegates would have to be actively debating, while also writing about the debate in terms of their NGO’s agenda. NGO delegates can also find themselves giving their input on resolution papers, discussing different solutions in unmoderated caucuses, or even making alliances with other delegates.

The NGO Programme is a committee suited for experienced delegates, but is open to delegates of all experience levels wishing to challenge their capacity in MUN. Position papers are mandatory for delegates in 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 | NGO 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!
