NMUN-NY ADVISORY BOARD APPLICATION (2012-2014)
The NMUN-NY Advisory Board was created in 2008 to help assure the quality of the NMUN –NY simulation by both: (a)
providing advice to the Secretary-General and Directors-General of the NMUN-Conference; and, (b) giving attending
schools a voice in conference planning through the election of faculty members by their peers. The prior two year’s SGs
and DGs will typically also serve as part of our commitment to continually learn from past simulations and improve the
conference. The NMUN-NY Advisory Board is separate from the NCCA Board of Directors which manages organizational
finances and sets long term priorities for programs, including the NMUN Program. The NCCA views the creation of the
NMUN-NY Advisory Board as an asset to assure quality in planning the current year’s annual NMUN-NY conference while
the NCCA Board focuses on long-term, strategic issues.
The NMUN-NY Advisory Board will have up to 10 voting members with the election of additional faculty to two year terms
and the possible selection of the 2012 NMUN SG/DGs as advisors to the 2013 Secretariat Terms are for two years. The
NCCA-NMUN Executive Director or designate will also serve on the Advisory Board as a liaison between the Advisory
Board and the NCCA.
Requirements and Responsibilities
Participation in e-mail discussions of committee choices, topic selection, volunteer staff training input.
Three prior years of experience as an advisor at NMUN-NY with the intention to attend the next year’s conference.
