FEMUN 2021 - GA Officials
In accordance with the UN4MUN format, delegates play a more substantive role in the Conference than they do in typical MUN simulations, which adds to the appeal of their participation. Since the decision-making in the real United Nations is done primarily by the Member States (rather than the appointed Secretariat officials), the same procedure is applied in the FEMUN 2021.
In frames of FEMUN, General Assembly Officials (GAO) are the Chairpersons elected among the delegates by delegates.
The responsibilities of the GAO include:
- - monitoring the work of the committee;
- - conducting the line-by-line review;
- - preparing reports on the work of the Committee.
In order to manage the work of the Committee efficiently, GAO should be experts in their agendas, should have profound knowledge on their Committee, its mandate, and scope of work.
At FEMUN 2021, the GAO will be elected for the following Committees: General Assembly Second Committee and General Assembly Third Committee.
The position of GAO is perfect for those who desire to:
- - observe the Conference from the perspective of the Secretariat;
- - acquire experience in the sphere of moderating the Committee’s work;
- - get a chance to make a significant impact on the functioning of the Committee;
- - deepen the knowledge in the UN4MUN procedure.
This opportunity is truly unique as far as it can level up your management skills, obtain new knowledge and plunge into the atmosphere of preparation for the Conference!
As a result of the Elections ended on May 7 the following candidates were selected:
GA Second Committee
Ms. Anna Barysheva
I am a first-degree student of Asian Studies. Currently, I am learning the Chinese language, however, I've been already keen on speaking English, French, and German. Diplomacy and International Relations have changed my life. After applying for a bachelor's programme at the university I joined a MUNRFE Vladivostok Club and have participated in three conferences. I really enjoyed the atmosphere during the previous Conferences, and I was fascinated by the work of the Secretariat. I was always interested in becoming a leader and obtaining its competencies. Leadership and active life at school are completely different from the same at the university but I fully cherish it and would love to continue achieving new goals.
GA Third Committee
