Definition: Student Officer (Chair or President)

"A Chair or President is the leader of a committee; one, who confidently guides the delegates through debate, one to answer all their questions and one to turn a group of young students into competent delegates of the nations they represent, who are skilfully addressing vital issues of global importance.

Serving as a Chair gives you the great opportunity of stimulating lobbying, coordinating debate and initiating effective resolutions. However, the position also comes with great responsibility. You are the face of the conference to all your delegates. You represent the entire Student Officer team, as well as the Executive Staff, being the link between them and the delegates. You set the tone for the entire weekend. You serve as a role model to the delegates and you will be the one to encourage young students to rise above themselves in diplomatic debate."
