PLEASE READ FIRST

Delegates interested in being selected for the NGF must be nominated by their respective advisers; an application will then be given out to nominated delegates by their advisers. Final decisions of participants are made by Conference Staff based on space.

Committee Description

The Non-Governmental Forum is a committee of up to 12 delegates selected from the ranks of the conference. Each delegate will represent three distinct Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in three broad agenda points drawn up by the Secretary General. Acting as a sort of lobby corps for the conference, students will roam from committee to committee offering their services as a resource to their peers while inspiring creative resolutions that their NGOs envision for a better tomorrow.

What is your name, position, delegation, grade, and the number of years you’ve been in MUN?

Victor Xing, Secretary-General, Montgomery, 12th grade, 4 years.

 

What is the best thing about your committee?

The best thing about Non-Governmental Forum is the free flowing nature of it. Instead of being confined to one type of committee the entire time, you get to visit many committees! You also get to represent the ideals of organizations rather than countries, making NGF a refreshing experience.

 

What advice do you have for new delegates?

New delegates, know that Model United Nations is not all about public speaking, passing resolutions, or getting an officer position. Yes, those things are a part of conference, but if you solely focus on those things, you miss out on a lot of other things in conference. Try to keep an open mind, and soak everything in!

 

What is your favorite MUN memory or experience?

In my General Assembly experience my sophomore year, we were in a room with about 75% new members. Nobody really spoke the first day, and everyone was nervous. However, after the chair and vice chairs addressed the committee about this and gave a few inspirational words, the committee exploded with energy the next day! It was amazing seeing many people speak for the first time, to realize that they want to do it over and over again. That moment made me realize that I wanted to be someone who could help others do that, and that’s why I’m here today.

 

What other activities do you do?

Outside of Model United Nations, I play the clarinet and piano. I’m involved in various music programs, such as marching band. I also do a lot of community activities, such as playing music for senior citizens and volunteering at the Chinese school.

 

List some fun facts/icebreaker kind of information. Some examples are: Your favorite food, a country you would want to visit, tv shows you watch, type of music you listen to, etc.

I generally don’t have a lot of free time, but when I do, I love to take naps and play video games such as Vainglory! I also used to live in Boston in 1st grade, so I’m a huge Patriots and Celtics fan. One of my favorite things to do is travel, and one of my wishes is to visit all seven continents!

 

Anything else you’d like to share?

I’m extremely excited to meet all of you! Feel free to reach out to me over Facebook or Instagram! See you all at conference 🙂
