Hiring and Training the Best Committee Directors

Every year, significant time and effort is put into the process of hiring our Directors. Directors are not only responsible for running our committees and educating our delegates, but also for writing our world-class background guides, guiding delegates prior to the conference through e-mail and social media, and mentoring our Assistant Directors. The Directors form the backbone of our conference, and hiring the best and the brightest from our applicant pool is a top priority for our conference Senior Staff.

With NHSMUN’s exciting expansion into the two-session model, we are thrilled to be bringing on more staff members than ever before. Every year, we are forced to turn away several exceptional applicants to our Director and Assistant Director positions. Expanding our staff from 98 volunteers to 135 allows us to give even more brilliant college students from across the globe a chance to contribute to NHSMUN’s unparalleled delegate experience. Recently, our Senior Staff hired 50 exceptional Directors for both our substantive and administrative teams. Keeping in the tradition of a worldwide NHSMUN staff, our Directors hail from all across the globe and look forward to bringing their unique perspectives to the committee room. After several weeks of application review, interviews, and intense deliberation, the best of our applicant pool were assigned their committees and will hit the ground running to select topics and begin the newly revamped training program, as well as the rigorous Background Guide writing process.

We look forward to sharing more NHSMUN updates with you throughout the year. Keep your eyes open for a comprehensive review of our selected topics very soon!
