The Director is the final authority on substantive matters in committee. As such, the Director, and the Assistant Director if necessary, will often require revisions to a working paper, including changes in format and/or content, before it can be submitted to the committee at large.
According to the ICAO mission, the purpose of editing is only educational and the Director must fulfill the following tasks:
Ask delegates to remove duplication of prior work of the committee;
Ask delegates to remove items that are factually incorrect;
Encourage delegates to work towards resolving the topic at hand, if the content of the paper does not directly address it;
Ask delegate to clarify items such as the budgeting and finance of their proposals, how the proposals will be operationalized and by whom, and the timeframe of the proposals;
Prompt delegates to develop their ideas with pertinent questions.
Chair in Committee
The Chair is in charge of leading the committee’s formal debate in accordance to the ModelICAO Rules of Procedure. Working with the Director, the Chair assures that the committee operates in a efficient manner. This position requires a very thorough working knowledge of the rules of procedure and a professional presence on the dais. Chair applicants should have significant Model United Nations experience, particularly at the NMUN Conference.
Chair must fulfill the following tasks:
Runs motions and procedures and acts as the arbiter of deliberations;
Supports the Director in the correction of working documents produced by the committee;
Manages interactions between DAIS and delegates.
We are also looking for volunteers who would like to be involved in the organization by helping during the ModelICAO. These people will be ask to assist the organizers to make sure that the ModelICAO runs in a efficient manner. This opportunity is perfect for those wishing to develop skills in facilitation of debate, conflict resolution and customer service while learning alongside delegates about emerging global issues and discovering an international organization.
