Type of Committees at McMUN
We are proud to host three General Assembly (GA) committees at McMUN each year. They range from around 150 to 320 delegates, making them the largest committee category at our conference. This year the GAs are organized around three sustainable development goals to remind delegates that the topics they will be debating are real and pressing issues facing the international community today. Delegates are expected to craft resolutions composed of innovative solutions that the United Nations should implement, while adhering to their respective country’s policy.
Economic and Social Councils:
The Economic and Social Council designation (ECOSOCs) refers to the second largest committees at McMUN. They will range from around 50 to 70 delegates and are structured identical to the General Assemblies. However, they deal with more niche policy issues and often are set in the context of smaller committees at the United Nations.
Specialized Agencies (SAs) at McMUN are often focused on policymaking, but there are often crisis elements that delegates will have to address. The category also houses our uniquely structured legal and consulting committees. In addition to historical and present-day government and international agencies, it also includes our speciality French and Spanish bilingual bodies. SAs this year will range anywhere from 30 to 60 delegates, barring our one smaller SA, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.
Our Crisis committees at McMUN are the smallest, most fast-paced, and often the most competitive sessions at the conference. Delegates will have to constantly react to issues facing their committee and while advancing their own position among the committee as well. In addition to six diverse historical, future, and fictitious crises committees, we will also be hosting one Joint-Crisis Committee and one Triple Joint-Crisis Committee this year.
