nesbru chair - markus clark
My name is Markus Clark, and I will be chairing the topic of “Disarmament of nuclear and chemical weapons in Syria” in the DISEC committee. By the time of the conference I will be 19years old, with nearly 4 years of MUN experience. I fell in love with MUN after my first introduction to it, during the fall of 2016. I have since then attended 2 SANMUN conferences as a delegate, 1 as a chair, delegate at THIMUN for 3 consecutive years and sat as President of NESMUN for the winter term of 2017/18. I have debated and chaired endless topics, and always find it amusing. I have always been one to debate and research everything and nothing, and MUN has given me the opportunity to put those countless hours into use. I hope that all that will be present during the conference will find the same joy that I have, and do not hesitate to contact me if there are any questions!
SVGS chair - arthur hauge
Greetings! My name is Arthur and I will be one of the DISEC chairs! It all started on a late-summer month where my dear friend introduced me to MUN in 2016. I've been an avid reader of recent political events so being in MUN quickly sparked a fire in me. Throughout my journey in MUN, I have been a delegate for DPRK, Russia and China which could deem me immersed in their political stances on many issues. I participated in SAMNUN 2017 where I got to experience many insightful perspectives and enthusiaistic students. In SANMUN 2018, I will be participating as a chair for the 1st DISEC. I, with my sincerest intentions, hope to experience another compelling and interesting debate session during this year's convention
