New Delegate Committee

This year, SOMA is introducing a new delegate committee, specifically targeted to students who are new to MUN and/or public speaking. We heavily encourage that only students who have either no or limited previous MUN experience choose this committee. The committee that will be run is UNHRC, one of SOMA's more popular committees, and the same topics and background guides will be used.
