Most of the MUNers has a tendency to be the leaders in small communities, around friend groups, or in even larger circles. This inclination leads people to involve in MUN and MUN boosts this propensity in return. For instance, being the Director-General of a respected conference and having all the burdens of the organization on your shoulders is not as easy as it seems to be. However, while making the aftermath of the conference, stopping and being able to say “As a whole, we have achieved a goal that could come true only by hard work and commitment.” is priceless.
Let me introduce
some of the qualities that are reinforced while organizing an MUN conference. Obviously,
the first one is being able to persuade
other people. It is doubtless that leaders have been influential throughout
the centuries for people following them by their ability of convincing. An MUN
organizer must have this capability because (s)he will encounter many problems
on the road of getting a successful conference in the end but also will need
tocompromise with people causing these
troubles and find a way out. In addition, it is essential for the rest of the
team to have a well-equipped leader who is controlling whether the associates
are sticking to the schedule or not.
A leader should
have a strong fore-sight and predict
what problems await the team throughout the organization process. If the
required precautions cannot be taken beforehand, when the problem knocks the
door, there may be even bigger problems than assumed. In this case, the
reputation of the conference will be harmed dramatically.
that a good MUNer can obtain from organizing a conference are creativity. One of the TED Talks was
about how the human beings are growing out of creativity which I totally agree.
In the rush of the 21st century, we do not attach importance to
points which will not bring in money directly. Creativity is unfortunately one
of them but during the preparation of a conference, you have to force your
brain to find something new and interesting which ends up in exercising the
section of the brain responsible for creativity and imagination.
…and of course there exists many more. You will never find out what really you will get from organizing a conference before you do so.
