RichMUN 2019 Secretariat Hired Term:

August 2018 – May 2019 (inclusive)

About RichMUN:

RichMUN is a day conference based in Richmond, BC, designed to serve as a leadership curriculum for  Secretariat members. We believe that taking care of our Secretariat and providing meaningful skills development opportunities is the foundation to a fun, engaging, and intellectually stimulating conference. Secretariat are expected to recreate this value towards their staff.

Furthermore, we embrace the position as more than a name on a resume. Specifically, your involvement will be a valuable learning opportunity to develop skills, beyond what would be otherwise possible through high-school opportunities. Other organizations may pre-establish plans, hiring Secretariat as workers, and leaving them without valuable understanding or development opportunities. Alternatively, they may provide creative liberty, with little training or mentor-ship, resulting in a lack of guidance and direction.

To pursue a meaningful experience, RichMUN secretariat will be involved in, and supported through, every aspect of the conference. Starting with involvement in orientation and training – the first of their kind in the Vancouver MUN scene. (see more details below) Furthermore, the smaller team size reflects our values of streamlining for optimal effectiveness and efficiency. A small team size, while requiring more individual initiative and involvement, will allow you to operate within a broader range of responsibilities. This in turn, creating more opportunities to understand and experience the conference components.
