International Press Corps
The International Press Corps (IPC) serves as the organization for journalistic coverage of the various committees at the conference. Members of the IPC will be charged with the vital task of observing and reporting the activity of each committee. Much of the press’s time will be spent in various committees, monitoring the progress of debate, conducting interviews with delegates, and so forth. In addition to descriptions of the proceedings of the committees, the reports of the IPC will utilize the editorial position of each individual country to provide critical analysis of the issues at hand. These reports will be distributed to the conference in order to inform all delegates of the events of each committee. Furthermore, some members of the IPC will closely follow the progress of the ongoing crisis, providing timely updates of the situation to the entire conference.

Michelle Chilles, Co-Chair
My name is Michelle Chiles and I am a freshman at Rhodes College. I am thinking of double majoring in History and Spanish, and maybe minoring in Political Science. I’m from Memphis, TN and graduated from White Station High School. I have participated in MUN for two years. I have travelled to Mexico and Hungary, and have lived in Panama and Puerto Rico. An interesting fact about me is that I am a dual citizen of Panama and the US, since I was born in the canal-zone – in the same hospital as John McCain, interestingly enough
