1 Selection of the 2011 Global Model United Nations Secretariat and General Assembly Officials One of the objectives of the Global Model United Nations (GMUN) Conference is to replicate the functioning of the United Nations deliberative bodies as closely as possible. To assist with the planning and organization of the simulation, one group of university students will function as Secretariat officials, similar to those in the United Nations Secretariat. A second group of university students will be selected as General Assembly officials. Both groups are critical to the management of the General Assembly and will, therefore, be important to the success of the simulation. The aim is to have a geographically diverse group of Officials who will take on leadership roles in the planning process, with the guidance of UN staff and the UN Department of Public Information. Two workshops will be organized the first will be convened at UN Headquarters in New York in mid-may and the second will take place the week before the conference in order to prepare GMUN officials for the roles they will be assuming at the GMUN conference.
