Rules of Procedure
Chair Susanne Goetz
Susanne goes by the nickname Susi and is a student at Leiden University in the Netherlands, where she studies two Bachelors: Psychology and International Relations. She chaired UN WOMEN last year at MarmaraMUN, and is very excited to come back this year.
Before becoming a chair, she was a delegate, faculty adviser, and treasurer of LeidenMUN. As delegate she was known for thorough research, which is why she still, as chair, values if delegates know their content. She also enjoys a heated debate, and encourages delegates to make smart, strategic choices. Further, Susi believes that socials are an essential part of MUN, and looks forward to making new friends on the dancefloor.
As chair of a futuristic crisis, she expects all delegates to be energetic and creative, and she cannot wait to see where the debate will go. After all, the collapse of the world as we know it is not such an unrealistic scenario anymore...
