CUE Hosts Successful Model UN Conference

Posted on: Mar 13, 2017

On March 3-5 Concordia for the first time hosted the Alberta Intercollegiate Model UN. Over 90 students from post-secondary institutions from across Alberta represented 43 countries.

Kelsea Gillespie, our CSA President, presided over the delegates, assisted by Athiang Makuoi of MacEwan University. She did an outstanding job.

Ian Lee, President of the Model UN Club, and a number of club and CSA volunteers worked very hard to organize a tremendous event. Thanks to Professor Caroline Howarth and the Fine Arts Department for their help and cooperation in sharing the auditorium space.

The event was capped off with a Saturday night banquet at the Coast Plaza Hotel featuring keynote speaker the Hon. Marlin Schmidt, Minister of Advanced Education, who was grilled by his student audience on a number of issues.

The Model UN fundraising dinner and silent auction will be held on Sunday April 9 at the ParkLane Restaurant.
