Be part of the ELMUN GenSec!

After this year’s ELMUN conference has come to an end, we are now looking for our new Deputies. As in ELMUN, the highest student leadership positions are the ones of the Secretary General and the President of the General Assembly. Furthermore, we are establishing the position of Conference Manager.

Now you have the chance to become a member of next year’s ELMUN General Secretariat! In order for you to complete your application, we would like you to write a motivational letter consisting of 500 words (please state the position you are applying for). By that, we will have the chance to get to know you better and decide which position might be most suitable for you. The applications will be open until 16th June 2019 and must be sent to this E-Mail (

The GenSec carries a high amount of responsibility – we take care of the organization for the entire conference! Deputies and the Conference Manager must be hard-working and organized, but most importantly a team-player. Before the conference starts, we are the ones that choose the Chairs, determine all delegations and find sponsors for ELMUN. To conclude, we are the people behind ELMUN.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us via e-mail or find us in R34.

Yours Sincerely

Emma Lehbib and Janko Grootes
