Councils and Boards is an organ with an exciting combination of crisis committee styles for NCSC XLVII. Combining some of the most traditional committees in Model UN like the United Nations Security Council with more innovative bodies like the National Iranian Oil Company Board, Councils and Boards is NCSC's take on the cutting-edge of committee structure. Committees are slightly larger (20-25 delegates) than the traditional crisis committee, and represent formal non-state and inter-state organizations that have an increasing level of influence over global affairs. The themes within these committees range from the acute sense of competition on a corporate board of directors to the sweeping powers of intelligence bodies in exploiting weaknesses and creating strategy. There may be a degree of variation in committee structure and procedure, but these committees will continue to challenge delegates to approach issues with new levels of innovation, perseverance, and tactical brilliance while maintaining NCSC’s traditional crisis elements.
