The Ad-hoc Committee of the Secretary-General

Chair: Jaylan Smith

CM: Aaron Baum


NOTE: Delegates in the ad-hoc will not receive the committee topic prior to first committee session on thursday evening. 

The Ad-hoc Committee of the Secretary-General is an annual competition of the best delegates in the North American circuit. Delegates in this committee are tasked with the most difficult of challenges and should be prepared for a weekend of a lifetime. Both debate and crisis in the Ad-hoc committee have been meticulously structured to challenge and to excite everyone, and delegates in the Ad-hoc Committee are sure to come away with an experience they will never forget. 


About the Chair: Jaylan Smith is a Junior in Georgetown's School of Foreign Service studying International Economics, concentrating on the Arab World and Middle East. He spent the first half of the year studying abroad in Jordan and Morocco, but was eager to return to the States to pursue his true passion of singing along to the Game of Thrones theme song and tending to his beloved twitter account @barackojaylan. Jaylan is very excited to get to know all of you well in committee, and cannot wait to see how things go!

About the Crisis Manager: Aaron Baum—Georgetown School of Foreign Service '20—is pursuing a major in Regional Studies with a focus on Asia. His interests are listed on his resume as: "Model United Nations, Photography, Biking, Skiing, The Indicator Podcast from Planet Money," so make of that what you will. If Aaron and Jaylan had a joint resume, their interests section would read: "Game of Thrones, Linguistics, Jazz in the Garden, Twitter, J. Crew, Quesadillas (Jaylan makes, Aaron eats)." Aaron is looking forward to running a fun, fast-paced crisis.
