Hello! Welcome to Harvard Model Congress 2015. My name is Mack Andrews, and I am extremely excited to chair the House Financial Services Committee this year!
This year, the House Financial Services Committee will examine some of the most pressing financial issues of this generation. For example, we’ll look into the efficiency of the Export-Import Bank of the United States, an agency that has tremendous impact on United States exports but that very few people are aware even exists.
Beyond committee, HMC will be a unique opportunity for you to experience the legislative branch of American government and meet other students from across the country (and world!) who share your passion for politics. You will be exposed to a wide diversity of opinions, and you will have the chance to broaden and question your own perspective on topical issues. You will also get to explore Boston and the Harvard campus!
As your chair, I am excited to make your HMC experience both intellectually stimulating and a ton of fun.
Feel free to shoot me an email at any point to introduce yourselves and ask any questions you may have between now and the conference. I encourage you to start stepping into your roles as Representatives by staying attuned to current events and keeping an ear out for developments regarding the Export-Import Bank and larger issues regarding the international trade balance.
I look forward to meeting you and hope to hear from you soon!
