Welcome to Harvard Model Congress 2017! Our names are Julie Higgins and Andrew Wilcox and we are looking forward to chairing the Media Committee this year.
Congratulations on being a part of the one of the most dynamic committees at HMC Boston! We trust that you will leave the conference feeling like you have made meaningful contributions to not only the media committee but also to the conference at large!
As a part of this committee, you will be engaging with some of the most contentious issues in U.S. politics making all efforts to report unbiasedly and fairly. You will be sitting in on committee sessions, conducting interviews and press conferences, and, finally, creating content that will be shared with the entirety of the conference. As members of the press, you are expected to report on advancements and events as soon as they happen. The rest of the conference is depending on you for these timely reports that cover all sides of the issue or event in an accurate manner.
We hope that in your time at the conference you will be able to better understand the roles of American journalists through the hands-on experience you will be obtaining, while also getting the opportunity to meet other students from across the country who share your passion for journalism and politics!
As your chairs, we hope to provide you with a challenging experience at the conference that will push you towards achieving greater potential as a journalist while also having fun! Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions at all! We can’t wait to meet you!
Julie and Andrew
