The International Atomic Energy Agency was founded in 1957 to promote the use of nuclear energy for peaceful aims and diminish the dangers associated with it. The IAEA serves as the primary forum for discussion of all things relating to Nuclear Energy and also plays a vital role in the regulation of Nuclear weaponry.
This committee is designed for both beginners and experienced delegates alike. Position papers, although strongly recommended, are not required. However, delegates who wish to be considered for an award must submit their position papers by February 7th, 2020, at 23:59 PST. More information about position papers will be found on page 3 of the Background Guide.
Alison Lee | Director
Currently in her final year at West Point Grey Academy, Alison is thrilled to be directing the International Atomic Energy Agency and VMUN 2020. Since attending her first Model UN conference over two years ago, she has and continues to be inspired by the passionate individuals around her and hopes to inspire others to immerse themselves in the incredibly rewarding activity as well. Aside from Model UN, Alison can be found tripping over her two left feet, trying and failing to understand basic math, and struggling to keep her plants alive. In the rare occasion that she attempts to be productive, Alison enjoys writing slam poetry, debating, and reading humorous self-help books. Alison looks forward to a weekend packed with debate and collaboration, and is ecstatic to meet everyone in February!
Koby Chen | Chair
Embarking on his sophomore year at St. George’s school, Koby is beyond elated to be serving as the chair for the International Atomic Energy Agency. Model United Nations, being the intersection of debate, diplomacy, and oversized statecraft, has been an activity he has relished and engaged in since grade 8. Outside of Model UN, Koby can be found obsessively binging Netflix sitcoms, swimming laps at the pool, and struggling to center clay at the potter’s wheel. He is certain that IAEA and this iteration of VMUN will be an electric experience for all delegates, and he hopes that all delegates will savor this weekend full of discourse.
Jordan Rosenfeld | Assistant Director
Jordan is a student at St. George’s School, and is in his senior year. Jordan has been participating in Model United Nations as both a delegate and a staff since he entered 8th grade. This will be Jordan’s 5th time participating in VMUN, and he is thrilled to join the VMUN staffing team as his high school career comes to a close. MUN has allowed Jordan to broaden his perspective on world views, and has been a vessel for Jordan to improve his debate and public speaking skills. Apart from MUN, Jordan enjoys watching Netflix, playing hockey and rugby, and travelling with his family. Jordan is excited to acquaint himself with all of the delegates of VMUN 2020 and wishes all participants the best of luck.
