Transitions
 
Well, May has come, and with it a time of transition and change, new possibilities, and new responsibilities. I've started talking one-on-one with chapter presidents and the responses on their chapter status and needs are interesting.

New workshop added to student track at IIE Annual Conference
 
Leadership Workshop
 - Model of the United Nations
A Model of the United Nations (MUN) is a simulation of a session inside the United Nations. This means that the students that take part in the Model are representing the different countries that are members of the U.N. as if they were U.N. Delegates for these countries. In the model, these students take part in a debate and make proposals to solve the different situations presented to them.
