RMC Debate and International Affair Society (DIAS)
The RMC Debate and International Affair Society (DIAS) sent 25 officer cadets to the Queen’s Model United Nations Invitational (QMUNi) from November 14th to November 17th.
Celebrating its fifth iteration this year, QMUNi has become one of Canada’s top Model UN conferences, drawing over 300 delegates to Kingston for a unique weekend to discuss, debate, collaborate, and resolve contentious issues. Attending the conference allowed the RMC delegates the opportunity to practice parliamentary procedure while negotiating solutions to the world’s most pressing issues, and to think critically on international topics, which are critical skills required of the leaders of tomorrow.
The RMC cadets were honoured to work alongside students from many universities from Canada and the United States and to represent the college at this acclaimed conference.
The group also won several awards: 29145 OCdt Timon, 28140 OCdt Young, 28962 NCdt Boswell, and 28241 NCdt Robinson received Verbal Commendations from the Chairs of their respective committees, while 28487 OCdt Tsekrekos received the Honourable Mention (3rd Place) for his performance.
RMC DIAS would like to thank the Foundation for its support of the club’s endeavours and for providing the Officer Cadets with the opportunity to pursue their interests in international affairs in a competitive atmosphere.
