Dear Delegates,

I am very excited to welcome you all to the ECOFIN at ILMUNC 36! My name is Alexandra Fiol-Mahon, and it is my pleasure to act as your Chair and be a part of a committee that is sure to be filled with intriguing issues, thought-provoking discussion, and smart solutions.

I am a Senior studying Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Penn. Originally from Puerto Rico, I have lived in a small suburb just outside the city of Philadelphia for just about my entire life and have loved getting to know downtown Philadelphia during my time at Penn. As a member of the International Affairs Association (IAA) at Penn, I spent two years on the ILMUNC secretariat planning the high school version of this conference and have been staffing and chairing both UPMUNC and ILMUNC since my freshman year of college. Outside of the IAA, I like to play tennis, consume excessive amounts of coffee, and spend time with friends.

From experience, I know just how hard the ILMUNC secretariat has been working on making ILMUNC 36 our best conference yet, and I cannot wait to see all of their efforts come to fruition during conference weekend. I’m looking forward to the incredible ideas that you will form and discuss in committee, and I will see all of you in January!

Sincerely,

Alexandra Fiol-Mahon

Chair of ECOFIN
The 36th Ivy League Model United Nations Conference

Dear Delegates,

Welcome to the Economic and Financial Committee at ILMUNC 36! My name is Liam Cook and I will serve as your Moderator throughout the four days of debate. I am very excited to meet you all and I can’t wait to see what kind of spirited, thought-provoking, and collaborative ideas you all come up with. Let’s make this ILMUNC the best one yet!

Now, a little bit about myself. I was bored and raised in Los Angeles in the South Bay in a town called Manhattan Beach. This will be my sixth year as a Model UN delegate and second-year staffing ILMUNC. Besides my love for model un, I enjoy playing water polo, going to the beach, and binge watching tv series.

This year, the secretariat and the dais have worked together to select compelling topics as the committee’s agenda. Topic A: Combatting Brain Drain and Topic B: Increasing the Availability of Financial Services in Developing Nations are two very interesting topics with a wide range of complexities and subtopics. As ECOFIN, I am excited to see the economic and financial solutions proposed by all of you!

If you have any questions, concerns, or anything please do not hesitate to reach out to our USG, Alexandra, Zoey, or me. I am beyond excited to meet you all at ILMUNC 36!


Sincerely,

Liam Cook
