Dear delegates,

Welcome to Harvard Model Congress Dubai 2017, and more importantly, welcome to the African Union!

As a member of the African Union, you have been given immense responsibility. The African Union is a continental union of over 50 African nations. As a group, the African Union seeks to obtain social and economic advances, as well as bringing more unity to the group. Working in an area of the world that is ripe for development and progress, the African Union has much good work to be done at Harvard Model Congress Dubai 2017.

Since I have not yet introduced myself, my name is Michael Geisler, and I am beyond excited to be your chair. Having grown up all around the Midwestern United States (Indiana, Iowa, and Ohio), I like to think of myself as being one with the Midwest. A junior at Harvard, I study history with a secondary in economics. Outside of Model Congress, I enjoy watching football and reading for fun.

If you have any questions, whether about the topics, conference, or anything else, please feel free to reach out to me at any time!

Cheers,

Michael Geisler
