Chris Bourdganis is in his second and final year as head delegate, and is one of MSU’s most consistent award-winning delegates. MSU finished last season at 24th in our final rankings.
What are your goals for this year for your team?
Chris: My goals for (MSU)IRO this year are to recruit and retain new members from around Michigan State University while helping our returning members improve in the committee room. We have a myriad of younger team members that are on the brink of success. My primary goal for them this year is to help them excel in committee and emerge as great delegates. Secondly, in terms of shear number of awards our club is in the forefront of the circuit because of our already exceptional veteran members. This year we would like to work with these members in order to help them refine their skills in order to bring home some more heavily weighted awards to Michigan State.
What are you most looking forward to this season?
Chris: This year I am most looking forward to getting to know our newest members. Currently, we have approximately 60 new members joining our ranks. There is no better way to get to know the diverse skill sets and personalities of these new members than partaking in social events and traveling to Model United Nations with them. I honestly cannot wait. While we are a competitive team and love the thrill of competition, we believe it is equally, if not more important to be an energetic, diverse social club as well.
