United States Congress Committee

Welcome to the United States Congress of THAIMUN XI! My name is Suniti Sudkungwan, also known as Pong (he/him), and I am a junior from Triam Udom Suksa. I will be serving as your front room chair, taking on the role of Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA).
I have participated in a total of 11 conferences, delegating in 6 and chairing in 5. Following the exceptional MUN experience I had in last year's USCC, I am committed to ensuring that everyone has the same enriching experience this year.
USCC stands out as one of the most intriguing committees in the MUN circuit. Here, you will represent members of Congress in the legislative body of the United States, rather than delegates of specific countries. This unique setting provides you with the opportunity to delve into the intricacies of US politics and address some of the most divisive issues challenging the founding principles of the United States.
Now that we've covered the basics, your powers as members of Congress, expressed through directives, are nearly unlimited. Whether you're collaborating with senators from across the aisle to create a new political party or investigating matters concerning China, the possibilities are extensive. However, I urge you to tread lightly, as the consequences of your actions may come back to haunt you.
If you have any inquiries regarding the committee, the Rules of Procedure (ROP), or the chair report, please feel free to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out on my Instagram @pongppx. I am always (mostly) available, even if you simply want to engage in conversation.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the conference!
Hello future members of the U.S. House of Representatives! My name is Hwandong Hyun (he/him), and I am currently a junior studying the IBDP at KIS International School. By the time of this conference, this will be my eleventh conference and the second time chairing.
As your hybrid backroom chair for the USCC committee, I am honored to help preside over the discussions that will shape the course of the one and only United States! I am extremely excited to support and engage with what awaits us within the U.S. Congress, as personally, I find the USCC one of the most interesting yet intricate committees.
The rules of procedures of this unique committee might be confusing at first, but don’t worry! As your chairs, Pong, Diane, and I will ensure everyone gets the best out of this conference; whether that may be honing your debating skills, diplomatic skills, or just forging new connections that extend far beyond the committee room (I promise, we three trios have great chemistry together!).
Apart from MUN, I also enjoy a variety of things, whether that be volleyball, art, golf, traveling, photography, or just struggling with my IB subjects (for my HLs; Math AA, Physics, and Visual Arts). Anyways, if you have any questions or concerns about anything, or just to socialize really, please feel free to contact me through Instagram (@ghksehd.hwandong) or email (email@example.com).
See you soon!
Hello USCC delegates! My name is Diane Seyeon Lee, who will be serving you as a frontroom chair. USCC and ThaiMUN have always had a special place in my heart since last year (my first ThaiMUN!) and I am overjoyed to participate again, co-chairing with two of my fellow ex-democrat delegates (now chairs). As a current Sophomore from Branksome Hall Asia, I started MUNing since 7th grade, marking this ThaiMUN as my 20th MUN conference. As you can probably tell from the number of conferences I’ve participated in, I am simply addicted to MUN (or at least that’s what my friends say:) ) My other ‘addictions’ outside of MUN include listening to music (a LOT of genres - please don’t ask me what my favorite genre is), meeting new people to socialize with, and of course, my amazingly cute cat, Gamja. I will be more than happy to show you millions of photos of her if you ask me to ;) If you have any questions regarding the committee or just want to reach out, feel free to contact me through my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or my instagram (@dianeslee). See you at the conference!
