The host school for a session is chosen by the Membership Committee two years prior to that session. Students from the host school serve as members of the Upper-Secretariat (including the Secretary-General and Under-Secretary General), as well as the committee chairs and World Press Editor (chairpersons may also be chosen from other interested member schools at the behest of the host school). Guided by the Governing Documents, the Secretariat determines the theme, sets the agenda, and selects the bodies to be convened. The Secretariat also oversees the writing of issues books for use by conference delegates to prepare for the annual session.
