Delegates of press will be assigned a newspaper agency and they will make articles about what is happening at AYMUN 2017. Delegates will engage themselves with various committee topics, by interviewing other delegates and faculty advisers, by writing press releases. Press communicates with other committees but does not take participation in the process of debating itself. By attending different committees the members of Press take on the role of a global journalistic body as they report on the discussions that take place during the conference. Moreover, the Press will use available innovative media outlets, such as Facebook to hold Press Conferences in different committee rooms.
