Estados Latinoamericanos
y Caribeños

Chinese Involvement in Latin America and the Caribbean


Founded in 2011 as the successor to the Rio Group, el Comunidad de Estados Latinoamericanos y Caribeños (CELAC) serves to link 33 Latin American states. It works to promote regional stability in the Western Hemisphere through increased integration and dialogue between member nations and other intergovernmental bodies. While discussing a wide range of issues, CELAC chiefly focuses on nuclear disarmament, the environment, social development, and finance. The primary goal of CELAC is to preserve the strength and power of Latin American and Caribbean states in an increasingly modern world.

Committee Staff

Portrait of Van Monday

Van Monday


Van Monday is a rising senior at Tesla STEM High School. This is his second year participating in MUN and his second time staffing. Outside of MUN, Van plays soccer for both Greater Seattle Surf and Juanita High School, and he enjoys getting overly obsessed with specific things and forcing his friends to listen to him talk extensively about said things. In addition, he spends far too much time stressing over college applications. Van is very excited to give delegates an engaging and educational experience in the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) at EDUMUN 2019.

Marko Morrison


Marko is an incoming junior who attends the International Community School. He is excited and enthusiastic for his first staffing experience in the MUN circuit, so please go easy on him. In the little free time that he has, Marko enjoys playing guitar, cooking, and fishing down near Auburn. Don't be intimidated by his height - he's been a delegate at 6 different conferences, so he feels confident in producing a productive environment alongside Van and Maya. Marko is very eager to meet the delegates and provide a great experience for delegates and staff alike.

Assistant Director

Maya Dallman is a rising sophomore at Juanita High School and is thrilled to be staffing for the first time at EDUMUN 2019! Maya has participated in MUN since REDMUN in 8th grade and has loved it ever since. When she isn’t stressing over her four honors classes, Maya can be found trying not to drown on one of her three swim teams, reading a good book or taking Instagram photos for her sister. Maya is very excited to meet the delegates and hopes to bring an educational and fun experience to the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) 2019.
