VICS is delighted to offer the Directors General’s Good Offices as an ad-hoc-committee for the second year in a row! The DGGO serves as another way for experienced delegates to be pushed to their limits as they deal with challenging and innovative issues. The delegates who participate will not be given any information regarding the topic of committee or the nature of the committee itself until shortly before the conference. This committee will be fast moving and require adaptability to a variety of situations that may occur. Being ready for anything will be vital and will help create a fun and challenging environment for both the delegates and and the dais.
