Munapest 2019 has changed the hierarchy system of how individual Presidencies will look during the conference. A chamber will have, according to this, one President, one Chair and one Director with the President being in charge of the chamber and being responsible for the work of the chamber itself. Chairs and Directors will not have to contribute to any tasks prior to the conference except for the attendance of one online workshop which is aimed at training their skills and knowledge related to the position they have been accepted to. They will also receive access to all documents they need for their preparations and their Presidents will help their preparation in any way necessary. The Presidencies as a whole should strive for complementing rather than contradicting each other.
Who is the Chair?
The Chair is the coordinator of the Chamber; one who confidently guides the delegates through debates, one who moderates the discussion perfectly, one to answer all their procedure-related questions. The Chairs’ responsibility is to manage the Chamber’s meetings so that they can operate smoothly.

Who is the Director?
The Director is a ‘super-delegate’; one who ensures that the content of the debate remains productive and professional. The Director should at all times be available and willing to give advice to individual delegates or the chamber as a whole if called upon or if the Director deems so. They also have to ensure that the Chamber produces a result acceptable to all, or at least, an overwhelming majority of the delegates, without showing preference towards any delegate or their preferred outcome.
