1929 Atlantic City press conference

Agenda: The Prohibition Act 

The Atlantic City Conference is regarded as one of the most crucial meetings of mobsters in  shaping the American Crime Syndicate. Attended by one of the most wanted mobsters, like Al Capone, Salvatore Luciana and many more. The conference was an outcome of the Saint Valentine Massacre that took place in Chicago; the conference aimed to promote more unity among the gangs and prevent similar gang wars from breaking out. The conference  also managed to reduce the criminal activity of the gangs, in order to avoid the gangs from getting exposed.

Committee Director

Devank Agarwalla

My name is Devank Agarwalla and I am a grade 12 student and an avid munner. It is my absolute honour and pleasure to be a part of the executive board for DSMUN 2022. My key goal as an executive board member is to ensure the delegates in my committee are able to learn and truly understand the agendas we will be deliberating upon. Apart from MUNs and academics, I indulge myself in tennis and anything remotely resembling writing from short science fiction stories to well-researched essays. On a typical day, you will find me boring my friends with behavioural economics and why ‘breaking bad’ is the best tv show on Netflix. If you have any questions about this committee or want tv recommendations, feel free to reach out to me at devank.335.2023@doonschool.com.
