General Secretary Letter

Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,

It is my distinct honor to invite you to the ninetieth session of Earlham College Model United Nations. ECMUN 2014 will be held on Friday, January 31 and Saturday, February 1, 2014 at Earlham College in Richmond, IN. During these 2 days, 300 high school delegates will debate, analyze and propose solutions to vital global issues in a safe, supporting learning environment. Our staff is already hard at work preparing an engaging and memorable experience for both delegates and advisors, and we look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful campus next January!

ECMUN’s conference distinguishes itself from other high school conferences by the international diversity of our Secretariat as well as those who will be chairing ECMUN 2014’s committees. This unique component of ECMUN’s conference will allow the delegates to learn, understand and engage with international issues that are not any longer a story on the news, but have affected the life, family and country of their chair, or a student that will be invited to speak in their committee.

At our ECMUN 2014 conference, we will continue our tradition of offering a varied array of committees, such as a Historical Security Council, UNICEF, and UNHCR. New this year we will be the Fourth Committee of the UN General Assembly that will discuss recent developments related to decolonization and political affairs, as well as UN WOMEN, where delegates will discuss topics related to gender equality and women empowerment.

Registration is now up and will remain open till December 6th, 2013 . You can register on our website, by downloading the registration form and uploading it onto the online application. More information will be available once registration opens. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, and countries will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. We recommend that you register as soon as possible to secure your spot at ECMUN 2014.

ECMUN is an exciting educational opportunity, and I sincerely hope that you will choose to take part in it. If you have any questions leading up to ECMUN, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to working with you in the upcoming months!

“Over the years our high school Model UN Club has competed in many different conferences across the country. The Earlham conference is by far the best. It is well-organized, the college student leaders take time to teach and model the process, the outside speakers are excellent and it is fun. This is the conference my students look forward to all year.” ~Mary Grabianowski, Teacher at Zionsville High School
