• Greetings from the Secretaries-General •
Dear Honorable Delegates, Advisors, and Guests,
On behalf of the entire staff, it is our pleasure to welcome you to Session XXI of the Johns Hopkins University Model United Nations Conference. JHUMUNC XXI will take place from Thursday, February 8th to Sunday, February 11th, 2018 at the beautiful Hilton Baltimore. Our simulations promise to provide you with an incredible international relations experience through debating a wide range of topics in one of our thirty high-caliber committees. You will have the opportunity to take part in boardrooms, commissions, councils, courts, organizations, unions, and more which aim to each focus on a different time period, world region, or stretch the imagination to fictional universes. We hope that throughout the weekend you take advantage of our unique committee offerings, as well as our other conference events.
In assuming the role of a diplomat for four days, delegates will have the opportunity to understand the complexities of international affairs. Frustratingly, they will often find that easy solutions can be elusive and will come to appreciate that only difficult compromises and extensive diplomacy will engender progress. We wish our delegates the best of luck and congratulate them for taking on this task as they begin their JHUMUNC experience. As Secretaries General, we are excited to usher in a new era for JHUMUNC and will continue to prioritize the delegate experience and the educational component of the conference. For us, this means remaining dedicated to the depth of the subject matter in committees that directly relate to international relations theory and practice. Outside the committee room, we will strive to push the delegate to build friendships and establish lasting connections, all while exploring the great Charm City, Baltimore.
Finally, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask a member of the JHUMUNC staff as we are all here to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. We look forward to meeting all of you in February!
