As some of you may have noticed already, we now publish a lot more content on a weekly basis including more articles on strategies and tips as well as better coverage of conferences worldwide.

In addition, the Marketing Associates team is entirely made up of alumni from our Model UN Summer Programs and will be helping us promote this fun and educational opportunity to those who want to improve in Model UN. Learn more about the Summer Programs here!
