This is the final week of conferences for 2010. There are four high school conferences this weekend split between the Midwest and California:
Chicago International Model United Nations (CIMUN)
The Chicago International Model United Nations conference will take place this weekend in Chicago, Illinois. Hosted by the Model United Nations Development Organization (MUNDO), this year’s conference includes 18 present-day and historical committees including six of their highly-popular crisis cabinet simulations: present-day USA and China cabinets as well as historical USA, Soviet Union, Israel, and United Arab Republic cabinets. All historical committees begin on May 16, 1967, so delegates can anticipate a potential joint crisis with the cabinets, even if they are in the historical GA or Security Council. Present-day committee highlights include both the G8 and G77. The conference is led by Secretary-General Nicole Wilsey from DePaul University and will again feature a diverse staff of 80 volunteers from many colleges throughout the country, with 22% of them being current or former Secretaries-General and Presidents of their clubs.
Great Lakes Invitational Model United Nations (GLIMUN)
The Great Lakes Invitational Conference Association will be hosting its flagship conference, GLIMUN, in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The conference lineup includes seven traditional UN committees plus plenary sessions when the General Assembly committees get together and the ECOSOC committees do the same. The Secretary-General is Jeff Sugalski.
High Tech High Model United Nations (HTHMUN)
San Diego upstart High Tech High School will be hosting its HTHMUN conference this weekend in San Diego, California. Twenty-two high schools are expected to participate in fifteen traditional UN committees. Molly Uyeda and Rishika Daryanani will be leading the conference as co-Secretaries-General.
Capistrano Valley High School Model United Nations (CVHSMUN)
Capistrano Valley High School will be hosting its conference this weekend in Mission Viejo, California. The committee lineup is divided between five novice-only committees and six advanced committees. The Secretary-General is Tina Krunic.
