by KFC on February 14, 2011

There is a solid set of high school MUN conferences this weekend headlined by Georgetown’s NAIMUN. Duke will be hosting DUMUNC while out in California we have UCSB’s GauchoMUN and Los Alamitos High School’s LAHSMUN taking place.

Best Delegate will be liveblogging at NAIMUN! We know a few schools are already in town touring DC. We hope to interview you this weekend to learn more about your adventures at NAIMUN and in the nation’s capitol!

Georgetown’s North American Invitational Model United Nations (NAIMUN)

Georgetown will be hosting its 48th annual NAIMUN conference next weekend in Washington, D.C. Nearly 3,000 students from around the world are expected to participate in a circuit-high 38 committees, making this one of the largest and most prestigious high school MUN conferences in the world.

NAIMUN complements its conference and utilizes its location in Washington DC well with a plethora of out-of-conference programming, including: embassy briefings, speakers, Georgetown tours, a community service project, and the Hilltop Madness and Delegate Dance social activities. In addition, NAIMUN’s philanthropy initiative this year will benefit Free the Children.

Secretary-General is Jagmeet Singh and Executive Director is Kelsie Wilhelm will be leading a staff of over 200 Georgetown students.

    Just wanted to note a small correction: Johns Hopkins actually had two amazing Secretaries-General, the second being Harry Black.
