Dear Esteemed Advisors and Delegates,
It is with great pleasure that I invite you the 20th session of the Bruin Model United Nations conference! BruinMUN will be held from Saturday, November 17th to Sunday, November 18th, 2012 on the prestigious UCLA campus. Once again, Model United Nations at UCLA welcomes high school students throughout the country and world to participate in a competitive and engaging simulation of United Nations bodies and international organizations. At BruinMUN, students have the opportunity to interact with their peers, discuss global issues, and debate a plethora of contemporary topics, ranging from wild animal trafficking to the Korean War! Through a combination of competitive debate, guest speeches from UCLA faculty, and exciting crisis committees, we are confident that BruinMUN 2012 will be the best yet!
In the spirit of our 20th anniversary, BruinMUN will be offering all new Novice committees, for our delegates just entering into the world of Model United Nations. These committees extend the opportunity for delegates to learn first hand through interactive training and teaching in committee workings, rules, procedure, and debate at a pace designed to facilitate learning and understanding. After participating in one of our novice committees, delegates can expect to be more than ready for what future conferences might throw at them!
This year, the secretariat and staff of BruinMUN 2012 are making a commitment to improve the efficiency of our conference and the expertise of our staff, always holding the delegate’s experience as our number one priority. Delegates can expect a level of competition that will encourage them to be their best, whether they are well seasoned veterans or newcomers to the world of Model United Nations. Our staff and chairs are specifically trained to teach and provide guidance, as well as challenge the delegates to problem solve and to find creative diplomatic solutions. Registration is now open and background guides will be available starting August 1st.
It is my sincere hope that you will join us November 17th-18th, 2012 in a weekend that promises to enrich and fulfill the academic experience of high school students on the beautiful and historic UCLA campus. If you have any questions pertaining to registration or the conference, please contact our Director of External Relations, Joey Donaldson at ExternalDirector@nullbruinmun.org. I look forward to meeting you all this fall!
