McGill Model United Nations Assembly

 

One of the most popular conferences of our season, McMUN is always an event that our team is excited to attend. Close for travel, McMUN is a convenient option for those who want to compete at a high level without the price of an International Circuit conference. One of the largest conferences of the year, McMUN is known well for its post-committee social events, which are said to be some of the best in North America. They are also known for their unique and often non-traditional committee line up. Carleton has a been taking top honors at McMUN for many years, placing as the top Canadian team two years in a row, and it’s an honor we’re looking to repeat. If you can brave the January cold and are looking for a weekend of both intense work and play, this is the conference for you.

The Super-Bowl of the Model UN world, Harvard’s annual conference attracts over 3,000 delegates from every corner of the globe each year, making it one of the most competitive conferences we attend.

If you are a delegate looking for the ultimate competitive conference to attend this season, HNMUN is likely for you.

Canadian International Model United Nations

 

CANIMUN is one of the most unique conferences on our roster and is perfect for brand new delegates, or those looking to build their skills. Run by the United Nations Association in Canada, CANIMUN’s committees are strictly UN bodies and focus heavily on proper procedure, research and resolution writing. It’s small committee sizes provide a slower paced venue with a less competitive atmosphere than most of the conferences we attend, making it the perfect place to jump start your MUN career. There is also a fabulous International Press Forum that is a big draw for students interested in Journalism or Communications. The Ottawa location makes this conference a very inexpensive option for those on a tight budget and we will also have many executive members in attendance to help new delegates with questions.

RMCMUN, hosted by Canada’s flagship military education institution, boasts not only a unique, security-driven conference, but also defence related programming such as military displays and weapons training. Delegate fees include the cost of food and on-campus accommodation, as well as the socials and programming.
