• Greetings from the Secretaries-General of Session XXIV •
Dear Honorable Delegates, Advisors, and Guests,
On behalf of the entire staff, it is our pleasure to welcome you to Session XXIV of the Johns Hopkins University Model United Nations Conference. JHUMUNC XXIV will take place from Thursday, February 4th to Sunday, February 7th, 2020. Our dedicated staff promise to provide you with an incredible international relations experience as you debate a wide range of topics in one of our thirty-one high-caliber committees. You will have the opportunity to take part in boardrooms, commissions, councils, courts, organizations, unions, and more. Each committee aims to focus on a different time period, world region, or stretch the imagination to fictional universes. We hope that throughout the weekend you take advantage of our unique committee offerings, as well as our other conference events.
In assuming the role of a diplomat for four days, delegates will have the opportunity to understand the complexities of international affairs. Delegates will often find that easy solutions can be elusive and will come to appreciate that only difficult compromises and extensive diplomacy will engender progress. We wish our delegates the best of luck and congratulate them for taking on this task as they begin their JHUMUNC experience. As Secretaries-General, we are excited to usher in a new era for JHUMUNC and will continue to prioritize the delegate experience and the educational component of the conference. Outside the committee room, we will strive to push the delegates to build friendships and establish lasting connections.
As we are in unprecedented times, JHUMUNC and the Johns Hopkins University are working together in order to deliver a conference modality that maximizes the epidemiological safety of all our attendees. We are in ongoing talks in order to augment the conference in such a way as to preserve the traditional delegate experience while also balancing concerns about SARS-CoV-2, or Covid-19. Thusly, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask a member of the JHUMUNC School Relations team at firstname.lastname@example.org; they are available to address any concerns you may have. We look forward to meeting all of you in February!
Howard S. Senior
