A Welcome from the HMUN China 2014 Secretary-General

June 30th, 2013

A Welcome from the Secretary-General


Dear Delegates, Faculty Advisors, Delegations, and Guests:

It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you and your delegation to Harvard Model United Nations China 2014! We are thrilled to announce that our Fifth Session of HMUN China will take place from Thursday, March 20 to Sunday, March 23 in Beijing, China. The conference venue is tentatively set at the Beijing International Convention Center (BICC), and registration has currently opened.

For 60 years, HMUN has brought together high school students from across the globe to discuss the most pressing and significant issues of the international community. Each year, delegates research, debate, negotiate, and work together to draft resolutions to solve many of society’s most complex issues, while building skills in public speaking, writing, and teamwork. In 2010, this HMUN model was brought to the international stage, and through a partnership with WELAND International, HMUN brought 12 directors to Beijing for the first time. Four years later, we are incredibly excited to be returning to China’s capital once again next March.

This year, we have again selected 16 of our strongest directors from HMUN Boston and HNMUN, our college-based sister conference, all of whom are thrilled to lead delegates through four days of committee session. With our staff size, we offer an intimacy and impact value unique to HMUN China, while still maintaining the substantive excellence and diversity found at our Boston conferences. For HMUN China 2014, we will continue to offer an exciting array of committees, ranging from the larger, more traditional General Assemblies, to the mid-sized and diverse Economic and Social Councils and Regional Bodies, to the smaller, fast-paced crisis committees within the Specialized Agencies. Interested delegates can once again experience a unique entry into debate be becoming involved in our Non-Governmental Organizations and Press Corps programs via our Specialized Application process.

Each committee is led by one of our most experienced directors, ensuring that debate is dynamic, informative and stimulating. In addition, directors spend much time and effort to get to know delegates and act as mentors, such as through leading discussions on their favorite topics in the Director’s panels, planning informal out-of-committee gatherings or chatting with delegates at the culturally simulating Global Village. To top it off, all of this occurs in the amazing city of Beijing, with its unique juxtaposition of old history and culture, and modern globalization and beauty, which we encourage all HMUN China attendees to explore and dive into.

As an additional note, this year will be a critical half-decade milestone for HMUN China, and we are hoping to increase delegate training resources both pre-conference and at-conference, provide faculty-advisor resources and guides, and organize out-of committee cultural speaker events. I urge you to also take a look at the very exciting committee selection we have this year, which range from the traditional to more novel topics.

On behalf of the HMUN China staff and our co-hosting partner, WEMUN, we cordially invite you and your school delegation to join us in Beijing for HMUN China 2014!

Sincerely,

Charlotte Lee

Secretary-General
