FIMUN XXXI

Letter from the Secretary-General

Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,

On behalf of the Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs, FIU Model United Nations Collegiate team, and the Conference Secretariat, it is my deepest pleasure to welcome you to the 31st iteration of the Florida International Model United Nations Conference. For the past thirty one years, FIMUN has endeavored to provide the premier experience to the most competitive and brightest high school and middle school delegates in the South Florida Area. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank our delegates and faculty advisors for being part of our story over the past years as well continuing to grant us the opportunity of proving our commitment to providing a conference experience of unmatched rigor and excellence. We would be honored to host your delegation for FIMUN 31 at FIU’s Modesto Madique Campus from March 22nd to March 24, 2019.

As with every year, our Secretariat is constantly eager to raise the bar for a thoroughly academic and thrilling in-room experience that will challenge our delegates throughout the weekend.  FIMUN 31 will feature twelve distinct committees; three Large General Assembly (GA) committees, three Mid-Size Hybrid and Specialized Committees, and six Crisis Committees. This year, we chose to tailor our crisis committees to include more fast-paced and intense crisis elements than ever before and also expanded our large committees to cater substantive debate and meaningful delegation on crucial contemporary issues. With committees run by dais from one of the top collegiate MUN teams, delegates can be assured that they will witness exceptional committee dynamics throughout the weekend, regardless of which committee they choose to be part of.

Outside of committee, delegates will also have opportunities to participate in social events throughout the conference and network with their peers from schools all over. To teams that are travelling to South Florida, I would like to welcome you to Miami and trust that you will truly enjoy your time at FIMUN and in Miami.

Cheers to FIMUN 31! I couldn’t be more excited to host all of you in March!

Best,

Shebin George

Secretary-General
