A Letter from the Secretary-General

Dear Prospective Delegates and Advisors,

My name is Ann Balzer and I am excited to serve as the Secretary-General for Cornell Model  United Nations Conference 2019. Cornell Model United Nations Conference (CMUNC) is an amazing opportunity for high school students to address pressing current issues through  research, debate, and teamwork. In order to provide a fulfilling experience for all conference  attendees, we promote the development of transferrable professional and academic skills and  welcome delegate and advisor feedback.

Please join us on Cornell University’s beautiful campus in Ithaca, New York from April 11-14,  2019. Our Secretariat and dedicated staff have been eagerly preparing for your arrival since the conclusion of CMUNC 2018. We hope to provide you with a rewarding conference experience.

I would like to give a special welcome to new delegates and delegations. In keeping with  CMUNC’s mission as a learning conference, we strive to create a welcoming and inclusive  environment for delegates with all levels of experience. Please do not hesitate to contact me  with any questions or concerns that may arise as you prepare for our conference.

To those of you whom we have hosted before, thank you. Your support and feedback are  invaluable to CMUNC. We are committed to constantly improving our conference, especially in  response to your ideas. We hope that your time at CMUNC 2019 is outstanding!

CMUNC will give you the opportunity to challenge yourselves intellectually, cooperate with  your peers, and better understand some of the world’s most pressing concerns. It is our wish  that this conference will encourage your interest in international affairs and provide you with  academic, social, and professional skills which you will bring home with you and use with  confidence for years to come. Thank you for your interest in CMUNC. I cannot wait to welcome  you all to Ithaca and Cornell in April!
