Letter from the Secretary General

I am honored to welcome you to the 22nd annual Washington Area Model United Nations Conference in Washington, D.C. hosted by the George Washington University and the International Affairs Society.


As we have seen from recent current events, empowering the next generation of leaders is now imperative to the future of our world. At WAMUNC, we give these future leaders the skills to become better speakers, debaters, leaders, and most importantly, listeners. Our four-day simulation will leave delegates with a lifetime of skills.


For 22 years, WAMUNC’s location has provided high school students with unparalleled access to the world’s leading experts in international affairs. We don’t just simulate the world of international affairs -- we put you directly in it. Our past excursions have taken students inside the Ugandan Embassy, the Atlantic Council, Human Rights Watch, and the elusive National Counterterrorism Council. At WAMUNC, we pride ourselves on our ability to bring MUN topics to life through these excursions and discussions with D.C.’s most highly regarded policy experts in committees.


In the committee rooms, you will find Chairs passionate about providing an educational experience like no other. These Staffers are well-versed in international affairs through both their studies at GW and internships in the State Department, Congress, and Homeland Security. Coming from an award-winning Model UN team, our staff is eager to help your delegates learn the ropes of MUN while sharing their extensive international affairs knowledge.


Since eighth grade, MUN has been an integral part of my life. Through Model UN in high school I visited The Hague, Netherlands and Doha, Qatar to meet and learn from students from around the world. Model UN has also led me to major in International Affairs at GW! At WAMUNC, my staff and I are working to help you find your passion too -- whether it be in science, human rights, economics, or history, one of our committees will let delegates explore a topic of they love to debate (or one they didn’t know they cared about).


Don’t miss out on this unique educational opportunity that will give you unparalleled access to Washington, D.C. all while helping you become a more engaged student and leader. I invite you to register today at WAMUNC.com.


I look forward to welcoming you to Washington, D.C. in April for WAMUNC XXII!
