Updates and Info: MUN League Draft and Other Wonderful Things

Hello delegates! I hope you are all enjoying your spring break and living life to the fullest (even if that means sleeping away life to the fullest). Seeing as we didn’t have any meetings after IIMUN, I’ll be using this update to send out some crucial information about upcoming meetings and events.

If you have been monitoring the reminds, most of this information is not exactly new, BUT it is still important…

  1. Due to issues with advisor availability, we will be conducting secretariat interviews after spring break. The interviews will be spread out over two Fridays and interview times will fall between 3:30 and 5:30. The spreadsheet with confirmed dates and times will be posted soon. Signing up is based on a first-come, first-serve policy and will be available for access from the website.
  2. Whitney MUN has been delayed by a week. This also affects position paper deadlines so keep posted for more information.
  3. On the topic of more info, our next meeting will be April 21st, the Friday we get back from break. We will be discussing in further detail everything mentioned above and conducting a more formal IIMUN VII debrief.

For all our lucky hopefuls, good luck on draft day! Enjoy your spring break and we’ll see you soon. For now, ciao.

MUN Reminders for the Week

Good evening delegates, it is Varsha, your Co-Secretary General! I hope you all have been having a wonderful week so far. Here are our top five reminders for the week that we highly encourage you to consider:

  1. Pay the $10 donations on the student store! We need all the support we can get in order to provide the best possible experience for everyone in MUN.
  2. Check out the student store tonight to pay for Capo positions. CVHS MUN is an intermediate conference and all delegates pay $30 to attend; this covers the cost for you as an individual, the school fee, and lunch. Remember that positions are first paid, first served.
  3. Remember to work on Tustin MUN position papers. They are due on November 4th at 11:59 pm. If you do not submit a position paper, you will be ineligible for BOTH Outstanding AND Best Delegate!
  4. If you are new to MUN, don’t forget to review the MUN 101 presentations located under the Delegate Information tab.
  5. Come to our Friday meeting tomorrow at 3:3o pm in Mrs. Brothwell’s room! We are super excited to see you there!!!

Reminders for the Final Stretch

Dear Delegates,

With IIMUN VI on Saturday of this week, it is important to brush up on some important rules and reminders. First, all position papers must be graded and finalized by Friday @ 3:30 pm. Our secretariat, including myself, will be checking with each committee @ RSM  Intermediate and personally checking you off. Remember, if your position papers have not been graded, and no notification has been made explaining the emergency situation in which you are unable to complete the task, consequences will be handed out. This a very serious deadline. We would also greatly appreciate it if you could have research awardees finalized.

Please remember that you can only be on the RSM Intermediate campus after 3:30. We will be outside to direct you to the rooms in case you are unfamiliar with the campus and we WILL be taking attendance. Dais members, please bring laptops, chargers, and gavels if you have them. Final adjustments, tips, preparations, etc. will be made on Friday as well.

Congratulations to everyone working towards making this event possible. On behalf of the entire secretariat, thank you to everyone who has turned in a parent letter and we are so excited to see you all on Friday!

Rotary Club Contest Update

Hello delegates! Mr. Spangler has recently gotten back to me on some important updates about the speech competition held by the Rotary Club. THIS Thursday at lunch there will be an informational meeting held in room 536, Mr. Spangler’s classroom. The theme for this year’s competition is “Be a Gift to the World.” The competition will be held in April and there will also be a preliminary competition for all those interested in representing our school in the contest. There are limited spots, but let’s show what Trabuco Hills High School MUN can do! Hope to see you all on Thursday.
