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.

IIMUN VII Parent Letters

Every year IIMUN continues to be a success and exceed our expectations due to the tireless supports of our dais, our delegates, and most importantly, our parent volunteers. We cannot stress enough how crucial parent volunteers are to running our conference successfully. With IIMUN VII just around the corner, it’s that time of the year again. The time where we ask our THHS MUN parents for their time and support to help support our home conference once more, for it is only through their hard work that we are able to supply and supervise our conference effectively.

Here are the IIMUN VII Parent Letters: Page 1 and Page 2.

We ask that each THHS MUN delegate fill out at least one parent letter and support our conference in at least one of the two main areas we need aid in: snacks for the conference and conference day volunteering. Of course, we would be delighted if any delegate was able to help in both fields and/or submit multiple letters as again our conference only thrives due to the support we get from all of you.

We ask that IIMUN VII Dais submit their letters by Monday, February 20th, the last day of chair training if possible. If not, we ask that they submit them to a secretariat member through the following week. We would like to collect all parent letters from IIMUN Dais and all other THHS MUN delegates by this Friday, February 24th. Once all letters are collected we will create a matrix and allow parents to choose which snacks they will bring and/or when they will volunteer.

Once again, we would like to thank all of you for supporting our conference each year and allowing IIMUN to grow to the unprecedented size it has reached today. Thank you for all that you have done and we thank you in advance for what we are sure will be a glorious IIMUN VII thanks to your support.

THHS MUN Club Constitution

After a period of deliberation we, as the secretariat and advisors of THHS MUN, have established a club constitution to fully outline all club policies in order to allow all members to have full knowledge of club procedures, policies, and duties, as well as to inspire transparency between all sectors of the club. We will be subjecting the constitution to a popular vote among members at our next meeting on Friday, January 13th, 2017. The constitution can be found on our site on the What is MUN? page under the About tab.

Winter Break

We sincerely hope that everyone is enjoying their winter break and taking the much-needed time to relax and unwind. However, we would like to remind delegates of two important deadlines: Both Position Papers for the Mission Viejo High School Conference (January 14th-15th) and IIMUN Topic Synopses are due by Friday, January 6th.

Mission papers can be turned in to delegates’ respective committee emails found on the MVHS MUN conference site. And IIMUN Topic Synopses can be turned in to the Director of Conferences at conference@thhsmun.org.

Enjoy your break everyone and we’ll see you when we get back!

Mock Conference News

As a reminder our THHS MUN mock conference will be held on Thursday, November 10th in Room 503 from 3:30 to 5:45. We hope to see you all of you there so we can have you all perform in a safe zone and so we can see you in action to give you good, positive feedback and comments. The committee will be UNICEF and the singular topic will be Child Soldiers. The topic synopsis for the committee can be found here.

Additionally, we would like all delegates attending to choose a country for the conference. To choose a country first check out our country matrix for the conference. Then pick your top three countries that have not yet been chosen and email them to dcom@thhsmun.org, soon after one of our amazing Directors of Communications will get back to you confirming which country you have received.

We would like everyone to come prepared with basic knowledge of their country’s stance on the topic and solutions they would support. If you have any questions, feel free to contact any of use on the secretariat. We hope this will be an amazing learning experience for everyone. See you all on Thursday!
