Dear Delegates, Parents, and Advisors,
All American Model United Nations is excited to announce that the Fourth Annual All-American Model UN Invitational will be held on January 12, 2019, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Our one-day conference serves as a practice ground for teams and individual delegates to test different techniques and hone their MUN skills in preparation for larger conferences.
The Invitational borrows committees from conferences such as NAIMUN, HMUN, ILMUNC, and others with the aim to train delegates to become better speakers, writers, and leaders. While this conference will be competitive and awards will be given, its true goal is to train. Throughout the experience, our skilled staff will be there to give you specific and individualized advice, feedback, and tips on how to improve your skills.
At All-American Model UN, we believe that everyone has the capability to find success in Model UN, you just need to find your voice. This year we will have seven custom committees that will expand upon and improve the experience we have offered in previous years. Whether you’re a beginner looking to learn what MUN is all about, or a seasoned veteran, the Invitational has something to offer you. This year, every student who participates will receive a grant for any All-American Model UN program, with larger amounts being awards to those who win Best, Outstanding, and Honorable.
On a personal note, the All American Invitational is extremely important to me as I believe it is representative of my journey from mediocrity to success in Model United Nations. I began my journey with All-American with one gavel, a few honorable mentions, and many misconceptions about how MUN should be approached. I was a seasoned speaker and writer, but I had no idea how to command a room or become the leader of a large bloc. Luckily, I was accepted onto the team the summer before my junior year and traveled to Beijing, China and Hyderabad, India with Frank and the team. I was the most inexperienced member of the team by leagues; however, I was determined to learn and rise to the level of the rest of my All-American peers. With the encouragement and advice of my older teammates, I was made into the accomplished delegate I am today.
Even if you never plan to travel with the All-American team, you can learn more from our alumni staff than you could ever dream possible. Being a part of an All-American sponsored conference and learning from those of us with years of competitive experience will help you become a better, stronger presence both inside and outside of committee. On behalf of the All American Invitational, we are extremely excited to see what this year’s conference has to bring and we hope to see you there!
Looking forward to January,
