Secretary-General's Welcome

Dear Delegates, Faculty Advisors, and members of the EmpireMUNC community, 

It is my honor and pleasure to invite you to the fifth annual Empire Model United Nations Conference. Hosted from November 15 to November 18, 2018 on New York University’s Manhattan campus, EmpireMUNC V is sure to be our most dynamic and stimulating conference to date. 

EmpireMUNC strives to deliver the best conference experience possible. With integrated feedback and lessons from the previous years, we are working tirelessly to foster an engaging and open forum for the next generation of leaders in international affairs. Our conference will feature committees for every type of delegate, from larger GAs and Specialized Committees to EmpireMUNC’s signature General Crisis and Joint Crisis Committees. EmpireMUNC V’s unique mesh of topics will include current international affairs and recurring global issues spanning universes real, fictional, and dystopian spread out across past, present, and future. 

With NYU ranking top 5 on the US Model UN Collegiate Circuit, EmpireMUNC will be staffed by some of the most experienced students the collegiate circuit has to offer. EmpireMUNC V will serve as an opportunity for high school students to compete in New York City and experience an extremely exciting and rigorous weekend of debate, diplomacy, and cooperation. Our Staff will be working hard through November 2018 to ensure that you have a rewarding delegate experience, both substantively and socially.

We also believe that there should be more to EmpireMUNC than just Model UN. We are planning to partner up with local New York City charity organizations which we will be fundraising for throughout the conference. Furthermore, we hope to make EmpireMUNC V a conference to remember for delegates, advisors and staffers alike through our EmpireMUNC V merchandise, in-action photographs, and publications of Resolutions and Directives. We also hope to provide a platform for students to learn more about the college environment through interactions with our staffers. From workshops led by our very own staffers to our revamped Delegate Dance, EmpireMUNC V will educate, engage, and enthrall delegates in the City that Never Sleeps. 

On behalf of the entire Directorate and staff of the conference, I look forward to welcoming you in person at EmpireMUNC V!
