Dear esteemed delegates and advisors,
On behalf of our secretariat, staff, and all members of the Columbia International Relations Council & Association (CIRCA), we are honored to welcome you to the fourteenth edition of Columbia Model United Nations in New York (CMUNNY). This year’s conference will be held at Columbia University’s campus in Manhattan, from Thursday, September 26, through Sunday, September 29, 2019.
Since its inception, CMUNNY has been known for dynamic, engaging, and high-quality committees that reflect the spirit of diplomacy and cultural exchange inherent in our city -- allowing our conference to be the premier crisis conference of the North American circuit. This year, CMUNNY XIV will bring over 400 delegates together to our historic campus, spread out across 20 committees diverse in their time periods, geographical reach, and style, and assisted by our dedicated and experienced staffers of a 1:4 staff-to-delegate ratio. We hope our delegates will get to extend their experience beyond the committee room and explore everything our wonderful city has to offer, including our Delegate Social at Hudson Terrace in downtown New York City.
Continuing our tireless effort for innovation, we have further diversified our committees this year to ensure a fruitful and enjoyable experience for delegates with all areas of interests. With a wide range of committees spanning from an Ancient Egyptian Council of 1351 B.C. to a futuristic Interplanetary Council of Affairs set in 2300 A.D., from Romeo and Juliet’s city of Verona to an investigative committee in search of one of the most infamous criminals in history, and from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to Amazon’s second headquarters, we hope to motivate and empower delegates to engage in various global issues of diverse subject matters.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns, and we look forward to welcoming you to the fourteenth session of CMUNNY in the fall!
