IECMUN 2018

Honorable Head Delegates and Advisors:

Riverside Community College District Model UN is proud to announce its 13th annual Inland Empire Conference – Model United Nations (IECMUN)! The Conference will be held on Saturday, February 3rd, 2018. This conference will be a great experience for many students new to Model UN and for those practicing the skills necessary for success in NMUN-New York.

For this conference, we will be simulating three committees, one for high schools and two for colleges (depending on attendance, we may add another committee):

 Committee

Topic

United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) – Colleges Conservation and Restoration of Ecosystems in Urban Areas
Security Council (SC) – Colleges Women, Peace and Security
Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) – High Schools Implementing SDG 7: Ensure Access to Affordable, Reliable, Sustainable and Modern Energy for All

Please register by January 5th if possible, under Registration, and provide us with the number of delegates you intend to bring. Please note that assignments will be distributed on a first-come, first serve basis. When you register please let us know if you have any preferred countries; we will strive to ensure each delegation receives a diverse list of country assignments in addition to meeting your requested countries. Each country will be represented by a single delegate in all committees. Please confirm the final number of delegates you are bringing by January 26th to help us fulfill all final details. We will be sure to send a map, rules, logistics, parking information, and the conference schedule as the conference date approaches and post it here on the website. Background guides on these topics with in-depth explanation and research tips can be found under Committees and Topics. There will be no fee for this conference so that we can have as many students participate as possible. It will run from 8:00am-5:30pm, with an hour provided for lunch, which we will provide, including vegetarian and vegan choices upon request. We will be following National Model UN rules (NMUN rules) with some exceptions, which we will clarify in a follow-up e-mail.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have in regards to IECMUN at iecmun.secgen@gmail.com. Please check the other pages for any more information on the conference, committees, registration and so forth. As always, we strive to provide students with the skills necessary for success in future conferences and to continue our traditions of academic and professional excellence across Southern California. Thank you for your time and interest and we look forward to seeing you and your delegation in February!

Sincerely,

Rachel Lennox
Secretary-General, IECMUN
