Dear honorable delegates and advisors,
I am so pleased to extend you a welcome to MidSouth Model United Nations! Held for thirty-nine years now, MSMUN is a tradition that we look forward to every February. Listening to world-class delegates debate global issues on our small campus gives me so much hope for the future of our world leaders. This year, I hope we can yet again facilitate an environment for each and every one of you to share ideas and feel heard.
As you’re on our website homepage, go ahead and browse through all the committees we are operating at MSMUN39. I am so proud of the team we have assembled and the debate they will be leading. There are a few pinned pages for your reference that include Conference Info and Registration Information. These pages are also accessible via the sidebar menu.
As you move into registration, I hope you will find we have ironed out the kinks from last year’s changes. As the Advisor or Head Delegate, you will be able to disseminate the link directly to your students after registration of your school, rather than an open Registration. Please, though, do note that you must register your school in order that MSMUN has estimated headcounts for Dining Services and campus room reservations.
When registering, though, it is important to note that first-year MUN delegates are more than welcome to join any GA committee they choose but are ineligible to participate in Crisis Committees. Before beginning registration, please look through this year’s committees to see what interests you, learn more about our chairs, and read through the background guides on which they worked so tirelessly.
Please see the calendar below for important dates regarding MSMUN39. If you have any questions before the conference, please feel free to reach out to a member of the Secretariat at MSMUN@rhodes.edu. If you are looking for the 2020 MSMUN welcome packet, a link will be available soon!
Be sure to follow us on social media for updates and helpful hints regarding our conference. If you post about MSMUN39, make sure to use the hashtag, #MSMUN38.
Sara Taylor, Secretary General, and the entire MSMUN 2020 Secretariat
