Maricruz Retana - Secretary-General - SRMUN Charlotte 2017
Distinguished Delegates and Esteemed Advisors,
Since its inception in 1990, SRMUN has been the premier conference in the southeast United States, charged with providing our delegates the best collegiate Model United Nations experience. Our success is attributable in part because of the tasks set forth for our delegates throughout our conferences, including that of working with one another to discuss and mitigate pressing international issues such as but not limited to maritime and land disputes, the use of child soldiers in times of war, accessibility to education for all, and the effects of climate change on small island developing states.
You might be asking yourself, “So what? Every conference does this,” but I'd beg to differ. Here at SRMUN, we are committed to ensuring throughout our three-day conferences that delegates are provided with an environment in which they leave with a better understanding of international cooperation, develop public speaking skills, receive writing tips and tricks, network with students from across the country, and all while competing for prestigious individual and delegation awards.
Further, what sets us aside from all other conferences is our ability to actively progress not only by standards of offering new and exciting committees and topics but further by looking at our past and molding our future. The embodiment of change is at our forefront and ask this as well of our delegates when researching, debating and writing about the topics set forth for them. Thus, ‘compare and contrast’ is the inspiration for this years conference theme:
“Assessing the Challenges and Opportunities of Globalism in the 21st Century”
In close, the above is a huge task to undertake for just three short days but we cannot wait to have you join us for this ride and help us find solutions for the committees and topics we have chosen for you to simulate. Therefore, on behalf of the SRMUN Charlotte 2017 Staff, it is my utmost pleasure to welcome you to this uniquely special installment of SRMUN Charlotte as embark on five years of production to be held from Thursday, March 30, 2017, to Saturday, April 1, 2017 at the Omni Charlotte Hotel.
If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, etc., please do not hesitate to contact myself. I look forward to speaking and meeting with you soon!
