Cortney Moshier - Secretary-General - SRMUN Charlotte 2014
Dear Delegates, Faculty Advisors, and Friends of SRMUN:
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to SRMUN Charlotte 2014, to be held from April 10-12, 2014 at the Omni Hotel in Charlotte, North Carolina. For nearly twenty-five years SRMUN has offered colleges and universities the platform to discuss international relations and make progress on some of the most pressing global issues facing the world today. Now, with both a fall and spring conference, delegates have more opportunities to take part in a well-run, educational, and rewarding experience.
For those schools that have never been to SRMUN, please take the time to look through the website and become familiar with our conferences, venues and specifics. For those returning, make sure you take a look at the amazing line-up of challenging committees we are offering this year and valuable resources for your preparations. Registration for SRMUN Charlotte 2014 will be open on September 25, 2013. Please remember to register early, because Member States are assigned on a first-come first serve basis.
It is also my honor to announce the theme for SRMUN Charlotte 2014:
"Ensuring Peace and Security in a Turbulent Global Environment: Fostering Prosperity and Forward Movement"
We are living in a world overwhelmed by violence and conflict, highlighting the need for peace and security to ensure the future of our global population. Undoubtedly, security is a very broad topic, with many diverse subject areas that will be addressed in our committees. These sub-topics can range from: physical security and conflicts; food and water security; human rights; population issues and land disputes; violence relating to women, children and religious issues; and education, the foundation for dialogue and understanding.
We know that all of the world's conflicts are not going to be solved in the three days of conference, but I am confident that delegates are ready to have a meaningful conversation about peaceful solutions to many problems facing the world today, our future depends on it. SRMUN stresses the importance of communication, collaboration and compromise and I challenge you all to bring those valuable resources with you to Charlotte and get ready for an amazing educational experience.
As you prepare for the conference or if you have questions pertaining to any aspect of SRMUN, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you all and best of luck in your preparations!
SRMUN Charlotte 2014
