UMass Model United Nations Meetings on Zoom every Wednesday at 7pm staring 09/09. Zoom link: https://umass-amherst.zoom.us/j/99387593646 Meeting ID: 993 8759 3646 The UMASS International Relations Club is a student organization founded a decade ago with the intent of providing an organization for those students interested in international politics and relations.

The IRC takes a holistic approach to the idea of international relations. The organization hosts on campus events promoting international relations issues in an effort to raise consciousness, participates in the collegiate Model United Nations circuit throughout the country with great success and hosts a number of events designed to bring international awareness to the larger community audience.

Are you interested in international issues? Do you like keeping up with global news? Have you ever considered working in international diplomacy?

If any of these sound like something that may interest you, you should “czech” out the UMass Model UN Club! Although we are not having in-person meetings this semester, we will be holding weekly meetings over Zoom. We will have a variety of speakers talk to us throughout the semester on international affairs as well as many other exciting events planned!

We are a very welcoming club and encourage people of all levels of experience in MUN to join us in our meetings. In fact many members have had no prior experience and have ended up being the most involved members in the club. This semester will be a great opportunity to learn more about our club, while listening to speakers talk about pressing global issues.

Our first remote meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 9th at 7 pm EST.

We will continue to have our meetings every Wednesday after that, also at 7 pm EST. We will be using the recurring Zoom link below:

Make sure to save this link--or, to make things even easier, we highly recommend signing up for our new Remind 101! This will let us send you text reminders about meetings with the Zoom link attached so you don’t need to hunt it down.

To join the UMass MUN Remind, send a text to: 81010 with the message @umassmun OR use this link: https://www.remind.com/join/umassmun?utm_source=email&utm_medium=ios&utm_campaign=join_invite

If you have any questions about Model UN please contact us as we are happy to respond. You can reach us @umassmun on instagram!

We hope to see old and fresh faces at our first meeting on Wednesday September 9th!

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POST CAREFULLY!!!!

Hi all hope that your winter break is going well! Just wanted to let you all know that the HNMUN (Harvard National Model United Nations) and BUCS (Brown University Crisis Simulation) application is up!
https://goo.gl/forms/cvamuLitQe6DnEdH2

HNMUN will be 2/14-2/17 and BUCS will be 3/1-3/3. The only fee we require if you are attending a conference is a $60 delegate due. However, if some reason you are not able to pay just contact one of the head delegates at [email protected] .

We will be staying at Boston Park Plaza Hotel for HNMUN and Omni Providence Hotel for BUCS. Both locations are about 1 hr and 45 mins away. The club rents two minivans out and either head dels or e-board members will drive. The club also provides delegates with an excusal letter for the days you will have to skip class.

Remember there is no previous MUN experience required. We welcome everyone to apply. Unlike the fall semester we will not be conducting interviews. We will be assessing everyone based on their club activeness and responses to the application!

The goal is to pick the roster for HNMUN by 2/3 and for BUCS by 2/10. That being said 2/1 is the last day where you can fill out the form if you want to go to HNMUN. We will close the application on 2/8 for BUCS.

If you are interested in going to these conferences please fill out this travel liability form. The school stresses that we have these completed well before we go on a trip! https://umass-amherst.na1.echosign.com/public/esignWidget?wid=CBFCIBAA3AAABLblqZhCgIrt2pCpeXiE49UXHbRMPp6VyhiVqErwriwNAKdE_G0VM3Pfa64Ez56giAdkFgoo*

If Model UN is something you enjoy about IRC, I suggest you take a look at NHSMUN, an international MUN conference in NYC. The application for staffing this conference just came out and it's linked below! The conference is in NYC, but the board of directors pays for your stay in NYC for a week and also trains and prepares each staff member extensively before the conference. It would be wonderful to see more UMass people join the staff! Please take a look at the director application linked below or the NHSMUN website for more information.
