Learn today, lead tomorrow.
Delegates and Faculty Advisors,
Welcome to Canadian High Schools Model United Nations XIV.
My name is Kevin Zuo and I have the honour to serve as the Secretary-General for CAHSMUN 2018. On behalf of the Secretariat team and Board of Directors, I would like to formally invite you to our fourteenth session, to be held April 6th to April 8th, 2018 at the Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel in Vancouver, Canada.
At our thirteenth session this past March, delegates in attendance reached a record high of 800. From the intense debate in the Disarmament and International Security Committee to the covert negotiations in the historical Roman Senate, delegates at our most recent session spent three days immersed in an exciting and realistic simulation of not only the United Nations, but also a plethora of other political conventions - past and present. I could not be more excited to bring the unparalleled level of substantive excellence that CAHSMUN is renowned for to our upcoming session.
Come April, delegates and their faculty advisors will descend on Vancouver to address some of today’s most pressing issues, explore the world of international diplomacy, and engage in high level debates not found anywhere else. Together with our staff of over 60 highschool students from across Western Canada, delegates will experience the challenges and thrills of global politics by assuming the roles of United Nations representatives and other international decision-makers to either alter history, or better the future.
In line with our core mission of education, we believe that CAHSMUN 2018 will be an opportunity for delegates to gain insight into the art of diplomacy, understand the value of collaboration and compromise, and build skills in public speaking, research, and debate. However, above all else, we hope that CAHSMUN will inspire delegates to take the lessons learned at conference beyond the committee room, continuing to grapple with the complex issues in the world today and work towards change, central to our theme of “Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow”.
The entire staff of CAHSMUN 2018 and I are committed to creating a dynamic and educational opportunity for highschool students from around the world, and I sincerely hope that you will consider joining us. Please do not hesitate to contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
We look forward to welcoming you to Vancouver in April.
