LETTER FROM THE SECRETARY-GENERAL
Honored Delegates, Staff, and Advisers,
Welcome to the fifth annual UC Santa Barbara Intercollegiate Model United Nations Conference (SBIMUN for short)! SBIMUN will be held from November 7 to 9, 2014 on our sunny beachside campus in the beautiful city of Santa Barbara.
Our Model UN team has grown in such short time, from starting out as a ten member group to a group with a full Secretariat organizing the biggest fall college conference in the west. Last year, we had about 380 delegates come to our campus for SBIMUN, and the positive feedback we received has allowed us to make this year’s conference our most challenging and fun one yet.
I am a fourth year Political Science and French major, and this is my seventh year doing Model UN. Throughout my years of learning and traveling with this club, I have gained valuable life skills and become more confident in not only myself, but the ideas that I can produce. MUN has the potential to impact your life in such a positive way, and we hope to be that step in your journey to becoming a diplomatic delegate, a charismatic speaker, and a worldly problem-solver.
Myself, the conference staff, and the rest of our Model UN team have continued to work around the clock to make this the best SBIMUN to date. We are excited to include you in the driven debate and fun experiences the weekend holds, and I am confident that this year’s conference will exceed our expectations. We look forward to seeing you at UCSB in the fall!
Secretary-General, SBIMUN 2014
