Delegates, Faculty Advisors, Sponsors, and Visitors, As the Secretary General of UCBMUN, it is my utmost honor to welcome you to UC Berkeley Model United Nations Conference XIX from February 26th until March 1st, 2015. This year UCBMUN will take place in the beautiful, albeit foggy, city of San Francisco at the Hilton in the Financial District.
The 17 committees at UC Berkeley Model United Nations Conference XIX address a breadth of issues, aiming to challenge delegates and allow for productive debate. The conference is divided into three sets of committees: Specialized Bodies and General Assembly, Crisis Committees, and, after their immense success last year, Joint-Crisis Committees.
The birthplace of the UN, San Francisco, is called home by many diverse nationalities and cultures. Situated in the heart of the city, UCBMUN XIX is perfectly placed for delegates to discover all parts of the city. With a variety of social events, delegates will explore the city taking in the sights and sounds of one of the world’s most famous cities. Tours around the Bay Area will let delegates see the city that beatniks, immigrants, and tech start ups have all called home.
The secretariat of UCBMUN XIX comes from across the globe, from far-east Asia to Orange County. The conference staff brings with it experience in both the high school circuit and the collegiate circuit. Training provided the entire school year ensures that all staff can provide an incredible experience to our delegates. Members are constantly available to help delegates enjoy, learn, and excel at UCBMUN XIX.
