Dear Head Delegates and Advisors,

My name is Beckett Kelly and I am the Secretary-General for the UC Berkeley Model United Nations Conference in March 2017. UCBMUN is in our 21st year and we are proud to be one of the oldest Model UN programs in the country. Each year our conference brings hundreds of delegates from top universities across the nation and the world to San Francisco, California to debate sociopolitical issues that resonate across the globe.

This year, UCBMUN XXI will be hosted from March 2nd to March 5th at the Hilton, Financial District, San Francisco. Delegates will participate in committees, utilizing months of research and preparation to develop resolutions for major geopolitical problems. Our diverse delegates come from various fields, colleges, and regions.

UCBMUN creates opportunities for potential leaders of the next generation to engage in multi-faceted dialogue, face personal growth, gain comprehensive perspectives on world issues, and learn about the trials and triumphs of international diplomacy, all in the hopes of creating a better of tomorrow.

Our conference draws highly motivated individuals that have already made impacts in their communities and will undoubtedly continue to do so in the future. We look forward to your joining us in this exciting journey and experience all that UCBMUN and San Francisco have to offer! If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me at sg@ucbmun.org.

Sincerely, Beckett Kelly

    We understand that change happens and sometimes members back out of events for various reasons. If you wish to change your delegation you must inform the Chief of Staff - External within 4 weeks of your registration or February 14th whichever is earlier in order to receive a full refund. If you reduce the size of your delegation UCBMUN will refund your delegation on the first day of the conference. If you increase the size of your delegation you must bring a check for the additional amount owed on the first day of the conference.
  4. Refund Policy
    Delegations will be refunded their entire payment if they inform UCBMUN staff of their cancellation within 30 days of registering. Delegations will be refunded half their payment if they inform UCBMUN staff of their cancellation within 60 days of registering. Delegations will not be refunded if they fail to inform UCBMUN staff of their cancellation within 60 days of registering.
