Dear Teachers, Parents, and Prospective Delegates,

It is my honour to cordially invite you to the Vancouver Model United Nations 2021 conference. Vancouver Model United Nations (VMUN) is the largest student-run Model UN conference in Canada and one of the most prestigious conferences on the continent, having hosted over 1,600 delegates, staff, teachers, and distinguished guests in 2020. VMUN 2021 will be held virtually from January 29-31th 2021.

Since its inception in 2002, VMUN has strived to provide a realistic, engaging, and exciting simulation of the United Nations and its associated agencies for passionate youth who are interested in global issues. Long-acknowledged as one of Canada’s preeminent Model UN conferences, VMUN has, over the years, garnered a reputation as a professional, vibrant, and affordable experience for all delegates. We are proud to once again offer the top-notch debate quality, staff, and keynote speakers that have become synonymous with VMUN.

Our Secretariat team is working hard to prepare the best conference to date and we are more than excited to be sharing our work with you. We are committed to expanding the diversity of our delegate pool, optimizing our committees and technical systems in order to provide the best possible delegate experience, and providing the same high quality conference we have become known for throughout North America and beyond. Especially on a virtual platform, VMUN 2021 is striving to expand the scope of our delegate pool beyond our typical geographic limitations.

In addition to offering a diverse and educational experience, VMUN also offers considerable financial aid for delegates who could not otherwise afford to attend. We firmly believe that no willing delegate should be prevented from attending VMUN due to financial concerns. For more information about our payment structure or how to register your school, please refer to our page, www.vmun.com/registration.

To transfer the same high-quality debate and atmosphere to an online platform, we are excited to work with Classrooms.Cloud to create a custom-made virtual platform for our 20th iteration. While this experience may seem different than the traditional committee room, we are confident that our professional staff, informative backgrounders, and engaging debate will allow for an immersive experience. It is our sincere hope that you will join us at VMUN 2021. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact sg@vmun.com or communications@vmun.com, or consult our website at www.vmun.com. On behalf of the VMUN Secretariat and staff, thank you for your time and consideration. We hope to see you this upcoming January!

Regards,

William Tsai
