Dear Delegates, Advisors, and Parents,
Welcome to Yale Model United Nations XLIV!
My name is Oleksa Alex Martiniouk and I have the honor to serve as the Secretary-General for YMUN XLIV. The Yale International Relations Association and YMUN Secretariat are proud to announce that our forty-fourth session will be held from January 18th to 21st, 2018 on Yale's campus in New Haven, CT. Registration for the conference will open 8pm EST on May 22nd, 2017.
As we begin preparations for our forty-fourth iteration of Yale Model United Nations, we are committed to our educational mission and strive to create an unparalleled delegate experience. We are excited to announce a revamped committee experience for our delegates this year: an organ dedicated to crisis committees will join the traditional YMUN committee organs to embrace the diverse skill-sets and interests that delegates bring to the conference. To make our conference more accessible to a wider range of delegates whilst providing the highest caliber of debate, we will be adopting the UNA-USA Rules of Procedure. In line with our commitment to accessibility, we are excited to build upon last year's success with our increased financial aid, whilst also introducing inaugural aid programs in accordance with our dedication to providing a diverse and educational experience at our conference.
As my Secretariat and I continue preparing for YMUN XLIV, be sure to like our Facebook page here, and follow us on Instagram here and Twitter here. The website is currently under construction, but will be updated by early May, prior to registration. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to see you in January!
Thank you for your interest in our conference.
Oleksa Alex Martiniouk
Secretary-General, YMUN XLIV
