Letter from Markham MUN's Secretary-General
Dear Faculty Advisors, Delegates, and Esteemed Guests,
It is my distinct honour and privilege to welcome you to Markham Model United Nations 2018, which will be held from Saturday, June 23 to Sunday, June 24, 2018, at Markham College.
In this year's session, the Markham team that claimed the Best International Delegation Award at Harvard MUN 2018 strives to provide a bigger and, hopefully, more enriching conference than ever before.
At Markham, we enormously value the contributions of every delegate and look forward to welcoming 450 high school students. They will be led by 50 of the school and country's most renowned Chairs. Our 1:9 Chair-to-delegate ratio will enable the unparalleled, close evaluation of every delegate.
Furthermore, we seek to provide the most dynamic, challenging and genuine simulation of international diplomacy. Our conference's 14 committees will offer delegates the opportunity to debate topics adapted from the current agenda of the United Nations and its affiliated regional bodies under our theme of "Tackling Security, Development and Societal Obstacles to Sustainable Development".
Moreover, as we strive to impact our community beyond the educational value of our conference, we will be partnering with UNICEF Perú to collect funds directed towards the country's most needy children.
Finally, I look forward to hosting you at Markham's ground-breaking event and placing the best of Markham's facilities at your disposal.
Markham Model United Nations 2018
