Delegates and sponsor teachers,
It is with the greatest delight that I welcome you to Canadian High Schools Model United Nations 2014. This year will be the tenth session of the conference, and we are dedicated to providing the best possible delegate experience for students as they learn, debate, and connect.
CAHSMUN 2014 will be held at the Sheraton Wall Centre hotel in downtown Vancouver from April 4th to 6th. The conference features three General Assemblies: SPECPOL, Legal, and DISEC. Specialized committees include OIC, Interpol, WHO, JCC, NATO, HC and UNSC. The committees cover a wide range of topics, and we trust that delegates, whether they wish to discuss human rights or military intervention, will be able to find a committee that interests them.
I have personally been both a delegate and a staff member at CAHSMUN, and the impact that Model United Nations has left on my life extends far beyond the committee room. I hope that it will do the same for others - the Secretariat team at CAHSMUN has worked hard to create a conference that will challenge delegates to improve their public speaking skills, to learn more about the world around them, to become better global citizens.
As one of the largest conferences in Western Canada, CAHSMUN prides itself on its inclusiveness. We strive to connect youth from all backgrounds, and encourage them to learn from each other. Regardless of whether you are a first time delegate or a seasoned member of Model United Nations community, you will find CAHSMUN 2014 to be an engaging and educational experience.
I look forward to seeing you in April!
Secretary General of CAHSMUN 2014
