We are proud to invite you the 18th annual session of Academy Model United Nations. AMUN XVIII will take place on January 26 and 27, 2017 at the Bergen Academies in Hackensack, New Jersey. Our conference provides students with a taste of organized debate, allowing them to develop skills in diplomacy and cooperation while acquiring knowledge about international relations. We hope you will join us for what we know will be a substantive and exciting conference for all.
In the past, our dedicated staff has excelled in offering lively debate in a productive atmosphere. Delegates will learn to view the world from the perspectives of different nations - nations whose beliefs may contradict their own. This is what we strive for: to open up the eyes of young people to ideas and solutions previously unconsidered.
We pride ourselves in the ability to cater to all skill levels. Novices and experienced delegates alike will have no trouble finding committees here to fit their abilities and interests. Additionally, our regulation of committee size lets newer delegates clearly speak their positions. Finally, we are the only multi-day high school organized conference in the NYC metro area, meaning delegates spend more hours in committee debating, preparing them for weekend long collegiate-level competitions, at a fraction of the cost.
