Letter from the Secretary-General and Director General

Dear Delegates, Faculty Advisors, Staffers and Partners,

It is our honor to invite you to the fifth iteration of the Queen’s Model United Nations Invitational, held this year in the City of Kingston on November 14-17, 2019! QMUNi is an annual student-run conference held at the prestigious Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Since its foundation in 2014, QMUNi has grown to become one of the top Model United Nations (MUN) conferences in North America, bringing more than three hundred delegates to Kingston for an incredibly impactful four-day event. Celebrating its fifth iteration this year, QMUNi 2019 marks a unique opportunity for growth and innovation within the scope of the conference. Our purpose is to work hard to put on a conference that is on par with the excellence and dedication displayed by each delegate and staffer over the years.

QMUNi’s mandate is to connect students from a diverse range of backgrounds to contemporary international issues; inspiring them to think about the world from new perspectives. The cornerstone of our philosophy is to provide our delegates with the opportunity to discuss, debate, and resolve relevant contentious issues. We provide a wide variety of relevant committees to reflect the diversity and complexity of the world today. Diversity in debate is an unparalleled asset - providing tomorrow’s leaders with the tools and skills necessary to mitigate some of the world’s most pressing issues.

For the past five years, QMUNi has inspired the leaders of tomorrow, and the staff cannot wait for the vibrancy of the delegates to illuminate the city once again this fall. We look forward to welcoming you on November 14th!
