Honorable Delegates and Advisors,
For 27 years, Model United Nations at the University of Michigan has been fostering debate and discussion of international issues among young people. It is my hope that the spirit of MUNUM will inspire you to think globally in everything that you do beyond the doors of the Michigan Union. It is with this hope that I invite you to MUNUM XXVII, which will take place from January 16-19, 2014 at the Michigan Union in Ann Arbor, MI.
The Secretariat and staff are working harder than ever this year to make MUNUM XXVII the best conference yet! I sincerely wish that over the course of the four days that you, your peers, your advisors and the staff will take on the world's challenges and leave with a deeper understanding of diplomacy and global politics.
On behalf of myself, the Secretariat and the staff, I welcome you to MUNUM XXVII. We are making changes to make this conference more realistic and more enjoyable; and we look forward to a weekend of exciting debate and tons of fun!
