Dear Delegates, Parents, and Advisors,
Welcome to the 3rd annual All-American Invitational! This conference holds a great opportunity for every level of participant, whether you are just starting out or you are amassing a collection of gavels! The conference provides a free and unique chance to test out your research and arguments prepared for other major conferences. Our invitational runs committees that are also occurring at some of the major conferences throughout the country directly after the invitational. This allows students to get a better feel for the committees they are participating in at conferences such as BOSMUN, NAIMUN, MUNUC, ILMUNC, and HMUN!
Our conference is formatted differently than the major conferences which we believe better suits the students’ ability to cultivate their skills for the rest of their MUN careers! Our small and flexible committees allow participants to find their voices and explore their capabilities with the helpful guidance of our experienced chairs. Our philosophy stands to nurture your abilities rather than force them into a rigid and specific format. The chairs at this conference will not gavel you down or raise their voices, rather they will foster your discussion and politely treat you as a passionate orator. Though our committees have set topics, the chairs will give lots of leeway as to how you would like to tackle the issues facing you.
We hope that you will come and participate in the Invitational as it is an amazing opportunity to improve your skills at a fun conference with many great committees and topics! Remember to keep in mind that unlike other conferences, this conference is free of charge and students may enter on their own without a teacher needed! Register now as spots fill up quickly! Lunch and conference T-shirts are available for purchase!
I hope that you will enjoy the amazing conference we have prepared for you!
