Letter from the Secretary General
Dear EagleMUNC Delegates,
I am incredibly thrilled and honored to welcome you to EagleMUNC and to Boston College for our fourth annual conference. It is my hope that the very second that you walk into the committee room, you will be truly immersed in an experience that simulates the real world of international politics and decision-making. For 40 consecutive hours, you will be placed in the shoes of politicians, businessmen, and historical leaders and decide how you want to shape the world. This iteration of EagleMUNC looks to be the best yet as we seek to build on the lessons, successes, and challenges of the past three years to bring you a conference unrivaled in quality and value.
This coming conference, we will offer 17 unique and small crisis-driven committees that give delegates the chance to deeply explore a topic in an intimate setting. Our average committee size for EagleMUNC IV will be 30 delegates, which will grant us the opportunity to provide a level of personal interaction before and during the conference that is unrivaled on the Model UN circuit. We look forward to providing an unparalleled delegate to staff ratio of 5:1 to ensure that our goals are made a reality. Our committee offerings, while wide-ranging and unique, can all be traced back to this year’s conference theme: “Liberty & Security.” This theme encompasses unique committees such as a recreation of the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1948 and a full Central Intelligence Agency simulation, as well as a committee tracing the epic path of the Peloponnesian War. For both our novice delegates and students seeking a more classical Model UN experience, we will offer committees such as a United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and a United Nations Security Council (UNSC), among many others.
Each of these committees will be built on EagleMUNC’s unique notion of the 40 Hour Simulation, an experience that begins when the opening gavel snaps and does not pause until our best delegations have the honor of slamming the gavel to close EagleMUNC on Sunday morning. The heart and soul of the 40 Hour Simulation are the out-of-committee events and activities – such as fundraising receptions for politicians, strategy meetings for military commanders, and social events for diplomats – that encourage dialogue outside of the formal committee setting, and more closely emulate the way politics happen in the real world.
We know that the great opportunity to visit Boston in the springtime is one of the reasons many delegations choose to attend EagleMUNC. Home to over 100 colleges and universities, as well as the birthplace of the American Revolution, Boston is an educational and historical icon that we hope our visiting schools will take advantage of during their stay here. We also hope delegations will sign up for our Thursday EagleMUNC programming on Boston Colleges campus, where they will have the opportunity to meet with admissions counselors, tour the campus, hear from faculty performing cutting edge research on the very issues they will be discussing in committee, and learn from experienced delegates on the best strategies and techniques to succeed in the EagleMUNC simulation.
To conclude, Thank You for choosing to attend EagleMUNC. It is my commitment that each one of our 100 plus staffers will work tirelessly to make your experience at EagleMUNC one to be remembered. We believe we offer a Model UN experience unparalleled on the Model UN circuit, and we strive to provide a superior level of customer service. We take feedback seriously and promptly responding to concerns and issues is a tenant on which our whole organization is constructed. If you have any questions or any issues arise before, during, or after your time with us at EagleMUNC, please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones in March, and please accept my best wishes for the first half of the academic year.
Yours in Diplomacy,
Secretary General – EagleMUNC IV
