Model United Nations Conference
February 26th, 2022
Dear Delegates, Advisors, and Friends of LYMUN,
My name is Eric White and I am currently serving as your Secretary-General for LYMUN VIII! I am beyond excited to share this experience with every delegate, new or experienced, at our in-person conference this year. I am currently a Junior at Lyons Township High School, this being my third year in the club. After experiencing Zoom conferences last year, it thrills me to know that each and every delegate attending LYMUN will be inside LT.
This conference offers committees for both new and experienced delegates, so we are excited to have you all participate. Year after year, LYMUN has been a successful conference because it serves as a great opportunity for delegates to experience real cooperation and communication. It offers interesting topics between each committee along with skillful chairs and allows delegates to broaden their interests in politics and foreign diplomacy. Furthermore, LYMUN serves as a great training conference where both experienced and new delegates can improve their public speaking skills and learn more about the subject at hand. Even if this is your very first conference, don’t be afraid to raise your placard or ask your chair questions! No matter what, I guarantee every delegate can walk out of this conference having improved their skills as a delegate.
Our staff understands that every delegate might not be accustomed to rules of procedure, or in general, what to do during committee. To help delegates, we encourage them to look at our LYMUN handbook, where delegates can find rules of parliamentary procedure and get a just of how committee will run. Nevertheless, all of our chairs are fully trained to give delegates the best LYMUN experience possible! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
Best of Luck,
Secretary-General, LYMUN VIII
