    Model United Nations Conference 

    February 25th, 2023

  • Dear Delegates, Advisors, and Friends of LYMUN, 

    My name is Sophie Barrett and I am currently serving as your Secretary-General for LYMUN IX! I am beyond excited to share this experience with every delegate, new or experienced, at our conference this year. I am currently a Senior at LTHS and this is my fourth year of LTMUN. Outside of MUN I am a captain of the speech team, a member of choir and a Taylor Swift super fan. 

    This conference offers committees for both new and experienced delegates, and we are so 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. 

    To help delegates, we encourage everyone to look at our LYMUN handbook, where delegates can find rules of parliamentary procedure and get an idea of how each committee will run. Our chairs are ready to help you in committee with any questions you might have. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

    Good luck everyone!!

    Sophie Barrett 
    Secretary-General, LYMUN IX
