Dear Distinguished Delegates and Advisors,
Welcome to the 2019 ERCIYES KOLEJI Model United Nations (EKMUN) High/Middle School Conference! As your secretaries general and committee chairs, we are looking forward to meeting you and hearing your ideas for solving international problems.
The United Nations (UN) depends on the cooperation and goodwill of its 193 Member States. Because each state has unique interests and concerns, it is challenging to write, negotiate, and pass resolutions. Every stage of the process demands creativity and diplomacy.
As your secretaries-general and committee chairs, we will work to keep the 2019 EKMUN committees running smoothly. We will do our best to help you understand parliamentary procedure and to ensure that the views of all delegates are heard and respected.
We expect each delegate to come to the conference with an understanding of his or her country’s positions and a willingness to forge agreements .To ensure that you act professionally and diplomatically, please learn and practice EKMUN’s Rules of Procedure, and read and adhere to EKMUN’s Delegate Dress and Conduct Code. Those documents and many more can be found on our website, it is highly recommended that you print all of the above documents, plus the Rules Chart, Resolution Writing Guide and Template, your position paper, the topic and background guides for your committee, and any additional research regarding your country compiled in a binder or folder to give you easy access to these resources at the conference.
If you have any questions or comments before the conference, please contact Secretary-General MELIKE KAYA
We look forward to seeing you at ERCIYES KOLEJI on Saturday, April 13 and wish you the very best in your preparations.
