Conferences

Our conferences offer excellent opportunities to hone your skills with your peers — all while having a blast!

In-person conferences are back!

Now that we’re in person, there is so much more we can do! Meetings will be more productive, training will be more efficient, and club operations will be smoother. Model UN is best known for its conferences, which allow you to take advantage of all the previous benefits as well as grow closer to other members. Especially for travel conferences, you are essentially going on a vacation with your favorite people (yes, Model UN is that fun) while putting your speaking and leadership skills to the test. Of course, you will also be able to participate in mock conferences before actual conferences to master conference etiquette and work out the kinks. We’re sure you will have a great experience with conferences, and we hope you join us for our next one!

November 12, 2021 - November 14, 2021 | Stanford University

SMUNC: Stanford Model UN Conference

The Stanford Model United Nations Conference is one of the most competitive conferences of the year, but also one with most to offer. With three days packed with five committee sessions, it may leave you a bit exhausted, but never with any regrets about attending!

December 11, 2021 - December 12, 2021 | Lowell High School

SFMUN: San Fransisco Model United Nations Conference

Our second conference of the year is the San Francisco Model United Nations conference, held by Lowell High School. One of the most beginner-friendly conferences we attend, SFMUN is a great way to get started in Model UN, while also providing experienced delegates with plenty of chances to hone their skills. It’s a much less intense and more beginner-friendly conference, and it’s highly recommended for all delegates to attend.

January 28, 2022 - January 29, 2022 | Santa Teresa High School

SCVMUN: Santa Clara Valley Model United Nations Conference

The Santa Clara Valley Model United Nations Conference is our third conference of the year, and also recommended for all members regardless of prior experience. SCVMUN is a great chance to prepare for more difficult or competitive conferences — but as the second-oldest and second-largest conference on the West Coast, it has plenty to offer of its own right as well.

February 17, 2022 - February 20, 2022 | Georgetown University

NAIMUN: North American Invitational Model United Nations Conference

The North American Invitational Model United Nations Conference is one of our travel conferences. With over 3,000 delegates each year, NAIMUN is the largest student-run Model United Nations conference in the world, and many consider it the de facto national championship conference. Don’t let all that scare you, though: it’s often best remembered by delegates as a 4-5 day trip to Washington, DC, full of chances to meet new people and make new friends.

March 4, 2022 - March 6, 2022 | University of California, Berkeley

BMUN: Berkeley Model United Nations Conference

Our fifth conference of the year, Berkeley Model United Nations Conference, is the oldest high school Model UN conference in the world. With over 2,000 delegates each year, it ranks with NAIMUN among the premier high school conferences in the world — and, likewise, among those with the most fun in store. BMUN is our second overnight conference, located in nearby Berkeley, California, including a 2-night hotel stay.

TBA | Monta Vista High School

SBMUN: South Bay Model United Nations

South Bay Model United Nations Conference is our sixth conference of the year, and is co-hosted by yours truly at Monta Vista! It’s a great chance to hone your Model UN skills with other delegates from the Bay Area. MUN conferences are rare in the spring season, so this is a great way for you to keep honing on your MUN abilities.

TBA | University of California, Davis

DMUNC: Davis Model United Nations Conference

Our final conference of the year, Davis Model United Nations Conference, is an excellent way for you to put the skills you’ve accumulated during the year to the test. DMUNC has a variety of both novices and experienced members, and we’re sure that you will do great after practicing for so long! DMUNC is our last overnight conference, including a likely 2-night stay at a hotel near the Davis campus.
