MESSAGE FROM SECRETARY-GENERAL
Dear Delegates and Advisors,
Welcome to DAIMUN! My name is Ngan Phan, and it is my greatest pleasure to serve as the Secretary-General of Danang International Model United Nations. This year, we will do our best to provide an immersive and innovative Model UN experience, allowing delegates to tackle some of the most difficult challenges our society faces. Although our executive team is new, we are motivated enough to guarantee our participants an exceptional 4-days conference where they will have the chance to discuss the crucial problems related to this year's theme: “Fostering Development: Intervention in a Globalized World”. Together with our staff, delegates will experience the challenges and thrills of international diplomacy by assuming the roles of UN representatives and other international decision-makers. We do our best to provide an immersive and innovative Model UN experience, allowing delegates to tackle some of the most difficult challenges our society faces. We are incredibly excited to be returning to Danang in July, and we look forward to putting upon the best conference experience yet!
At our first session, delegations in attendance hailed from Danang, other cities in Vietnam and other countries. To make our conference more accessible to a wider range of delegates whilst providing the highest caliber of debate, we will be adopting the UNA-USA Rules of Procedure. This year, our conference will include four committees: the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). Outside of committees, DAIMUN offers a wide range of panels and workshops to provide learning opportunities beyond debate. Delegates even have the opportunity to engage with DAIMUN before the conference begins in the summer with our "Webinars Project", which features over 4 webinars hold monthly towards July. Through all of our programs, DAIMUN will strive to achieve its educational mission in Danang.
Application for our first conference session will be opened on May 5, 2018. Important conference dates and deadlines, along with the tentative conference schedule, can be found on the Information tab of our website. I encourage you to register as soon as possible to stay in touch and secure a seat for this first simulation.
As my Secretariat and I continue preparing for DAIMUN I, be sure to like our Facebook page. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org. The entire staff of DAIMUN 2018 and I are committed to creating a dynamic and educational opportunity for high-school and college students in Vietnam, and I sincerely hope that you will consider joining us this summer! Again, welcome to DAIMUN!
