Welcome to PEAMUN X
Letter from our secretary general
Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisers,
There are spaceships, cruise ships, battleships, but none is better than friendship. There is black tea, green tea, bubble tea, but none is better than amity.
Whether you are marvelling at the ingenuity of these rhetorics or cringing profusely because you have heard them repeated so many times in General Assemblies, know that they genuinely express the warm sentiments with which I invite you to Phillips Exeter Model’s 10th annual Model UN conference, PEAMUN X.
PEAMUN is a high-quality one-day event that gathers together high school students for an exercise in public speaking and people skills that is simultaneously challenging and fun. 427 delegates attended our ninth session in 2017, hailing from schools as close as New Hampshire and as far as Puerto Rico. In 2018, the conference will be held on Sunday, November 4 on the campus of Phillips Exeter Academy.
After a decade running, our conference has grown in scale and scope, amassing a wealth of inevitable trials and errors along the way. All members of the current organizing team, however, are committed to making PEAMUN X the best one yet.
This year, we will be introducing new features to our conference, including a Resource page with guidelines and tutorials for novice delegates as well as a mysterious, suspenseful committee known as Ad-Hoc that will not disappoint our most veteran ones. Topics discussed at PEAMUN X range from modern-day pirates to 9/11 and the two China problem of 1950; no matter what your experience level is, you will find the right committee for you at our conference.
Join us this fall for a day of animated debate as members of the UN, the Cabinet of President W. Bush, or, if you thus desire, the enlightened Illuminati.
Breakfast will be served during registration, and lunch will be served between committee sessions. For any schools wishing to stay overnight, easily accessible accommodation at The Exeter Inn and the Inn by the Bandstand is available within the campus vicinity.
The application for PEAMUN X opens on May 5, 2018. As Secretary General, I cannot be more excited to carry on the tradition of excellence and care that has characterized our conference over the past ten years.
Secretary General, Phillips Exeter Model United Nations 2018
