A Message from the Secretary General

KnightMUN returns this year in its 17th iteration, building off of the success of years past. This years conference will again be at the beautiful Global UCF building at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida. KnightMUN is proud to consider itself a competitive training conference, as we believe that it is our duty to help every delegate that attends each year better. We will be bringing a highly experienced staff to KnightMUN XVII to facilitate this, with our staffers bringing diverse, nuanced perspectives and approaches to their committees and work. For the first time in KnightMUN history, the Union of South American Nations (USAN) and the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) join the lineup. Other committees will range from an activist group bent on saving the environment to the future of cybersecurity. From the executive board and the rest of the KnightMUN XVI staff, we welcome you to our conference!
