Deadline:

  • The Early Registration deadline is May 31, 2015.
  • The Regular Registration deadline is September 15, 2015.

When: November 10-14, 2015

The second annual WFUNA International Model United Nations Conference (WIMUN) will take place November 10-14, 2015 at the United Nations Headquarters and the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City. WIMUN is the premier international Model UN conference that simulates the UN4MUN Rules of Procedure produced by the United Nations Department of Public Information. Opening and Closing Plenary sessions and ceremonies will be held at the UN General Assembly Hall.

WIMUN is an accurate simulation of the United Nations, and one of the key aspects of a proper UN simulation should include the election of General Assembly officials. This is meant to convey the proper power structure in the UN where the member states determine their own officials and the UN Secretariat assists those officials. Collectively, the officials are called the General Committee for the General Assembly Plenary sessions and a Bureau for each of the Main Committees.

  • WIMUN will be holding online elections in the fall after registration has closed, and details about the elections process will be announced at a later date.
  • Permanent 5 member states customarily do not hold the President of the General Assembly or Chair roles at the UN and will therefore not be able to run for those roles as WIMUN.
  • Officials who are elected will cease to represent their member state in Committee and will therefore not be part of your assigned country delegation.
  • They will also receive training from the WIMUN Secretaries.
