The Great Lakes Invitational Conference Association has run several different conferences since its inception in 1973. Throughout GLICA’s history, the Great Lakes Invitational Model United Nations, or GLIMUN, has been GLICA’s flagship conference. GLIMUN is a more “traditional” Model UN conference that takes place in the fall semester, consisting of General Assembly and Economic & Social Council committees that culminate in plenary sessions, along with a specialized, usually Security Council, committee. GLICA has also historically run additional, somewhat smaller, conferences with a greater focus on specialized committees including the Security Council, International Court of Justice, and Arab League, among others. This conference is known as the Spring Invitational Model United Nations, or SIMUN, and is slated to return due to popular demand in Spring 2021. Please read on for details about GLICA’s currently available conference offerings.
GLIMUN 2019 Conference
GLIMUN is a four-day simulation of a single session of the United Nations. Scheduled in late November or early December, GLIMUN is early in the MUN conference year, which makes it ideal to introduce first-time delegates to the MUN experience, or get your experienced delegates into full swing for the busy spring conference months! Our committees are an appropriate mix to get your delegates, both novice and experienced, revved up for the rest of the year.

SIMUN is a three-day conference with both a smaller scale and a more specialized focus. SIMUN is scheduled in the spring, and a diverse array of committee choices permits delegates to participate in debates about issues not normally covered at other conferences. GLICA is pleased to announce that, due to popular demand, SIMUN will be returning for the 2021 spring conference season!
