GLICA Virtual Conference

GLICA Virtual Conference is a one-day simulation designed to provide a self-contained Model UN experience entirely through videoconference technology. Scheduled on an on-demand basis, GLICA Virtual Conference committees are capped at no more than 30 students each, permitting a dynamic committee experience while ensuring that all delegates can participate fully.

The right size for you

Unlike some of the other regional and national conferences offered throughout the conference year, GLICA Virtual Conference is the ideal size for delegates of varied skill levels. Our committees have approximately 20-30 delegates, permitting a balance of committee size and regional diversity. Our goal is to create committees that are large enough to provide divergent ideas in each committee, but not so large that delegates have little chance to actually be recognized on the general speakers’ list.

The “no wallflowers” approach

We at GLICA know that advisors need to be able to assess each of their delegates on their level of participation, preparation, and skill. GLICA Virtual Conference committees are intentionally sized so that advisors can observe delegates in action, both in caucus and formal debate, within the limits of the “virtual” experience. They are also the right size for our committee staff to observe delegate participation. Our staff follows a “no wallflowers” approach; we encourage delegates to actively engage with their committees through both formal and informal debate.

Conference Details

GLICA Virtual Conference is a one-day conference, beginning on Saturday morning and ending Saturday evening. From the opening of committee through the final gavel, delegates are at the forefront of our conference. Delegates will experience a full working day of debate, resolution writing, and problem-solving within the UN system. We will recognize outstanding performances by individual delegates at our Closing Ceremony. Our staff will also gladly make school visits throughout the school year to assist in conference preparation.
