GLIMUN 2024 Conference

GLIMUN is a four-day simulation of a single session of the United Nations. Scheduled for the first week in 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.

The right size for you

Unlike some of the other regional and national conferences offered throughout the conference year, GLIMUN is the ideal size for delegates of varied skill levels. Our GA committees have approximately 70 delegates, and ECOSOC committees are slightly smaller with approximately 50-60 delegates. 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. GLIMUN committees are intentionally sized so that advisors can observe delegates in action, both in caucus and formal debate. 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

GLIMUN is a four-day conference, beginning on Wednesday evening and ending Saturday afternoon. From Opening through Closing Session, delegates are at the forefront of our conference. Delegates will begin by engaging in committee debate, join together with their fellow representatives for a plenary session later in the week, and have the opportunity to participate in delegate activities each evening. We will recognize outstanding performances by individual delegates and full delegations at our Closing Ceremony. Our staff will also gladly make school visits throughout the school year to assist in conference preparation.
