Letter from the Secretariat

Dear Delegates and Moderators,


It is our greatest pleasure to welcome you to the fifth annual City of Palms Model United Nations Conference (COPMUN) held on April 26, 2021. We look forward to meeting everyone at the conference this April!


Model UN serves as an outlet for high school students to participate in interactive democratic debates, preparing them for their future in a variety of diverse fields. Knowing this, the

Secretariat provides a challenging, diplomatic experience for all delegates.


This year, at City of Palms Model United Nations Conference held at Bishop Verot Catholic High School, we will focus on contestable topics that challenge delegates to follow their representative country’s foreign policy. Our topics are versatile and encourage delegates to develop comprehensive resolution papers. As the Secretariat, we will ensure a complex, academic experience allowing delegates to debate controversial international issues using diplomatic measures.


All registration will be electronically submitted by the deadline of April 16, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. The Secretariat can be reached at copmunbvhs@gmail.com. We look forward to seeing everyone in April and enjoying the fifth annual COPMUN alongside the delegates, moderators, and staff.
