We’ve made it! Another year, another conference in the books.
AMUN 2017 was the 28th Conference and a fantastically successful one, thanks in large part to the hard work of our representatives, faculty advisors, and staff members. We thought we’d wrap up 2017 with a quick review of the year and your accomplishments.

And with that, the Accords is going to take a month-long hiatus. We’ll see you again in February to bring you new, relevant and innovative Model UN content. In the meantime, take a look at our archives and take your best guesses at the topics we’ll be simulating in 2018. You might also think about writing a blog post or essay for the AMUN Accords. It’s a great way to stay connected to the MUN community throughout the year. We’d love to add you as a guest author!
From all of us here at AMUN, congratulations on a great 2017 and good luck as 2018 rolls in!
