Sam O'Brien - Secretary-General - SRMUN Atlanta 2016
Dear Future Delegates and Esteemed Advisors,
My name is Sam O’Brien and I have the esteemed honor of serving as the Secretary- General of SRMUN Atlanta 2016. On behalf of the entire staff, it is my privilege to welcome you all to SRMUN Atlanta 2016. The conference is moving in new and exciting directions and it is my distinct privilege to be the first to share them with you.
SRMUN is the premier Model United Nations conference in the southern United States and we are moving back to a premier location. This year’s conference will take place at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel in the heart of downtown Atlanta. SRMUN is continuing to grow as a conference and we are excited to bring it to a location in which delegates can enjoy their surroundings.
Delegate involvement and global education has always been a significant goal of SRMUN and we have expanded our Consulate program to fit this goal. With the conference’s prime location, many consulates are housed in the surrounding city area. Delegates representing a Member State with a participating consulate in the city will have the opportunity to see the consulate buildings and have a question and answer session with their consulate. Not only will this help students grow as delegates but also encourage them to grow as a world citizen.
It is with great excitement that I reveal this year’s theme: “The United Nations Post- 2015 Agenda: Peace, Security and Development for a Sustainable It is my hope that delegates are challenged by this theme and consider all aspects of it when crafting solutions to the topics presented to them. It is common to discuss developing international peace for all people, but in order to achieve this it is equally important to also discuss the importance of creating a sustainable future for all. As Ban Ki Moon said, “This Earth is our only home. Together we must protect it and cherish it.”
Registration for SRMUN Atlanta 2016 is now open. To all delegations returning to us it is my pleasure to welcome you back and for those joining us for the first time, welcome to what is sure to be an exciting and rewarding conference for all. I encourage you all to register early as Member States are bound to fill quickly with the exciting new location and expansion of SRMUN Atlanta.
If you have any questions about registration, the hotel or any further inquiries about the conference please send me and email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
