Welcome to ILMUNC: the 30th session
What is ILMUNC?
Hosted by the International Affairs Association at the University of Pennsylvania, the Ivy League Model United Nations Conference (ILMUNC) is the premier Model United Nations conference for high school students. Each January, we gather students from around the world to participate in a weekend of stimulating debate, hands-on learning, and enjoyable activities in Philadelphia and on Penn’s scenic campus.

ILMUNC 30 was held from Thursday, January 30 to Sunday, February 2, 2014 at the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown Hotel, in the heart of the city of Brotherly Love.
Thank You from the Secretary-General
Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,
It's still hard to believe that ILMUNC 30 is over, but this has truly been one of the most incredible experiences of my entire life, and I hope that you all enjoyed the weekend as much as the Secretariat and I did. The robust debate, passionate discussion, and enthusiastic cooperation demonstrated impressed not only the secretariat, but the entire staff as well.
On behalf of everyone that helped run ILMUNC this year, I would like to take a moment to congratulate you all on a performance that has left a lasting impression on each and every one of us. You tackled problems that have stumped the world’s best and brightest, and you’ve done so with creativity and ingenuity. I want to thank you for all of the time you’ve put into researching, preparing, and participating in ILMUNC. When all is said and done, you all are what make this conference so incredible.
To the faculty advisors of ILMUNC 30: again, thank you for everything that you do. It's been a pleasure getting to know some of you, and your essential role in keeping everything together is not and has never been taken for granted.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (973) 714-4081. Next year's secretariat will be announced soon, and I have full faith that it will exceed all expectations.
