The Ivy League Model United Nations Conference in Peru

Welcome to ILMUNC Perú II

Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,

It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to the second session of the Ivy League Model United Nations Conference Peru. My name is Fernando Fernandez and I am privileged to be serving as Secretary-General for this historic conference. Over the past 30 years, ILMUNC has built a reputation as one of the premier Model UN conferences in the world. With each of our conferences, we strive to bring a level of quality and rigor that is unmatched at any other conference. Our commitment to intellectual debate and highly substantive committees has allowed us to bring a unique Model UN experience to tens of thousands of high school students and we are excited to be able to bring that experience to Peru. We hope that you saw that in our first session of ILMUNC Perú, and are ready for an even larger session full of stimulating debate from the moment we open the second session of ILMUNC Perú.

ILMUNC Peru II will take place from November 23-26, 2017 in Lima, Peru. Undergraduates from the centuries-old Ivy League institution, the University of Pennsylvania, will chair every committee. These students have demonstrated a passion for international affairs and strong knowledge of Model UN through their experience as members of the prestigious International Affairs Association at the University of Pennsylvania. Our directors are excited for the opportunity to bring their deep experience in the realm of Model UN to Peru and to interact with students from Latin America.

In addition to world-class directors and committees, ILMUNC Peru will offer a host of social events and enrichment activities outside of committee. Students will not only become well-versed in Model UN, but will also have the opportunity to learn about university life in the United States, Ivy League university admissions, and other unique insights offered by our directors. We hope to make ILMUNC Peru II a holistic experience, in which each student is able to benefit from the experience of our diverse staff, and form new relationships that will last well beyond closing ceremonies.

Lastly, ILMUNC is proud to be partnering with Promotora Internacional de Debates (PRIDE) Peru, Peru's leading Model UN organization, in order to organize and run this conference. With PRIDE's extensive history in cultivating and growing the Model UN community in Peru, their expertise will be invaluable in running a successful conference.

I encourage all of you to explore our website and please reach out with any questions. I speak for our entire secretariat when I say that we are excited to see you all in Lima this November!

Best Regards,
