70th Annual Session
It is with much sadness that Model United Nations of the Far West is announcing the postponement of the Seventieth Annual Session until April 2021. This decision was not made lightly, as we know the hard work and planning that each your teams has put into preparing for this year’s conference. The Executive Officers of the MUNFW, Inc. Board of Directors, the Executive Director, and our Faculty Membership Chair have been actively monitoring the development of the COVID-19 outbreak in San Francisco and the surrounding region, meeting regularly for the past few weeks, and are basing our decision on a number of factors. Among them, our choice is based on the recent guidance from the San Francisco Department of Public Health to cancel large gatherings and events to limit community spread of the disease.
Model United Nations of the Far West is steadfast in its commitment to ensuring the safety of our students and to providing the best possible academic experience (which includes a robust, well-attended conference).
Model United Nations of the Far West has been working diligently over the past year to develop new programs and opportunities for students at conference, and we are deeply saddened that we will not be able to share those with you this April. However, it is the dedication and effort of the faculty and students that has made this conference exceptional for the past seventy years. We look forward to seeing you next year to continue that work.
In the words of Dag Hammarskjold, the second Secretary-General of the United Nations, “For all that has been, thank you! For all that is to come, yes!”
