Now in its fifth year, we are looking forward to expand the size, dynamic, and quality of the conference. The members of the staff are an essential of a delegate's experience and the overall success of the conference. In the years past, our staff have come from various academic backgrounds, but all share a common desire to share their passion of international relations with high school students. This year we are particularly excited to be introducing interconnected committees and conference wide crises. We are looking for individuals who are creative, passionate, and dedicated to make this year's AmeriMUNC the best one yet.
