Delegates, Faculty Advisors and Guests:

It is my greatest honor to welcome you to the 16th Washington State Model United Nations (WASMUN) conference held from March 3rd to 4th, 2018 at the beautiful University of Washington in Seattle, WA.

With the conference taking place in the Pacific Northwest, and keeping in mind the Sustainable Development Goals, WASMUN 2018 will focus on the theme “building a more sustainable future together”. This year, we are excited to offer 7 diverse committees, from the traditional General Assembly and International Court of Justice, to the new Convention of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. In accordance with its mission statement, WASMUN 2018 will 1) foster delegates’ understanding of the most pressing issues facing the international community today; 2) give each delegate the opportunity to improve their technical skills, such as public speaking, writing and researching; and 3) allow all delegates to collaborate and cooperate with others in reaching a common goal.

Regarding logistics, early registration will open in early December. We recommend registering early in order to receive your preferred spots for the conference. Regular registration will open in early to mid-January and close in late February. We also advise you to register as soon as you have the minimum number of delegates attending. Please note that registration does not mean you must have a fixed number of delegates planning to attend the conference. In other words, we are always happy to give you more spots if you find that more of your students wish to attend. In addition, if your delegation wishes to stay at a hotel, booking with a discounted rate of $179 per night iis available until January 2nd, 2018 with the code WASMUN 2018 at hotel University Inn. 

Again, on behalf of the Executive Secretariat, I welcome you to WASMUN 2018. We guarantee an engaging, unique and memorable conference for all attending, whether new or experienced. Finally, we cannot wait to meet you all in the spring!

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Building a More Sustainable Future Together

“With the conference taking place in the Pacific Northwest, and keeping in mind the 2015 Sustainable Development Goals, this year's WASMUN is focusing on diversity and inclusivity. The wide range of committees chosen for WASMUN this year aims to reflect the importance of sustainable development. Additionally, the diversity of committees aim to show the interlinkages between the social, economic and political pillars of sustainable development. Each of these three dimensions is crucial for promoting the development of all.”
