The General Assemblies
The Blue, the Scarlet, and the Silver have formed the backbone of MeDMUN since the conference began. These committees feature a security topic and either an economic or a social topic. The GAs are large enough to allow a variety of opinions to be presented, but small enough so that all delegates are able to participate. Our GAs serve as the introduction to Model UN for most delegates and our GA staffers are trained to help ease them into Model UN.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Undersecretary General, Alison Shereda

The Regional Bodies
Our Regional Bodies began simulating at MeDMUN III in 2018. They were founded in order to increase the opportunities for delegates to represent countries from across the world and to force these delegates to contextualize pressing issues outside the direct framework of the United Nations. In this way, delegates will be able to tackle more specific issues in smaller committee sizes. Our Regional Bodies will often have short crisis simulations in order to keep the delegates on their toes.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Undersecretary General for the Regional Bodies, Sydney McKinstry
The Organization of American States

The Specialized Agencies
Our Specialized Committees were begun at MeDMUN II. These committees are smaller in size, 20-30 delegates but are more competitive than our General Assemblies. These committees tackle more specific issues and can include the introduction of crisis simulations to help delegates to better understand aspects of the topics.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Undersecretary General for the Specialized Agencies, Jordan Phillips
The United Nations Security Council
Topic A: Evaluating Measures to Enforce International Law and Treaties
Topic B: The Situation in Burundi
The Ad-Hoc: Paris Peace Conference 1919
Topic A: The Situation in Eastern Europe
Topic B: Crisis
The Crisis Committees
MeDMUN V will hold MeDMUN's first crisis committee ever. Crisis committees are 15-25 delegates and are highly competitive, best suited for delegates with some experience in crisis or highly experienced delegates looking to learn more about crisis committees. Rather than tackling a series of issues through debate and passing a resolution as a county, delegates will be responding to real-time updates playing the role of historical figures.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Undersecretary General for Crisis, Julia Iaquinto
