Video calling platform
November 21-22, 2020
PACMUN 2020 will be using Slack servers integrated with Zoom to facilitate delegate debate and discussion. Slack is a messaging platform where delegates will be placed into committee-specific text channels to communicate with Staff members and other delegates in lieu of note-passing. Zoom is a video conferencing platform for audio and video calls, and Slack integration allows Staff and delegates to start video calls with the press of a button. Delegates will be invited to the Slack workspace prior to the conference after assignment of country position and payment of invoices.
Please note that Delegates must have the Zoom application downloaded before the conference in order to start Zoom meetings. More information regarding our virtual platforms, such as logistics and tutorials, will be available on our Resources page as the conference approaches!
From where we learn to where we work, Rosalind Wiseman fosters civil dialogue and inspires communities to build strength, courage and purpose. She is the founder of Cultures of Dignity; an organization that shifts the way communities think about our physical and emotional wellbeing by working in close partnership with the experts of those communities–young people, educators, policy makers, and business and political leaders. National media regularly depends on Wiseman’s expertise on ethical leadership, conflict, media literacy, youth culture, parenting, and bullying prevention. She has been profiled in The New York Times, People, Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, and USA Today. Wiseman is a frequent guest on national media like The Today Show, CNN, and NPR affiliates throughout the country.
How can you use the skills you've learned from PACMUN in college and beyond? Join us for our inaugural PACMUN Alumni Panel on Sunday, November 22nd from 1-2PM, featuring former PACMUN delegates, staff, and Secretariat members involved in business, politics, and international relations. Hear how they navigated high school, found their passions, and use what they learned from PACMUN to make change in their communities.
No refunds will be given unless the conference does not occur or cancellation arises from medical issues, force majeure, or other circumstances arising beyond reasonable control. Refunds will be honored upon full cancellation of the event; full cancellation does not include postponement of the event. Cases will be reviewed on an individual basis.
During all seminar and committee sessions, the use of cellular devices is prohibited. They are required to be turned off or placed in silent mode unless they are being used to join the virtual committee.
Inappropriate messaging, any form of harassment, verbal abuse, bullying, and/or the distribution of explicit materials through conference channels (i.e. through either Zoom, official PACMUN Slack workspaces, or any additional correspondence pertaining to PACMUN) will result in the Secretariat being notified immediately and potential removal from committee.
Delegates are encouraged to collaborate on draft resolutions using online document sharing tools; however the Secretariat and Staff will not distribute delegates’ personal information to aid in this collaboration.
