Dearest Delegates, Advisors, Chaperones, and Parents,

It is my greatest honor and privilege to welcome you to PACMUN 2020.

This November, PACMUN will open the doors of the Sheraton Grand Hotel to over 700 delegates from the Pacific Northwest and North America, offering 17 hand-picked committees for a weekend of engaging debate in the heart of downtown Seattle.

PACMUN was founded in 2014 as the first student-run hotel conference in Washington State, and since then has maintained the spirit of a conference run by students, for students. Every delegate will find a committee tailored to their interests and skill level, whether it be the pertinent United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime or the ever-evolving and unpredictable Future Crisis Committee. Between committee sessions, delegates will have the opportunity to unwind at our Delegate Social or explore Seattle's countless attractions before once again contending with paramount global issues.

In our era of increasing globalization and interconnectivity, the lessons taught by Model United Nations are more important than ever. My hope is that delegates walk away from PACMUN with a newfound understanding of their ability to respond to pressing global issues and tackle humanity’s biggest challenges head-on. Through Model United Nations, delegates are no longer merely students: instead, they assume the roles of tomorrow’s leaders and decision-makers, honing the skills of collaboration, negotiation, and diplomacy. Alongside leadership, delegates have the invaluable opportunity to reach out and form meaningful connections with students from other schools, states, and backgrounds. PACMUN hopes to foster not just a conference, but a community of young individuals with a shared passion for positively impacting our ever-changing world.

As we head into our seventh year of PACMUN, I invite delegates to challenge themselves as global leaders, thinkers, and community-builders. Only by bridging our divides can we find common ground, and only together can we shape a brighter future.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at I cannot wait to see each and every one of you at PACMUN 2020!

All the best,


Spring Chenjp
