PACMUN’s mission is to spread awareness of the United Nations, to motivate students to become more actively involved in local and global affairs, and to inspire students to change the world. PACMUN was founded to empower student leaders in the community. PACMUN started as a collaborative effort between delegates from Tacoma, Kent, Bellevue, Issaquah, and Seattle. The secretariat and staff consist completely of high-school students, who have both the drive and the experience to make PACMUN an amazing conference.
PACMUN began as a student run conference in 2014. The idea was conceived by seven extraordinary students to make a universally accessible MUN conference to all students in the Pacific Northwest. PACMUN is the first student-run conference in Washington State, and in its inaugural year, it became the largest conference in the state. The conference has grown since then, with the leadership of new secretariats and the guidance from years past.

The MUN Northwest Media Internship is a year-round internship where interns create and design a variety of promotional/marketing materials and media for all of MUN Northwest’s conferences in the form of photography, videos, social media posts, and more. The MUN Northwest Media Internship is a unique opportunity for high schoolers to grow their skills through on-site and off-site long-term media projects.
The 2020-21 MUN Northwest Media Internship application will open in May 2020 and any questions can be directed to Katherine Holo, at email@example.com.
PACMUN is part of Model United Nations Northwest, a student-run organization that provides the resources for conferences and schools in the Pacific Northwest
Each year, a unique Secretariat is selected to prepare for each individual conference; these dynamic teams of high school students work diligently year-round to craft a website, develop systems for registration, write committee background guides, search for grants and sponsors, promote conferences on social media, negotiate agreements with hotels in the downtown Seattle area, and much more. Each Secretariat is overseen by the MUN Northwest Board of Directors, made up of former Secretariat members, founding members, and experienced members of the MUN community in the Pacific Northwest.
