Why Attend GCMUN?

GCMUN 2025 is excited to announce that we will be hosting two separate conference sessions. Both sessions will offer identical experiences, although there might be variations in the committee staff board between them. Rest assured, the committees and topics will remain the same for both sessions. As for the schedule, there might be slight adjustments between sessions.

Which session to attend? The choice is yours, depending on your school or MUN club calendar! Pick the one that aligns best with your schedule.

Registration is open to Faculty Advisors with a valid district or school email address. We encourage you to provide two email addresses in the registration form: one for the Faculty Advisor and the other for the MUN Club or its Secretary General/Leader (student).
