UBCMUN is Hiring

The University of British Columbia’s Model United Nations 2014 is hiring!

The University of British Columbia Model United Nations (UBCMUN) first began in 1993 as
a pilot project of the International Relations Student Association (IRSA). It has grown from
a small conference, held on UBC’s campus, to Western Canada’s largest collegiate Model
United Nations. Held at one of Vancouver’s most elegant hotels, UBCMUN is now an IRSA
flagship event and draws delegates from all over the Pacific Northwest.
We invite you to be part of this dynamic team of student volunteers to make the 21st
annual UBCMUN assembly the best one yet. Previous Model UN experience is not necessary for
a number of these positions, so we urge anyone interested to take advantage of this
opportunity and apply.
