What is TechMUN?

TechMUN is the GTMUN Program’s student-run Collegiate Conference. It is named not only for Georgia Tech, but also for its nature as a technology-friendly conference! It occurs in the Spring semester in the Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons at the center of Tech’s beautiful campus.

The 2023 TechMUN Collegiate Conference will occur in March. Registration opens on September 30th.

How Registration Works

  1. Fill out the registration form. Please only fill out one form per delegation!
  2. In December, the background guides and delegate positions will be released (along with a position breakdown for the Crisis delegates). A form will also be released for delegations to rank their preferences for both General Assembly and Crisis committees. The open spots can be viewed on the Delegate Matrix that will also be posted in December. Positions will be assigned first come first served. Note: TechMUN Staff cannot guarantee the positions requested will be assigned. 
  3. Position papers will be accepted for the General Assembly delegates once positions have been assigned. Instructions on submitting papers will be posted in December. Position papers will be due a week after registration closes.  
  4. Conference check-in will occur at two times. Delegations can check-in at either time but must sign in to attend the conference. Early Conference check-in will occur the day before the start of committee, and Regular Conference check-in will occur before the opening ceremony. More information will be posted at the start of the spring semester. 

Committees

Delegates in the General Assembly work together to address current events, using the aid of technology to uncover the most recent information on the topics and to develop comprehensive resolutions.

Crisis

The Admiralty

Crisis delegates collaborate on multiple solutions as the committee progresses through an unpredictable timeline of events, using technology to implement their own personal goals.


Letter from the Secretary-General

Dear Esteemed Delegates and Faculty Advisors,

On behalf of the TechMUN Secretariat, Staff and GTMUN program, we thank you for attending TechMUN 2022 and making it a fantastic conference! TechMUN 2022 was our first in-person conference in years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Secretariat and Staff went above and beyond to restore TechMUN as it once was, and our conference was an incredible success. We are incredibly proud of the work our delegates put forth into their committees!

I am honored to be the Secretary-General of TechMUN 2023. I am incredibly inspired by all the efforts put in place from last year to keep TechMUN alive. This year, we strive to have the same motivation to make the TechMUN 2023 Collegiate Conference unforgettable. I look forward to the debate, comradery, and love for Model United Nations that you, the delegate, will bring!  

Please look out for updates regarding TechMUN 2023 as they come out. If you have any questions, please email kbook6@gatech.edu. We look forward to seeing you there!

Best regards, 

Katherine Book
Secretary-General of TechMUN 2023
