Summer Training Session

Dear all,

The training session will take place on Saturday, August 8th from 12:00pm to 4:00PM

Instead of the mock that was supposed to take place at the Minnie B. Veal Community Center, a training session dealing with crisis and GA committees will be held at Roshan's house (415 Durham Ave Edison NJ 08817) from 12:00PM to 4:00PM instead.

At this meeting we'll be expanding on the overlooked yet crucial concepts of MUN, showing the best ways to prepare and act in committee, as well as holding a few engaging debate simulations. Attendance to this training session is crucial for anyone who hopes to succeed this year as a JPSMUN delegate 

Note: Most GPS's will lead you to 415 Durham Ave in South Plainfield. If you're having trouble reaching Roshan's house give him a call at 908-565-0889.

Also, bring $5 for pizza!

Best Regards,

Summer Training Sessions!

Dear All,

The JPSMUN summer training program has finally begun! Our first mock will most likely take place on Friday, July 17th at the Metuchen EMS hall from 9AM to 3PM (subject to change).

 Since we have rented out a hall and will provide food, those who are attending must bring $8 with them upon arrival. Also, understanding that it is scorching hot outside, please DO NOT wear western business attire to the mock.

If you have any further questions about anything pertaining to this mock, do not hesitate to ask us. For all those who have not received an assignment, but wishes to participate in the mock conference, please let an Eboard member know!

We hope all of you take this opportunity to shine as JPSMUN delegates.

Best Regards,
