Mar. 12 Statement on COVID-19
Dear delegates, staff, and families,
In light of recent concerns surrounding COVID-19, we would like to emphasize our commitment to ensuring a safe, successful, and educational experience for all those involved. Hinsdale Model UN senior staff will be closely monitoring the developments regarding COVID-19. We are also working with Hyatt Hotels Corporation to update our refund policy if we are forced to cancel and will alert you as soon as we have made that decision.
Having had extensive discussion amongst staff and having closely monitored local, state, and federal guidelines, our overall concern level is low at this current time, seeing the conference is still a number of months away.
Hinsdale Model UN recognizes the fluidity of COVID-19 and its impact on hosting events in public spaces. As the H-MUN III conference and New Delegate training courses are due to take place in June and July of 2020, we are not yet able to make any determinations about cancellation or closure.
We have been closely monitoring the various updates that health organizations and agencies:
Because there is no governing organization for Model UN (MUN) conferences, we will be monitoring the action of other local and national MUN conferences at this time and consult with local officials to assess the situation. We will also have to follow the direction of the Hyatt Hotels Corporation if they decide to take action closer to the date.
We will continue to update you with future information and will continue to reassess.
