A Letter from the Secretary General:

Dear delegates,

It is my absolute pleasure to invite you to the 24th Virginia International Crisis Simulation, the University of Virginia’s annual collegiate Model United Nations conference which is sponsored by the International Relations Organization at UVA. VICS XXIV will be held from March 28 to March 31st, 2019 at the University’s historic Grounds.

Each year, VICS offers innovative, interactive, and unique crisis committees which encourage delegates to pursue intricate crisis arcs. Historical committees, contemporary committees, and even fantasy committees ensure that VICS has a wide range of topics and time periods to choose from. Among these, VICS offers two renowned ad-hoc crisis committees and two joint-crisis committees. While committees have not yet been decided for VICS XXIV, our Chairs and Crisis Directors have already begun brainstorming exciting and intriguing ideas. Secretariat will be working closely with all conference staff to develop these ideas into engaging worlds for delegates to explore on conference weekend.

What’s more, VICS strives to provide fun social events for all delegates attending. The engaging committees and fun social events provide the perfect place for you to meet and befriend students from other colleges. This is my third year on VICS Secretariat, and that ability to debate in a unique committee while building strong friendships at our entertaining social events is what I love about VICS. I encourage you all to spend the weekend building those relationships and taking advantage of all the unique fun VICS has to offer.

I hope you enjoy conference weekend, the University, and Charlottesville. Should you have any question, please don’t hesitate to reach out via email at or through the “Contact" button next to this letter. I, my Secretariat, and the International Relations Organization look forward to getting to know you in March!
