As Team Conference Officer, we are responsible for a number of things, including the planning and logistics. This means that we are taking care of planning the conference and making sure it runs smoothly. We make sure everyone knows where they need to be and when. Besides that we recruit and train a capable Admins staff, who will support the debate. Together with Team Hospitality, we are also responsible for the lunch.
We hope to welcome you to FAMUN 2020!


REGISTRATION

Part of Team Registration’s job is to stay in contact with the delegates at all times. Delegates can email us with any questions or concerns they have about FAMUN. In return, we will provide them with the information they need and will then regularly inform them about the conference. We have to make sure all delegates are well prepared to attend FAMUN. We also manage the MyMUN page where different delegates or delegations can register for the conference. Another part of our job, together with the secretariat, is to pick the chairs who will attend FAMUN and assign them to the different committees. Should you have any questions about FAMUN you can email us at contact@famun.nl. We all look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you at FAMUN 2020!


HOUSING

Team Housing is responsible for the accommodation of all delegates, if they wish to receive it. This includes Hostels and Host Families. Both of these options are great choices! Transport is also part of our job, and we try to make this go as smoothly as possible. This also includes the transport to and from the Ceremony venue. In order to choose how you wish to be housed, you can contact us via housing@famun.nl. You can find more information about our work on the housing page.
We hope to see you all at FAMUN 2020!

During the preparations of FAMUN 2020 and during the conference itself, Team Ceremonies will take care of both the Opening and Closing Ceremony. These ceremonies will include interesting keynote speakers, amazing acts and impressive videos! The ceremonies will be presented by our lovely Masters of Ceremonies. Team Ceremonies has already started working on all of this, and we hope to meet you at the Opening Ceremony of FAMUN 2020!


PRESS

The Press team is readily available to shape FAMUN. We create the face of the conference and make sure possible delegates receive the best possible impression of the conference. This is done by creating a beautiful site, maintaining our social media channels, gorgeous photos and breathtaking videos. The design of the conference is part of our task as well. Do you remember our bottles, pens, folders, flags, lanyards, badges and placards? All of these items were designed by team press. We also make sure that we do not run out of these items. We count the items and order any item we need to make sure attendees of FAMUN can take home more than just memories! You will also see team press running around with cameras, taking photos and recording videos. These will be used for FAMUN TV on YouTube, social media and the site.
We sincerely hope to be able to welcome you, come February 2020!

Team Finance is in charge of the finance of FAMUN. They control the budget and keep track of all the money that comes in and goes out. When other teams want to spend money for the conference, team Finance will need to approve first. They also take care of the invoices for the schools. If you wish for any further information or if you have any questions, please mail to finance@famun.nl.  It’s important to look out for the payment deadline.
We, team finance, hope to see you at FAMUN 2020!


HOSPITALITY

As team hospitality, we’ll be organising an amazing party to get everyone’s minds off debating! We are also going to organise speaking workshops for everyone in order to get every delegate comfortable in their own committee. Furthermore, we’ll be taking care of a delicious cupcake corner with different kinds of hand baked cupcakes and brownies. We are going to organise a tour throughout our wonderful city Amersfoort for all the attending MUN-directors, and for all our StOff, we’ll have an amazing StOff-dinner. We’ll also manage to thank everyone that helped us make FAMUN 2020 a wonderful experience. Last but not least, we’ll ensure everyone has a delicious lunch together with team Conference Officer.
We are all looking forward to meeting you in February!


RESEARCH

It is obvious that team research does a lot of research for FAMUN, but we do much more than that. We also make sure the debates keep going, and remain interesting for the delegates. Next to that, we decide on the main theme, all the committees and topics, what countries are present in which debate and who gets appointed which country. You could say that we influence a lot of your MUN-experience, but we hope to make the best of it! Our main goal is to make FAMUN educative, interesting, challenging and memorable for you.
