Dear special participants of HPALMUN;

It is my utmost pleasure to welcome you all to the second conference which Haydarpaşa High School will be holding. As the head of the Organization Team, I would like to state that all the members of the group and I are putting a great effort to make sure that you will have a great and memorable time in our conference.

Since the first MUN in 1949, thousands of people have shared some amazing experiences. Now, so many people around the world are learning something new in every conference, improving their social skills and of course, making new friends. And especially in socializing, in every conference, organization teams play a huge part.

As the Academic Team and also the Organisation team we have been working hard and trying to do our best to make sure for you to have your most awesome and unforgettable experience.

Organizing social events at which participants get to know each other, or entertaining coffee breaks which will host some unique challanges are mainly what my team is responsible from. I can promise in behalf of my team that you will have four amazing days full of laughter and joy.

With the hopes of sharing my dream with all of you.
