ASMMUN 2020 Speakers
For our 2020 conference, we made the decision to move ASMMUN online. This brought exciting new possibilities to differentiate committees by providing the opportunity for each to interact with expert speakers relevant to the topics they discussed. With that in mind, instead of a single keynote, we welcomed a set of guests to speak with our delegates. These talks were followed by a chance to ask questions (moderated by the Chairs), and some lobbying time for delegates to update their positions in light of new firsthand understanding.
