About the TIMEMUN conference:

The Israel Middle East Model United Nations (TIMEMUN) conference takes place in mid-February every year at the Walworth Barbour American International School in Even Yehuda, Israel. Our first conference took place in 2000, and we have grown from a small event with only a few participating schools into an event which hosts 50 schools (Israeli Jewish and Arab schools, and international) and close to 600 participants in 2019.

Each committee has two presiding chairs. Over the course of 3 days, there are 5-6 committee sessions in which delegates will discuss two major issues. A guest speaker is also invited to each committee to bring some real world expertise into the discussion.

This year, the conference will be held virtually, using Zoom and Google Classroom.

Technology:

  • In TIMEMUN 2022, we will be using Google Classroom to collaborate on documents. All Google Classroom interactions in all committee sessions are recorded and saved online.

Please note the following instructions:

  1. In order to participate, all students and advisors must be using gmail.com addresses (except WBAIS students who use wbais.net addresses).

  2. Committee chairs will send Google Classroom invitations to every member in their committee. Accepting the invitation will give access to the committee classroom.

  3. All participants must be respectful in both spoken and written language; Directors and Officers will be moving between committees to make sure that the TIMEMUN Code of Conduct is being observed.

  4. Remain in character by consistently advocating the interests and representing the policies of the country/organization assigned. To act in character also entails displaying respect for the opinions and ideas of fellow delegates, even if these opinions and ideas conflict with a given delegate’s own country’s priorities.

In TIMEMUN 2022, we will be using Zoom to conduct debate. All Zoom meetings in all committee sessions will be recorded and saved online.

Please note the following instructions:

  1. Make sure you are using the latest version of Zoom.

    When you are in committee, change your Zoom profile name to reflect your position in TIMEMUN (for instance: if Adam Cohen is representing Brazil in his committee, his name will be BRAZIL not Adam Cohen).

    Do not use photos as screen backgrounds. The only acceptable background will be that of the flag of the delegation the delegates are representing.

    Whenever you are in a committee session, please keep your microphone off and your camera on.

    The procedure for sending notes:

    Write your note in Zoom chat.

    The first line should indicate who the note is for (for example, TO: the delegate of Israel, or TO: Senator Amy Klobuchar). It is then followed by your message

    Send the note to your committee admin, who will read your note.

    If the note is appropriate, it will then be forwarded to the relevant person.

    If the note is not acceptable either because of content or language, it will be sent to the Committee Chair and you will be asked to meet with the chair. In appropriate notes will result in a warning and, if the practice continues, can result in suspension or expulsion from the conference.

    Your chair will explain how Zoom will be used in your committee for voting.
