General Assembly

Members of the AMUNC General Assembly First, Second, and Third Committees submit resolutions in advance of the conference. The Secretariat then sets the agenda from among the resolutions submitted by the member-state delegations.  

For the 2019 AMUNC, we have decided to cancel the GA Fourth Committee (i.e., the Environmental Committee) in an effort to increase the countries represented on the first three committees. We strongly encourage all committees to take up appropriate, environmentally-related resolutions at the conference. And, we will endeavor to incorporate them into Committee Agendas.

The resolutions shall be considered in the sequence in which they shall have been numbered by the Secretariat. "Considered" for this purpose means debated and acted upon (adopted, adopted with amendments, or rejected). To submit a resolution, please go the Resolution Writing & Submission page for more details and a resolution submission form.

The First Committee considers all political and security matters in the furtherance of international peace and security, and this includes the promotion of cooperative agreements and measures aimed at lowering levels of different types of armaments worldwide.
