During the Covid-19 pandemic, they started a student organization, Women in MUN, to help promote equity within Model UN through resource distribution, panel discussions, training conferences, and our monthly publication.

Archer Halbert SECRETARY-GENERAL OF GATORMUN XX
Hi! I'm Archer (they/them). I'm a geology major with a botany minor, and a long standing member of UF MUN! I've done MUN since high school school and got involved with the club right out of high school, directing, then being Director of Conference Logistics, to now being the Secretary General of the same conference I went to as a baby freshman in high school! How the tables turn. Outside of MUN, I'm a huge nerd--Marvel, Star Wars, Star Trek, D&D, all sorts of video games (Minecraft especially), but also all things space, LGBT history, and cold war history. I also love to write and am always looking for song recommendations. This year, I'm super excited to be hosting GatorMUN XX and closing off my senior year by being as involved as I can, while also imparting as many useless facts as I can onto everyone on E-board. Looking forward to a great year!

Max Banach DIRECTOR OF MEMBER DEVELOPMENT
Hey y'all! My name is Max (he/him), and I'm a second-year electrical engineering major. This is my 6th year in Model UN, and debating on the Florida and National Circuit has always been my favorite activity. In high school, I was colloquially titled the Dripmaster after winning the 'best dressed' superlative in nearly all of my committees - a title I continue to uphold in college. My favorite memory from MUN so far has been getting five 5-hour energies confiscated by my HS assistant principal before a conference my sophomore year. I look forward to serving as y’alls Director of Member Development and many more years competing with UFMUN!
