Cornell International Affairs Conference (CIAC) is a Model United Nations Conference that attracts college students from schools all over the world. This year, we have worked to surpass our previous conferences by developing an experience that showcases our club’s hospitality and passion for international affairs. Our goal is to create an atmosphere that fosters lively debate, skilled diplomacy, and creative problem-solving. CIAC is unique in that its size allows for intense and engaging committees that match the diverse interests of delegates. Along with the variety of riveting debate discussions that CIAC offers, we have a number of exciting social events, which will allow delegates to bond outside the committee room. Bringing together students with a shared interest in global affairs, CIAC provides an excellent opportunity for participants to build lasting international networks. As planning for CIAC IV continues, the Secretariat is looking forward to potential partnerships and collaboration to make this conference a success.


Letter from Director of Finance Dear Prospective Sponsor, The fourth annual Cornell International Affairs Conference, also known as CIAC IV is a great sponsorship opportunity. CIAC is hosted by the Cornell International Affairs Society, one of the university’s largest student organizations, which also hosts the high school Cornell Model United Nations Conference (CMUNC). This year, CIAC will be held on the scenic Cornell campus from October 17th – 20th 2013. The conference is a four-day long affair during which, the participants engage in stimulating debate and negotiation. CIAC attracts over one hundred college students from domestic and international universities. Additionally, CIAC commands a large on-campus presence within the student body, and also engages upwards of fifty student staffers. Thus, CIAC provides sponsors with a prime opportunity to reach their target market. We strive to offer numerous and diverse ways of promoting your business by offering unmatched virtual exposure and on-site representation and presence leading up to and during the four-day conference. Opening and Closing Ceremonies, registration, the delegate handbook, and ciaconline.org, the conference’s official website are just a few of the opportunities we offer, which will engage the delegates, staffers, and members of the local community. Please take the time to review our sponsorship options to see if there is one that best fits your interests. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns; we are of course willing to accommodate and work with businesses to form a successful partnership. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Sincerely, Maris Hansen Director of Finance, CIAC IV
