46 Years of Excellence


Dear Delegates and Advisors,

On behalf of the Georgetown International Relations Association and the entire conference Secretariat, we could not be more ecstatic to welcome you to the 46th iteration of the National Collegiate Security Conference. Across forty six years of history, NCSC has represented the pinnacle of modern and realistic Model United Nations competition. Our location in the nation’s capital, exceptional staff sourced from one of the world’s leading institutions in international affairs, and attendance by delegates from the most competitive teams across North America have always distinguished NCSC as a conference of unmatched quality. We would be honored to host your delegation from October 18th-21st, 2018.

This year, NCSC will be changing locations to the beautiful DoubleTree by Hilton in Crystal City, VA. NCSC’s move brings delegates within ten minutes of the heart of downtown D.C., including the Capitol, White House, and Washington Monument. In addition to the allure of the day-to-day operations of the most powerful leaders in the world, this historical city also boasts a vibrant entertainment scene through an abundance of the best restaurants, bars, clubs, and music venues in the country.

Beyond our prime location, the heart of NCSC is in the unparalleled caliber of our committees. This year, we are expanding our crisis offerings and adding a new crisis organ that allows for the addition of over ninety crisis positions to the conference. Delegates will have the opportunity to grapple with the intricacies of post World War II power in the Bohemian Grove, navigate the challenges of a cabinet in crisis in 1994 Mexico, or recreate one of the most dramatic political breaks in history in the Sino-Soviet Split Joint Crisis Committee. Through this expansion, NCSC is renewing its commitment to the the highest caliber of modern, realistic, and security-focused committees on the circuit.

Perhaps most importantly of all, this conference would not be possible without the team of over one hundred and fifty dedicated and experienced Georgetown staff members that are already working hard to ensure that NCSC is unrivaled in the merit of its committees. In addition, our Secretariat is working tirelessly to ensure that your NCSC XLVI experience will be one of a lifetime, and we cannot wait to welcome you to our nation’s capital for what is sure to be the strongest chapter yet in a five decade history of excellence.  

All the best,

Suraag Srinivas
