Delegate Preparation

Please visit our Committees and Topics page for substantive preparation materials, including Background Guides.

Delegate Preparation Guide

Northwest Model United Nations provides the Delegate Preparation Guide annually to help team leadership and individual delegates to prepare for the conference. The Delegate Preparation Guide includes everything other than the background information on the committees and topics - this information is available in the committee background guides. Specifically, the Delegate Preparation Guide includes the rules of procedure, floor plans and room assignments, and the delegate code of conduct, among other information.

Delegate Preparation and Training Session

Additionally, the conference facilitates a Delegate Preparation and Training Session on the first day of the conference, just prior to Opening Ceremonies.  This session is open to everyone who wishes to attend - we especially encourage delegates who have never done MUN before, and those who have participated in other conferences but who have never attended NWMUN conferences before, to attend.
