Register your Model UN team as soon as possible. Registration opens on December 1, 2016 and will close on February 8, 2017.
You must have at least one delegate per committee.
For example, if your register to represent the United States, and the U.S. is a member of 4 committees, at least one delegate must represent each one of the 4 committees, so you will need a minimum of 4U.S. delegates.
There can only be one delegate per committee, except for General Assembly and the World Health Organization.
You may have as many as two delegates for the General Assembly and the World Health Organization committees. However, only one delegate is allowed to represent their country during a session. During sessions, only one Head Delegate will be allowed to deliver the opening statement and speak on behalf of the country. The second delegate can switch roles and become the Head Delegate during another session but nor during a session where one delegate has already been acting as the Head Delegate.
Each group may choose only one Security Council country.
After you have registered your school, each delegate must complete the Individual Registration Form for insurance purposes.
If you have new students who are not yet comfortable with the idea of competing, they may choose to register as observers or pages. There is no fee if they register as such. They should indicate this choice on their registration form.
There must be one delegate per country who will represent that country as the Head Delegate and deliver the opening statement (only one per country).
Students must also indicate which council they will represent.
As the adviser, collect all completed forms, sign each one, and mail them with the per delegate fee to the mailing address on the form.
