This is a unique and high caliber one-day Model UN Conference. It’s an excellent way to ‘kick-off’ the 2019-2020 season!
The Global Leadership Conference provides delegates with an exciting first Model UN Conference of the school year. This is a NO PREP conference in which students receive an abridged topic guide and country profile on the day of the conference and 30-minute preparation block before the start of committee.
Below is a brief Q and A to help you learn a little more about the event:
What is the committee/topic? General Assembly, Solving the Cholera Epidemic in Haiti
Is this a middle or high school conference? This conference is open to both middle and high school teams. They will be separate committee rooms.
When will delegates find out their countries? Once delegates arrive at the conference they will be assigned a country and be given a half-hour to prepare their country positions and opening statements.
Are there position papers? No – not for this conference
Do students need to travel with an advisor? Yes – an advisor must accompany their students and is responsible for taking them to lunch at one of the many wonderful options just a short walk away (map and lunch guide will be provided). We recommend that each student brings about $10 for lunch.
My school doesn’t have a Model UN team, but I’d like to attend…are independent teams invited? Yes! Independent teams are invited to attend. A minimum of 2 delegates and an advisor are the only requirements. Parent advisors welcome!
What is the cost of registration? The school sign-up fee is $100; the individual delegate fee is $65 (funding is available for Title I qualifying schools). Once a school has completed the school sign up, the UNAGB will send an invoice to the advisor for the individual delegate fees.
What is the refund policy? The team fee of $100 is non-refundable. Delegate fees ($65) may be refunded until a week before the event.
