Note! NHSMUN will be offering an expanded set of training and preparation sessions, as well as practice simulations, the day prior to Day 1 of the conference. The sessions are available for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. If you are interested in a personalized training session for your students the day prior to the start of the conference, please contact us no later than January 1, 2017 to arrange the scheduling and content to be covered. We enjoy the ability to interact with students in advance of the conference, as we have found that it makes them more comfortable in committee sessions and enriches their conference experience.
Which Session Will I Attend?
Inevitably, schools will have different preferences regarding which session to attend. Based on the feedback of our historical attendees, there seems to be an even distribution in the interest of one session versus another. Some schools cited the number of days of missed classes as a factor, while others cited the prices of airfare over the given date patterns. Many schools stated they did not have a preference and wanted to attend whichever session allowed them to receive their top choice of country to represent. Regardless of your situation, we will do our best to accommodate your requests. As always, we cannot provide any guarantees, but please contact us to specify your preference so that we may make the necessary arrangements to accommodate you wherever possible. Both sessions will have the same programming and activities; likewise, students from both sessions will spend time at the United Nations Headquarters. Committees and topics will be the same at both sessions. Students and teachers can look forward to the same, top-quality level of debate as always, coupled with a number of annual enhancements to boost the overall delegate experience.
