What is Pre-Registration?
NHSMUN offers a Pre-Registration period to allow schools (or independent delegates) to reserve a certain number of seats for the conference, in advance of the regular fall (October) registration period. Faculty advisors have told us that pre-registration is helpful, particularly in school districts with slow administrative approval processes, as it allows them to begin their initial planning early. Specifically, during the Pre-Registration period, a school can request a certain number of seats, and we will commit to holding those seats until the end of September. At that point, the school can choose to confirm the seats and continue to the regular registration process (October 1), or release the seats entirely.
Regular Registration, which takes place from October 1-15, is the process through which schools or individual students formally request seats at the NHSMUN conference, along with their submissions of preferences for country and committee assignments. Schools that have already pre-registered will go directly to the country and committee request section.
What is the Process for Pre-Registration?
In order to pre-register for NHSMUN 2018, complete the form located to the right. You will list your group's basic contact information and the number of seats you would like to reserve for NHSMUN 2018. You may also indicate a session preference, if you already have one. Once our team reviews your request, we will provide you with confirmation that we are holding your seats, and that you may begin any planning or coordination that you require. We will hold your seats until the end of September, at which point you will either confirm your seats or release them in advance of the October 1 registration start date.
You may change your number of reserved seats or your session preferences at any time during pre-registration by emailing us or by filling out the form again.
Please note: You are not required to Pre-Register for seats for NHSMUN 2018; it is a service we offer for those groups desiring advance confirmation that they will be accepted to one of the two sessions of NHSMUN 2018. Not participating in Pre-Registration does not affect the ultimate outcome of your registration or your chances of receiving your preferred country assignment. It is merely an opportunity to reserve seats in advance of the normal registration period.
If you have any questions about Pre-Registration or NHSMUN 2018 overall, please contact Allison Koehler at firstname.lastname@example.org. We realize that each group has unique needs and requests, and we pride ourselves on our commitment to meeting those requests to the very best of our ability.
