Simulation Participation Fees
We are very concerned about keeping your expenses to a minimum. Therefore, the participation fee will be $50 per delegation.

We want to provide participants with a quality educational experience. Delegation size will be five (5) one delegate for the 3 committees, an additional if on the Security Council and or Commission on the Status of Women. If you do not have a security council or CSW seat you are still allowed 5 students. You need to fill delegate committee seats first but if you have additional students in your delegation you are welcome to pair students on the GA Plenary and GA First Committees.
Expectations of Delegates
Delegates are expected to conduct themselves, at all times, in a manner befitting international diplomats. This means that every courtesy, both in speaking and behavior, is to be extended to all representatives, faculty, guests, committee chairs and conference staff.
