Delegation SIZE

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

Conduct

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. MKCMUN reserves the right to expel any delegate not acting in a courteous and professional fashion. Please see committee etiquette

 

The Dress Code Guidelines are as follows:

Women: Standard female delegate attire for the conference is business jacket, skirt or slacks, button blouse, and dress shoes. Shirts that expose excessive bare skin on the chest, stomach or are otherwise revealing are inappropriate. Clothes that reveal undergarments are inappropriate.

Men: Standard male delegate attire for the conference is business jacket, slacks, button down shirt with tie and dress shoes. Shirts that expose excessive bare skin on the chest, stomach or are otherwise revealing are inappropriate. Clothes that reveal undergarments are inappropriate. Facial hair should be shaved or trimmed neatly. Dress sweaters are generally considered too casual, as well as shorts, ball caps, jeans, sneakers and sunglasses.

Please contact us with any questions you may have, and we hope you will join us in April for an unforgettable experience. On behalf of JCCC, we look forward to seeing you at MKCMUN.

 

Rules, Resolutions, and Position Papers

We know there is a great deal of concern over the complicated rules used at Model United Nations. We have made every effort to simplify the rules. More rule details can be found by clicking below.

Position papers are an element of judging in selecting the overall team awards. In order for a team to be considered for an overall award the team must have submitted a complete position paper package (one per each committee on which that country is seated), the papers must be in the prescribed format, and the package must have been received by us by March 25, 2019 -*** Please email position papers to bwright1@jccc.edu 

We need papers in Microsoft word format. 

Please note that MKCMUN no longer requires nor allows pre-submitted resolutions. Resolutions should be developed by delegates in committee.
