NCMUN runs from the morning of Friday, September 28th to the night of Sunday, October 30th. There is a welcome event on Thursday, September 27th that all delegates and directors are invited to attend but does not fit into the formal schedule.
Committee sessions will be held on campus at the Australian National University. Most of the social events will be in walking distance of ANU, or a short car ride or bus trip away.
The delegate registration fee is $135. This gives you access to all conference committee sessions, social events on Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday, dinner on Friday night, and lunch on Saturday and Sunday. The registration fee is usually non-refundable for any reason, but will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Model United Nations
NCMUN is a conference for delegates of all experience level and for many delegates, the conference will be their first. Committee pages and committee Facebook groups will have briefing guides and rules of procedure documents that will help you prepare for the conference. The Secretariat also run sessions at the beginning of the conference to familiarise you with the rules of procedure. Additionally, your directors will be able to assist you throughout your committee sessions, and in the run up to the conference.
You should bring pens, paper, your laptop and any research you have done to the conference, as they will all be crucial to your committee sessions. The dress code for committee sessions is Western business attire, and the social events are casual dress, aside from the Final Ball which is black tie or other formal wear.
NCMUN doesn't recognise formalised delegations, however university Model UN societies often have a person who serves as a head delegate and sometimes coordinates travel, accommodation, training, and social events. Get in touch with your university society, or send an email to email@example.com if you can't find a contact and we'll help you out.
As a rule, we will attempt to allocate delegates to the embassy of the country they are representing. When general registration opens, all delegates will be asked to give preferences for which embassies they would like to alternatively visit, and for delegates who are representing a country we do not have an embassy locked in for, or where an embassy's max number has been reached, we will endeavour to give all delegates one of their preferences.
