Delegate Preparation Guide
Northwest Model United Nations provides the Delegate Preparation Guide annually to help team leadership and individual delegates to prepare for the conference. The Delegate Preparation Guide includes everything other than the background information on the committees and topics - this information is available in the committee background guides. Specifically, the Delegate Preparation Guide includes the rules of procedure, floor plans and room assignments, and the delegate code of conduct, among other information.
