      EVENT DETAILS
      Global Leadership Model UN Conference 2017

      This is a unique and high caliber one-day Model UN Conference. It's an excellent way to 'kick-off' the 2017-2018 season!  The Global Leadership Conference provides delegates with an exciting first Model UN Conference of the school year. This is a NO PREP conference in which students receive an abridged topic guide and country profile on the day of the conference and 30-minute preparation block before the start of committee. In addition, students receive public speaking coaching from thoughtful mentors. Below is a brief Q and A to help you learn a little more about the event:  Where is it? The Omni Parker House (opening and closing ceremonies) and Suffolk Law School (committee sessions) in downtown Boston When is it? October 1st, 9-4...doors open for arrival at the Omni Parker House at 8:30  Who are the chairs? Members of Suffolk Model UN Team  What is the committee/topic? General Assembly, Refugee crisis in South Sudan Is this a middle or high school conference? This conference is open to both middle and high school teams. They will be separate committee rooms.  What makes this a leadership conference? Business and legal professionals, collegiate Model UN'ers, graduate students in international relations are coming together to provide coaching to delegates on strategies of public speaking, negotiation, and persuasion.  When will delegates find out their countries?  Once delegates arrive at the conference they will be assigned a country and be given a half-hour to prepare their country positions and opening statements.  Are there position papers? No - not for this Conference Do students need to travel with an advisor? Yes - an advisor must accompany their students and is responsible for taking them to lunch at one of the many wonderful options just a short walk away (map and lunch guide will be provided). We recommend that each student brings about $10 for lunch.  My school doesn't have a Model UN team, but I'd like to attend...are independent teams invited? Yes! Independent teams are invited to attend. A minimum of 2 delegates and an advisor are the only requirements. Parent advisors welcome! What is the cost of registration? The school sign-up fee is $100; the individual delegate fee is $60. Once a school has completed the school sign up, the UNAGB will send an invoice to the advisor for the individual delegate fees.  What is the refund policy? The team fee of $100 is non-refundable. Delegate fees ($60) may be refunded until a week before the event.  We hope to see you there! Please contact the UNAGB education team with questions. You can reach us by phone at (617) 482-4587 or by email at education@unagb.org.
