Officers and Press Team
 
Hints & Tips

Forming your delegation

In choosing the students that will be part of your group, it is recommended that priority be given to the students that in your judgment are more highly motivated to participate and that will therefore work harder in their preparation and will be able to avail themselves of the benefits of the MUN experience to the fullest extent.

Conduct

High standards of conduct are demanded of all participants throughout the duration of the conference. Respect is to be shown to all fellow delegates, Officers, Advisors and Staff. Smoking and consumption of alcoholic beverages will be prohibited everywhere in the conference premises. Violation of any of the above rules may lead to temporary or permanent expulsion from the conference at the discretion of the Organisers.

Dress Code

The AMUN is a formal conference and, therefore, formal attire is required, meaning suit and tie for gentlemen and a similar degree of formality for ladies. Informal clothing (T-shirts, jeans, sneakers etc.) will not be allowed. Delegates deemed to bein violation of the dress code may be asked to leave the conference and return appropriately dressed.
