Committee Information

We have introduced a ‘star’ system this year to help you with your committee choices.

* = Intermediate Committee. Rules will not be altered but directors will play more of a supporting role for people learning and adapting to Model United Nations Conferences.

** = Advanced. Delegates will be required to have some understanding of the rules and procedures or be confident in their knowledge and public speaking.

*** = Highly Advanced. Participation in this committee requires an application that will be considered by the SAMUNC 2015 Executive.

**** = Press delegation. You will need to be able to use social media, write news reports, press releases and conduct press conferences with delegates.
