Conference Rules

Since Carolinas Conference is intended to prepare delegates for future conferences, we expect all delegates to adhere to rules of procedure in order to ensure a competitive conference for all delegates. Conference staff are always happy to answer any questions delegates may have about rules of procedure and what is expected of them. However, repeated and deliberate violation of the rules of procedure will not be tolerated. All delegates will be provided with a copy of the rules of procedure in the delegate guide they receive at the beginning of the conference, and may also be found at the link below. 


Dress Code

Western Business Attire is expected of all delegates. Western Business Attire includes suits, blazers, dress shirts, blouses, skirts, slacks, and appropriate dress shoes. No sneakers, T-shirts, jeans, fish-nets, etc. If delegates are in violation of the dress code, they will be given a warning. After the first warning, delegates are expected to return the next day with the proper attire. If delegates continue to violate the dress code, they will be asked to leave and will no longer be permitted to participate in Carolinas Conference. 


Awards

Partner and individual awards are determined by committee chairs and will be given out in each committee. Awards will also be given to delegations/countries based on their performance in all committees. 

Awards will also be distributed for position papers.


Committee procedure

Below is a link to the recent Security Council emergency session held to discuss Syria, the United States' offensive action, and whether unilateral action is ever truly allowed in the United Nations. Utilize the media below to get an idea of how sessions will occur while in committee. Take special note of the evidence each speaker provides as they either negate, support, or remain neutral on. Pay even closer attention to how the speakers interact with one another, with the Security Council President, and the tones they maintain as the session progresses.


Resolution Writing

 The goal of each committee is to produce resolutions that address their topics. For Carolinas Conference we ask that delegates do not bring prewritten resolutions, but instead work with their committee to create them during the conference. In writing their resolutions we provide delegates with the bellow template. Note that the content in the template is merely reminders and suggestions for delegates, it should be deleted before beginning a working paper. Delegates can also find a form for submitting amendments below. 


Additional Preparation

If your group is located in the Charlotte Metropolitan area and would like additional help in preparing for the conference please let us know. We are happy to send members of the Carolinas Conference Staff and/or other experienced Model UN delegates to help prepare your team for the conference.


Travel Packet

The Travel Packet provides helpful information for delegates and faculty advisors in terms of direction from the hotel, parking, and food options at and around UNC Charlotte.
