Q: What are the steps of the registration process?
Q: Can I access the school dashboard using the login information I used for last year’s Conferences?
Login credentials created prior to 08/26/2015 are no longer active. Therefore, coordinators registering schools for any new conferences must create their login credentials at the time of registration. Once you have registered your school for a conference and created your login credentials, you will then be able to register for any conference with the same login information. This new function enables coordinators to manage multiple conference registrations with a single login.
Q: I forgot my school login information. Is there a way to retrieve it?
Every time you forget your school login info to access the school dashboard, please know that you can easily retrieve it by clicking on the link “Forgot Your Password?”. The link to retrieve your lost login info is located under the login access tabs on the website homepage.
After clicking on the link “Forgot Your Password?”, you will be asked to enter the email address linked to your school account. Once you submit the email address linked to your school account, an automated email will be sent to that email confirming your login information to access your school dashboard.
Q: Why do non-delegates (parents, teachers) need to be registered to attend an MMUN Conference?
Our first commitment to MMUN coordinators, delegates, and their parents is safety. To ensure every person attending the conference is credentialed by MMUN and screened by our security staff as well as the UN’s (New York and Rome Conferences), we require that everyone is registered online.
Q: Do non-delegates need to also pay the full fee if they do not want accommodations?
Yes. ALL participants (delegates, chaperones, and visitors) are required to pay the ‘Participant Fee’ which is inclusive of accommodations. Each conference varies as to what is included in the ‘Participant Fee’. Please visit conference information pages for details.
The ratio is of 1 teacher coordinator for 35 delegates, 1 chaperone for each group of 8 Upper Elementary delegates, and a 1:15 ratio for Middle School delegates. The group coordinator will be our primary contact if an emergency arises during the conference.
Q: Do we need to submit payment for the ‘Participant Fees’ before assigning a country or countries to my delegates?
In order to select a country for your delegation you just need to register your school and pay the country selection fee. To finalize your registration, you will need to pay the fees for all participants (teachers, students, chaperones, parents, observers, etc.) within the timeline provided by MMUN. Please note, you must match your participants with your appropriate country selection. If you hold a country with 8 spots, then 3 weeks later decide that only 6 participants are attending, you must release that country and select a country or countries with 6 spots. Also please keep in mind, if you wait and your delegate count changes, you must release your country; however, you run the risk of no other countries being available if the conference is sold out. This is why it is important to know how many delegates are part of your delegation as soon as possible to avoid this scenario.
Q: I am the teacher coordinator. Do I have a complimentary registration fee?
No. The conference ‘Participant Fee’ applies to all participants, including teacher coordinators, parents, students, and observers.
Q: How often should I check the dashboard after I have registered my school?
The dashboard and MMUN website should be checked weekly in the months prior to the conference and then daily in the month prior to the conference. This will ensure that the MMUN coordinator is aware of the details necessary to participate in the conference.
Q: Apart from position papers, what else must be submitted online to MMUN prior to the conference?
After position papers are submitted, the following also must be considered:
- a) SEND YOUR FLIGHT INFORMATION – MMUN will then provide you a dedicated registration time slot to reduce waiting times;
- b) CONFIRM THE PARTICIPATION ON-SITE OF THE MMUN COORDINATOR (Or indicate the lead chaperone);
- c) COMMUNICATE ASSIGNED FLAG BEARERS – Communicate to MMUN the names of two delegates from your delegation that will be the flag bearers at the MMUN Opening Ceremony & Flag Procession. These delegates will need to be available for rehearsals before the opening ceremony;
- d) DESIGN CONTEST (OPTIONAL) – Submit your students’ designs during step 3 of the registration process for the MMUN Design Contest;
- e) CULTURAL PERFORMANCE NIGHT (OPTIONAL) – Submit your schools’ application for Cultural Performance Night (including any soundtrack files required);
- f) POST-CONFERENCE OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES – Select eventual applicable post-conference tours.
