Please provide either a finalized delegate count or an updated estimate as soon as you are able to. You may send this information to email@example.com. This will assist the BMUN team greatly in the lead-up to the workshop.
Before arriving, each delegate and their parent/guardian will need to sign and complete our online waiver form, which will be accessible on the website starting September 26th, 2019. We will need the waiver signed for each delegate by 11:59 pm, October 25th. Delegates without filled-out waivers will not be permitted to participate in the Workshop.
Delegate Workshop will take place entirely within Dwinelle Hall this year. The check-in room will be updated in the next few weeks so stay posted through emails from firstname.lastname@example.org and the BMUN website. Classrooms will also be posted soon! Dwinelle Hall and all accompanying rooms are ADA-accessible.
Registered delegates will NOT be provided lunch. Delegates will be able to purchase lunch on our around UC Berkeley's campus. For advisors, there will be light snacks and coffee available in the advisor lounge.
As with our main conference, delegates are encouraged to arrive in Western Business Attire (WBA). However, this is not mandatory, and delegates who do not have WBA available can come dressed in business-casual.
There is a chance that the campus is congested and parking is hard to find come Saturday, October 26th. If possible, plan on arriving via the Downtown Berkeley BART station, or parking at one of the several paid parking lots off-campus. There is no parking at the Downtown Berkeley station, but you may find ample (and typically free) parking at the Ashby and North Berkeley BART stations, from which the Downtown Berkeley station is only one stop away.
Transport + Parking:
Because this is a learner's conference, delegates need not prepare for a single topic or produce any position papers. If you'd like to prepare your club for Delegate Workshop, it is highly recommended to have delegates practicing giving impromptu argumentative speeches, as well as to take a cursory look at some of the basic elements of MUN. We will be giving a comprehensive overview of everything you need to know, but it is always good to come in with a brief idea of what is to come.
