Training Session

The NWMUN 2013 Delegate Preparation and Training Session will be held from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM on Friday, November 22. Facilitated by experienced NWMUN staff members, the sessions are designed for delegates who are new to either Model United Nations generally, or to Northwest Model United Nations specifically.
