Thank you for your patience as we extended the registration deadline back to account for the recent flooding in SC. The first round of country assignments will be sent out by the end of the week. However, there are still available spaces if you would like to attend - just send us your forms (found by going to Conferences > Registration on the left side bar) ASAP. Please let us know if you have any questions!
October 20, 2015
We understand due to the recent flooding in many parts of SC, there may be delays in getting registration information to us. Please know that WUMUN is committed to working with you, and to getting as many high schools as possible to our conference to experience this unique opportunity, especially given it is our 40th anniversary. We have pushed the deadline back for the registration forms, and will be available to answer any questions you may have. If you foresee issues getting to the conference, please contact us so that we may try to help you.

We appreciate the advisors allowing our PLSC 260 collegiate delegates to assist their respective high school delegations with conference preparation - our Winthrop delegates have worked hard all semester to be the best mentor to your students as possible - sometimes juggling more than one delegation at a time. These delegates are here to assist you and your students and make the conference as pleasant and rewarding as possible. If you have any questions about the role of the college delegates in the conference please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you!
