Mission Briefings

NMUN encourages delegations to set up a meeting with the Mission to the UN from the country they are representing. This is an incredible opportunity to meet with actual representatives of the country studied. Our hope is that the briefing will help your delegation gain a better understanding of the policies and tenor of your country’s work at the United Nations.

Delegations need to schedule their own briefings with the Permanent Missions in the New York City area (Monday morning before 2 pm). The tools on the right have been designed to assist you with this.

Briefings at the Hotel

A limited number of hotel meeting rooms are available for briefings if the Mission doesn’t have enough space to accommodate your delegation. Contact the Assistant Secretary-General (Conf. A or Conf. B) to request a room on a first-come, first-served basis.

If meeting at the hotel:

  • The group should arrive to the designated room early to make sure it is unlocked.  Bring an extra copy of the NMUN program (request at registration) for the speaker.
  • Offer to have the head delegate meet the diplomat in a specific place such as under the clock on the 1st floor lobby of the Sheraton.  Arrive early.
  • Hold a sign with her/his name on it.
  • Escort her/him to the meeting room, do not ask the diplomat to find her/his own way.
  • After the briefing, escort the diplomats out and thank them for their time.
