Embassy Briefings

NMUN encourages delegations to set up a meeting with the Embassy 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 Embassies in the DC area (on Thursday, or Friday before 2 pm). If they cannot meet with your group on either of these days, ask if they might be willing to meet with your delegation virtually on a date prior to the conference. The tools in the blue box have been designed to assist you with this.

Briefing Protocol
  • Limit the briefing to one hour when scheduling and honor this time limit.
  • Send out an initial request by letter, email, or phone call. You may need to make several inquiries before you receive a response.
  • Follow up with a confirmation letter, email, or phone call.
  • Arrive to the briefing on time.
  • Send a thank you note after the briefing.
