    • We will help by optionally collecting student committee preferences.​

  • Throughout the fall, please focus your time with students on parliamentary procedure, resolution writing, and public speaking. We will continue to hold advisor meetings focused on conference logistics.

  • We have pre-scheduled Lead Advisor meetings throughout the fall. We encourage you to join these calls as they will provide the most up-to-date information regarding the program. It is also a great opportunity to ask questions! All meetings will be at 4:00pm and will be recorded. Zoom/dial-in details will be shared in an email reminder as each meeting approaches.
