Tentative Schedule & Conference Sessions
Both NHSMUN 2021 sessions will feature the same activities and programming. The conference officially begins in the afternoon of Day 1 and concludes in the afternoon of Day 4, though the day prior also features optional training workshops (more details below). Below is a tentative schedule. Specific times, as well as more detailed activities, will be provided as the conference dates get closer.
Please note: the tentative schedule below reflects NHSMUN’s in-person schedule. The timings for the online conference will be different and will vary based on time zone. Please visit the Online Conference FAQ page for additional information.
The NHSMUN schedule offers activities all day and evening. Many of these activities are optional, and schools wishing to explore New York City’s many cultural activities will have the opportunity to do so. Alternatively, many schools choose to arrive a couple of days early or to extend their trip by a couple of days after the conclusion of the conference. We encourage you to build the schedule that best suits your team, and hotel rooms are available to host you during these dates as well.
Note! NHSMUN 2021 will offer an expanded set of optional training and preparation sessions, as well as practice simulations, the day prior to Day 1 of the conference (March 4 and March 9). The sessions are available for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students and are open to all interested schools. We will also run training sessions during the afternoon of Day 1 of the conference (March 5 and March 10). There is not any fee for participation in these preparation sessions and training workshops.
If you are interested in a customized training session for your delegation the day prior to the start of the conference, please contact us no later than January 1, 2021 to arrange the scheduling and content to be covered. We enjoy the ability to interact with students in advance of the conference, as we have found that it makes them more comfortable in committee sessions and enriches their conference experience.
CONFERENCE DATES: Inevitably, schools will have different preferences regarding which session to attend. Some schools tend to prefer a specific session because of scheduling or because they can miss fewer days of class; others prefer a session because airfare is cheaper over the given set of dates. Many schools prefer whichever session allows them to receive their top choice of country to represent. Regardless of your situation, we always do our best to accommodate your requests. Please specify your session preference when you complete your registration! Both of our conference sessions feature the same committees, programming, and activities.
