Afterwards, we will send your school an invoice for the total payment your school is responsible for. For any dropouts after this deadline, schools will still be responsible for 50% of their delegate fees. You may inform us of any dropouts or additional sign-ups by email and we will send you an updated invoice accordingly after this deadline.
Please note that if you would like to be a chair, you must submit your position papers by this date as well. Please attach your papers to your Chair Application form. Find out more information on the Chair Application Page.
