Position Paper Guidelines

Disclaimer: Position papers are only required for General Assembly and Novice committees. They are NOT required for any crisis committees (The Novice Aztec committee is a crisis committee and as such does not need a position paper).

Submission Details:

Position Papers are due at 11:59 p.m. on Friday October 26th (in the event of an emergency of extenuating circumstances, please email your chair to request an extension of the deadline)

Submit the background guide as a PDF in an email to your chair (not your USG) with the subject line “(Committee Name) (Country Name) Background Guide”

Chair emails can be found at the bottom of their respective committee pages.
