Conference Safety Policies
For the safety and well-being of all students, CAHSMUN has enacted several conference policies (“Conference Policies”) below. Please thoroughly review these policies with your advisors, sponsor teachers, and parents. Once you understand, and agree to, the Conference Policies, please sign the Conference Waiver by clicking the button above. You will not be permitted to attend CAHSMUN until a waiver is signed and returned.
1. Participants are expected to attend all committee sessions and remain respectful of all individuals during the conference.
2. All individuals at CAHSMUN are required to wear conference-issued nametags for identification and security reasons. Your CAHSMUN nametag is exclusive to you, and cannot be redistributed or given to other parties. Please immediately notify the Secretariat team if your nametag is missing.
