Chairs are exempt from the standard delegate fee, paying only £44 for access to all of our conference socials, and exclusive chairing social events.

Role of a committee chairperson

The chair is responsible for the procedural functions and smooth running of the committee. A chair will need a thorough working knowledge of the procedural rules of CUIMUN, and the confidence to lead debate in accordance with these rules. They will also need to be able to support and encourage delegates either new to MUN or to the format of their committee. Chairs will be required to submit a study guide as part of their committee preparation.

Oxbridge Chairing Awards

The best chair - or chairs - at both CUIMUN and OxIMUN are eligible for an award from both conferences that recognises their skill, conscientiousness and commitment to the aims of Model United Nations. Award recipients receive guaranteed chair positions, exempt from chairing fees, at both conferences for the following year.

We were delighted to award the 2019 Oxbridge Chairing Award to Jannis Giavridis (Director, ECOFIN) and Joe Mensah (Director, UNEP)!


Please don't hesitate to contact us by email if there's anything we can help you with.
