You may be radical or moderate, but you have to be consistent in your position.
Your goal is to be seen as a strong member of the House, actively shaping the discourse and winnig support.
Simply, you hope to get re-elected next term. Read more on our Rules & Resources site.
There are two Ranking Members on each Committee - one Democrat and one Republican.
They will be selected from among Committee Memebers based on the quality of their Position Papers.
Their role is to defend their Party's principles and policies expertly, but they are also expected to advance general national interests. Bipartisanism is not an empty phrase for them.
Chairs will give them multiple opportunities to preside over the Committees.
Their hard work will be rewarded by waiving their registration fee. Read more on our Rules & Resources site.
Your role is to observe carefully and interrogate thoroughly.
Your utmost desire is to write the best story, therefore you stay focused on one Committee.
You want to kick-start your career in journalism, thus you desperately wish to be noticed and win recognition and awards.
Naturally, you are going to watch the lobbyists, but you should keep an eye on the Committee Members as well - and especially the consistency and character of their promises.
If you are unsure what this role is about, maybe you were not born to be one of them.
Lobbyists may be recognized by Chairs or presiding Ranking Memebers as well as be yielded time by Committee Members in order to speak.
They do not vote - at least not directly, but they surely have other ways to exert their influence.
Committee Members, Journalists, Lobbyists: 80 EUR
Ranking Members: 0 EUR
Observers: 90 EUR
The Fee covers your registration, meals and refreshments (as indicated in our Schedule) as well as discounted Prague Public Transport Tickets valid for all Conference days (Fri-Mon). Please refer to our Venues & Accommodation site and Facebook for more information and updates.
(Individual & Delegation Registration Opening Soon)
PMC is open to a wide range of pariticipants - from high school students to university alumni.
You must be over 18 years old at the time of travel to the Conference in order to register individually. Otherwise, you must come in a Delegation under a Delegation Leader who is over 18 years old (the Delegation Leader has to register first).
In all cases, the same Registration Form (above) is used - you only have to select the appropriate registration option (Individual Participant - Delegation Leader - Delegation Participant - Observer) at the top of the Form. Delegation Leaders may register Delegation Participants one by one or allow them to register separately on their own. This also makes adding new Delegation Participants to already registered Delegations very easy.
Your registration will be confirmed in 2 days, your Committee & Role allocation in 2 weeks.
We want to ensure participants are allocated positions according to their priorities in the largest possible extent. The sooner you apply, the more likely you are to get your first choice.
If you need your registration confirmation urgently or have any questions,
