Northwest Model United Nations provides the Delegate Preparation Guide annually to help team leadership and individual delegates to prepare for the conference. The Delegate Preparation Guide includes everything other than the background information on the committees and topics - this information is available in the background guides, available for each committee at the Committees and Topics page 
Specifically, the Delegate Preparation Guide includes the rules of procedure, floor plans and room assignments, and the delegate code of conduct, among other information.

Additionally, the Secretariat facilitates a Delegate Preparation and Training Session.  This session is open to everyone who wishes to attend - we especially encourage delegates who have never done MUN before, and those who have participated in other conferences but who have never attended NWMUN before, to attend.
