Application Process Includes

Principal and conference adviser emails and cell phone numbers for each attendee; attendee email, home, and cell phone number; list of dietary needs and medical conditions; and grade of each attendee.

Current student program membership status—NatStuCo, NHS, or NJHS—for each school/person registering in your group:

  1. For current NatStuCo, NHS, and NJHS member schools, the school adviser membership login information (per the adviser’s membership profile) is required in order for the member rate to be applied.
  2. If a school does not have a current membership, attendees from that school will automatically be registered at the nonmember rate. To find out if your school has a current membership, contact membership@NatStuCo.org, membership@nhs.us, membership@njhs.us, or call 800–253–7746, option 4.

Adviser-student ratio is one adviser per 15 students for high school or combined level delegations, and one adviser per 12 students for middle level delegations.

Additional advisers, administrators, and parents/chaperones who will be attending the conference with your group will need to be added to the school record by the primary adviser. The primary adviser for your student program (NatStuCo, NHS, or NJHS) can do this by calling Customer Care at 1-800-253-7746, option 4.
