Spend a day simulating the United States Congress:
As delegates to various pre-assigned congressional committees, students will propose and defend policy measures that they believe in. Bills that pass small committee sessions in the morning may have an opportunity to be discussed in a Full House or Senate session in the afternoon. During our closing ceremony, one exceptional member from each committee will be awarded the prize of Best Delegate.
The fifth University of Maryland Model Congress Conference will be on Saturday, April 6th, 2019. Registration ends March 6th.
The schedule should look approximately like this:
|Opening Ceremony||8:30 a.m. – 8:55 a.m.|
|Small Committee Sessions||9:00 a.m. – noon|
|Small Committee Sessions||1:00 p.m. – 3:25 p.m.|
|Full House/Senate Sessions||3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.|
|Closing Ceremony||5:35 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.|
