Delegates play a fundamental role in Ridge MUN. A delegate's role is to research their country, properly prepare for the topics that will be debated, as well as have a basic understanding of their country's national policies and positions.

It is very important that delegates represent their nation in every aspect, and that they assume the role of being a representative, with all of the rights and responsibilities that it entails.
