GA4: General Assembly Fourth Committee
HRC-UPR: Human Rights Council - Universal Periodic Review
UNDP: United Nations Development Programme - Executive Board
SC: Security Council

GA and SC memberships are final as listed below. 
Real-world membership changes to any of the committees will be reflected at NWMUN, which may result in updates to committees assigned for the relevant country or countries.

The Human Rights Council membership will be revised after the GA concludes election of 2022-2024 members, which we currently expect to occur in mid-October. At that point, one of Argentina, Ecuador, Honduras, or Paraguay will be removed from the Council's membership. These four countries are currently marked with an asterisk as a result - if they are assigned to an NWMUN-Portland 2022 delegation and then removed from the Council's membership, we will let the school know and assign them a new one-person (GA4-only) country to reassign the delegate to.

Elections for the UNDP Executive Board for 2022-2024 members are complete, and as a result UNDP membership is finalized. However, elections to this real-world body do not include the Western European and Others Group countries, as this regional group has its own rotation mechanism. As soon as WEOG members rotate, we will reflect these changes on our matrix. In the meantime, the 12 current WEOG members are listed as part of UNDP (as some will stay on the Executive Board) but with an asterisk.

X: Member of the Committee
*X*: Possible Member of the Committee (see notes in italics above)
P: Permanent Membership (SC only)
SuR: State Under Review (HRC-UPR only)
O: Observer Membership
Please note that all committees at NWMUN-Portland are single-delegate, meaning one delegate represents each country in each committee.

Country assignments listed as "Pending" are provisional and are subject to change; they are held for up to two weeks to allow delegations to pay for their assignments. If payment is received within this period, the term "pending" will be removed to reflect a confirmed registration; if not, the country assignment will be reversed and other delegations may request the country once more.
