Esteemed Delegates, Faculty Advisors, Staff, and Guests,
I, Deren Semerci, hereby standing as the Secretary-General of Ted Ege College Model United Nations
Conference, invite you all in the name of our Academic and Organization Teams to the third annual session of TEKMUN'20 where you will have an incredible and unforgettable experience.
In Model United Nations, participants have the opportunity to discuss major problems and acquire
experience in international policy-making while also assembling with other participants interested in
international relations. As the TEKMUN team, we strive to make serious discussions occur and provide a healthy debating environment where these discussions can develop into functional resolutions.
Throughout this four-day journey our Under-Secretaries-General, Academic Assistants, Crisis Team and Committee Directors will accompany me with their exceptional academic vision and knowledge. While we prepare the conference from an academic perspective, the Director-General Deniz Başaran and the rest of the Organisation Team will work hard to provide you the best TEKMUN experience you will ever have.
My team and I are always committed to providing each delegation, to the best of our capability, any
assistance that is needed to enhance their four-day journey. With that, it is my greatest hope that all
participants will have an amazing time and create wonderful memories that will last after the end of the
closing ceremony. We look forward to seeing you all at TEKMUN'20!
