It is my utmost honour to welcome you all to ETUMUN 2019! My name is Simay Çalışkan, I am a junior Industrial Engineering student in TOBB Economics and Technology University. Although I was always interested in MUN conferences during high school as well, my MUN journey officially started with ETUMUN society, and I am more than happy to serve you as the Secretary General in this third edition of our conference.
Last year, we had so much fun hosting a conference for more than 480 delegates coming from different countries. In order to bring an even better conference to you this year,keeping the lessons we learned from our previous experiences in our minds, both our academic and organization teams are working hard and doing everything to give you the best MUN experience of your life.
For ETUMUN’19, we tried to choose committees focusing on various topics and with different MUN experience level requirements so that everyone can find a committee which suits them the best. Aiming to welcome both inexperienced and highly-experienced delegates, we have 7 different committees waiting for your participation: GA-1: Disarmament and International Security, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, United Nations Environment Assembly, North Atlantic Treaty Organization Military Committee, United Nations Security Council, and Historical Joint Crisis Committee: The Napoleonic Wars.
My one and only Deputy Secretary General Ms. Şebnem Yaren and I are working hard to gather the best academic team possible with the helps of our dearest Academic Advisors; Mr. Onat Yiğit and Ms. Zeynep Esendemir. At the same time, Directors General of ETUMUN’19 Ms. Elif Su Yurtsuz and Ms. Ceren Karataban, with the help of their Deputy Director General Salih Gökberk Düzyol, are determined to make this experience not only a professional but also an entertaining one for all of you.
On behalf of our teams, I would like to invite all of you to TOBB ETU between October 19-22. Join us and let’s shape the reality with our ideas!
