Welcome of our Secretary-General
Hello and welcome on our website!
We are delighted to see you’re interested in our Twente International Model United Nations (TIMUN) 2013 conference; please take some time to find the information on our event on these web pages.
We will be working very hard to ensure your participation will be an unforgettable experience indeed. Our terrific team will work around the clock to ensure TIMUN 2013 will be a smooth ride through the procedures and politics of the United Nations, which is after all the aim of our organization. You will be treated to a hands-on approach to diplomacy, public speaking and lobbying, while having a whale of a good time and making new friends from all around the world. No wonder MUNs tend to be addictive!
Please get in touch in case something isn’t clear or if you have any questions; we’ll be more than happy to get back to you.
We look forward to seeing you all in Enschede, the Netherlands, come the month of May! In the meantime, keep on spreading the word. We are very much looking forward to seeing you all at TIMUN 2013!
David-Jan Bosschaert (DJ for friends, His Lordship for enemies) has always been very interested in international politics because of his multicultural background. From a very early age on he was inspired to take part in national and international parliamentary simulations. It therefore only seemed natural he would end up doing MUNs once he became an active member of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven Model United Nations society.
He went from strength to strength taking part in KULMUN's own conference twice, as well as in CUIMUN, BerlInMUN, OxIMUN, ReadIMUN and MostiMUN. He also chaired the Security Council at Wroclaw International MUN and remains an active member at the Belgian and Flemish Youth Parliament, where he twice chaired a Senate Commission and became a Minister of Institutional Reforms. His assignment as Secretary-General of TIMUN therefore comes natural, and David-Jan will for once let his Dutch ancestry get the better of him in trying to make the Twente International Model United Nations the best one to date!
TIMUN 2013 has begun.
