The Secretariat is the intellectual backbone of the TEIMUN Foundation. It is tasked with ensuring that the council sessions are qualitative in the broadest sense of the word. Some of the Secretariat’s tasks include coordinating the council chairs, reviewing background papers and giving the Board advice on session-related matters. The Secretariat consists of the Secretary-General and the Deputy Secretary-General. Functionaries for both positions are chosen during the TEIMUN conference.
