Masters of Ceremonies for Virtual 6th AFMAM 2020

Term of Reference



Initiated by the ASEAN Foundation, the 6th ASEAN Foundation Model ASEAN Meeting (AFMAM) 2020 targets under-graduate students from universities across ASEAN to receive capacity development training and simulate how decision-makers of ASEAN address regional issues in a meeting. Students will be able to role-play senior officials, ministers, and leaders of ASEAN to learn about ASEAN’s mechanism in resolving and making decision upon certain regional challenges. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s AFMAM will be run virtually, involving over 70 students.

To help make the virtual event more engaging, we are looking to hire one female and one male masters of ceremonies (MCs) to play an important role as anchor of information providing all AFMAM-related information to the participants and ensuring that the events runs without glitches.

  • Announce upcoming sessions and providing brief information about those sessions
  • Ensure seamless transition between sections of the programme, including reminding all parties about time limit
  • Help to ensure that every session is started and ended in timely manner

The two MCs are required to be present at the virtual event at least 1 hour earlier and stand by until the end of session. The MCs are also obligated to allocate one day to have a briefing with the organising team.
