The Representative Council holds the highest authority within the student union. The Representative Council is elected for a two-year term, and all AYY members are eligible to vote and stand as candidate in the elections held every other year. The Representative Council comprises 45 representatives, all of whom must be members of AYY. The next elections will be held in autumn 2023.
Among other things, the Representative Council decides on AYY’s budget, financial statements, loans, construction and regulations. The Representative Council also appoints the Student Union Board, the Chairs of the Board and the highest officials.
Meetings of the Representative Council, which take place approximately once a month, are open to all AYY members. Meetings are live-streamed and simultaneously interpreted from Finnish into English. You can follow the meetings live at ayy.fi/live. The meeting agendas and minutes can be found on AYY Inside.
