Board

The Student Union’s administrative and executive powers are exercised by the Board elected by the Representative Council. The Board’s term of office is one calendar year. The Board is responsible for the day-to-day running of the Student Union and for implementing the action plan. The Board represents the Student Union, supervises the Student Union administration, and exercises general executive power within the limits set by regulations and the decisions of the Representative Council.  

The ten-member Board is led by the Chair who is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Board. The Board will hold its first meeting in January. Approximately half of the working time is spent on common board work, but each board member is also responsible for a certain area. Here you can see examples how the responsibilities of previous boards have been divided.

As a member of the Board, you will become a part of the AYY office staff and work community. You may consider working for the Board as a full-time job. Therefore, you should not plan to study or work in addition to the work in the Board.

The Representative Council

The Representative Council is AYY’s highest decision-making body. You may consider the Representative Council being like AYY’s parliament. The 45 members of the Representative Council are elected every two years by vote. This year is the election year and you can vote for new members of the Representative Council on 28 Oct-6 Nov 2019.

The Chair is responsible for the activities of the Representative Council in general, including the preparation of meetings and the chairing of meetings. The roles of vice chairs are always shaped by the actors of each year. This year, Noora Tanska has served as the 1st Vice Chair of the Representative Council being responsible for the group chair meetings organised during the weeks of the Representative Council meetings. She describes her duties as follows:

”The best thing about being the Vice Chair has been the fact that the provided framework has been relatively loose, allowing the chairs to develop the Representative Council activities in a flexible way, according to our own interests.

Outside of the meetings this year, we have developed information sharing practices of the Representative Council, provided training for the group chairs, organised a common sittning for the committees and group chairs, and assisted the Central Election Committee in organising briefings on the Representative Council election, among other things.

During the year, we have held one-hour meetings among the chairs usually on a weekly basis. In addition to the Representative Council meeting, we have spent approximately five hours for work  during the meeting week. In other weeks, there has been less work depending on ongoing projects. I have been able to have significant effect on my workload. For me, the best aspects of this job have been flexibility and the development of the Representative Council activities, not forgetting our great team of chairs!”
