The Board – an efficient bunch

The Board of the Student Union provides a gateway to the core of student policy. The Board is the essence of the Student Union.

OYYhallitus2015The Student Council elects the Board’s 6-9 members annually, and the Board is run by the chairman. The Board is the executive body of the Student Union. It implements the decisions of the Student Council, represents the Student Union and monitors the economy of the Student Union together with the Secretary General and the Committee for Economic Affairs.

As a collective, the Board supervises the Secretary General and is responsible for the recruiting of staff, except for the editor-in-chief of Oulu Student Magazine and the Secretary General who are elected by the Student Council.

The Board works in close cooperation with the committees and sections. The members of the Student Union can influence the Board’s statements and comments and have their opinions heard in the Board through the committees and sections. All eligible members of the Student Union can stand as candidates for the Board. If you are interested in joining the Board, do contact the Secretary General or one of the Student Council’s groups.

The Council elects the Board for a one-year term at the end of each year. But if you’re interested to sit on the Board, you should be active well in advance!
