Apply for Executive Board of the Student Union for the rest of 2020

Do you want to be a part of making student life better? Do you want to learn new skills while getting to know new people? Are you the new board member of OSAKO?

At its meeting on May 5th, the Body of Representatives granted the resignation to Chair of the Board Anni Pirttimaa. According to the rules of OSAKO, when the Representatives exempts the Chair of the organ, the organ as a whole shall be exempted and a new organ is elected to replace it for the remaining term.

The new board members for Executive Board of the Student Union for 2020 are elected during May at the meeting of the Body of Representatives. We are looking for enthusiastic and active board members, who are willing to develop OSAKO, especially in this changing situation and whilst doing that, to develop their own skills in event producing, communications and advocacy working!

OSAKO’s Executive Board consists of a chairperson, 1-2 vice-chairs and 4-6 board members. Their job is to implement the decisions of the Body of Representatives into action, run operative actions of the student union in everyday life, and for example organize tutor trainings, events and cultural activities to OUAS exchange students. Among that, the board is presenting OUAS students in many working groups and meetings every week.

Board members receive monthly reward throughout the year, excluding June and July. Reward is approximately the same amount as Kela financial aid for students. Even though OSAKO’s board is a working board, it is still possible to continue your studies during the year – it’s a matter of precise scheduling. There is also staff at the student union.

New elected board members will define their own responsibilities at the organizing meeting of the board after the election. That’s why current responsibilities of the board members aren’t permanent, but every new board member can form their own responsibility areas. Check the contact of the board to see how responsibilities were divided this year.

The newly elected executive board will receive orientation for their tasks in May.
