Executive board

The board appointed by the representative body is responsible for the day-to-day life of the student union. The board works especially for the development of education and the well-being of students. Board members, among other things, organize events, lead OSAKO teams, represent students in various working groups, take a stand on current issues concerning students and cooperate with the umbrella organization SAMOK. OSAKO’s board is a so-called labor board, where board members perform their duties of trust full-time. The length of the board term is one year.

Election Committee

The election committee consists of the chairman, six members, and personal deputies. The task of the election committee is to organize OSAKO’s representative election and other possible member votes.

The board makes a presentation to the representative board about the student representatives and their deputies to the Oamk-board and the institutions appointed by it. The board also prepares the election procedure and the student council’s election regulations for confirmation by the representative board.
