Executive Board

The ISYY Executive Board is elected annually by the Representative Council. The Board’s term of office runs from January to December. The Executive Board consists of a Chairperson, a Vice Chairperson and at most eight members. The Chairpersons and members are students who are elected by the Representative Council. According to ISYY Rules, the Executive Board Chair and Vice Chair must represent both campuses.

The role of the Executive Board is to work in the field of student advocacy both on a local and national level. Each member of the Executive Board has a specific area of responsibility in order to guarantee that every student, despite their background or interests, gets their voice heard in decision-making processes at ISYY, UEF and elsewhere in Finland. The Executive Board members work closely with each other and travel regularly between the campuses. In addition, the Executive Board cooperates with other Finnish student unions.

Responsibilities of the Executive Board

Responsibilities of the ISYY Executive Board include:

  • Holding meetings regularly
  • Preparing and implementing decisions made by the Representative Council
  • Issuing statements and comments on student affairs
  • Organising theme weeks and theme days and meeting students during these

  • Deciding twice a year how organisation grants are awarded
