Call for applications for the FSHS delegation

The activities of the Student Health Care Foundation will be renewed on 1 January 2021 when students of Universities of Applied Sciences are accepted into the services of the foundation. The Foundation has a 30 - member delegation, to which the student unions may nominate seven members and seven alternates. The nominations of student unions between members and deputies are rotating in accordance with the bylaws approved by SYL's 2018 General Assembly.

The FSHS delegation meets regularly twice a year or whenever the chair of the delegation, the board of the foundation or members of the delegation so request. The delegation's spring meeting will discuss last year's financial statements, the report of the Board of Directors and decide on the measures to be taken by them. The autumn meeting of the delegation will discuss the Foundation's action plan and budget for the coming year, elect the chairman and vice-chairman of the delegation and appoint any members of the Foundation's Board. The delegation will meet in Helsinki. A member of the delegation will be reimbursed for travel expenses incurred by the meeting according to public transport.

The Student Union of the University of Eastern Finland is applying for two candidates to be members of the FSHS delegation for the term 2021–2022.

The member of the delegation is expected to take a quick approach, to develop a vision for the development of student health care and to be ready to participate in the delegation's meetings.
