ISYY’s new rules will enter into force

In accordance with its Action Plan 2020, The Student Union of the University of Eastern Finland (ISYY) has reformed its organisation. With the reform ISYY’s Sections and Campus Board will be ISYY history on April 1, 2021, when the new rules will enter into force. Sections and Campus Boards will be replaced by Teams and Councils for Chairpersons.

With the authorization of the Representative Council, ISYY’s Excecutive Board has established Teams since the beginning of the year 2021. Own Vappu Teams have been established in both Kuopio and Joensuu to organise traditional Vappu events. Also common Savo-Karjala Team has been established to organise Savo-Karjala Excursion event during Vappu week and Interest Advocacy Team to collect together people interested about advocacy. If you want to get involved in the activities of these teams, you can contact the Team Leaders or attend their meetings. Information about upcoming team meetings and events can be found in the event calendar on ISYY’s frontpage and Weekly Feed.

The reform started during 2020 and the work was started in working groups. Campus Boards and Sections were able to comment on the reform draft at the end of spring semester 2020. The reform required some changes in ISYY’s rules and these changes were confirmed at two meetings of the ISYY Representative Council 6/2020 (29.10.2020) and 7/2020 (24.11.2020). UEF Rector Jukka Mönkkönen has confirmed the new rules 8th of March 2021.
