The student union of University of Lappeenranta is now receiving applications for the board of 2021!

Do you want to be the one affecting student’s matters both locally and nationwide? Are you interested in students’ well-being, living and free-time? Do you want to make new contacts around Finland? Do you want to take part on creating the Finland’s longest wappu? If you say yes, we need you!

In the student union board you have a chance to work for students. In LTKY we do supervision of interests, work with different stakeholders, organize events and do communication and our number one goal is that every student is doing well both in Lappeenranta and in Lahti. Therefore now it’s time to collect a motivated and enthusiastic board to carry out next year’s plan. 

These broad sectors will be chosen:
Higher education politics
Social politics
Municipal politics
Lahti & Turku campuses

Besides these at least the following sectors will be divided among board members: international affairs, events, environment and sustainability, associations, work life and corporate relations, well-being and sports, and tutoring.

Deliver your board or chairman application directly to the chair of the representative council and to the secretary general ([email protected] and [email protected]). The application should be a short, maximum one-page-long introduction of yourself and why you want to be part of the board. You can also express if you have a specific board task that you are interested in.

Applications will be received until Thursday 19.11. at 23:59 The names of enrolled applicants will be published after the application period, but you are still able to apply to the board until council meeting 3.12. The applicants will be interviewed in an open panel discussion on Monday 23.11. 

The council will choose a person to form the board and accept the new formation in its meeting on 3.12. Introductions and trainings for the new board members will be held on week 50, so save these dates in your calendar already now. 

For more information, you can also contact the current chair of the board Anna Hirsimäki ([email protected], 0442938811), chair of the council Eemeli Kettunen ([email protected]) or any of the other current board members.

Note that part of the board activities will be had only in Finnish. However, lacking Finnish skills is not a disqualifying factor for applying and becoming a board member.
