Representative Body

The Representative Body holds the decision-making authority in Student Union Kaakko.

Twenty permanent members and twenty deputy members are elected to the Representative Body in an election. The term of office is one calendar year. The election of members for the following year takes place in November.

The Representative Body decides on large-scale matters in the student union, such as the membership fee and the approval of the budget, financial statements and annual report. In addition, the Representative Body elects the Board of the student union. The Representative Body usually has three to six meetings during the year. All members of Student Union Kaakko may attend these meetings, but only the members of the Representative Body have the right to vote.

Any member of Student Union Kaakko may apply to become a member of the Representative Body. The work to promote and support student life is important and interesting – if you would like to join, keep your eyes and ears open in the autumn so that you will not miss the application process.
