HYY is looking for a candidate for SSI’s Board for 2019

25.10.2018

HYY is looking for a candidate for the board of Svenska Studerandes Intresseförening (SSI) for 2019. SSI is an umbrella association for Swedish-speaking and bilingual students. SSI’s main tasks include publishing the Studentbladet magazine and organizing events for Swedish-speaking and bilingual students. The members of SSI are, in addition to HYY, Aalto University’s Student Union (AYY), Arcada Student Union (ASK), Teknologföreningen and HYY’s Swedish-language student nations Nylands Nation, Östra Finlands Nation, Åbo Nation and Vasa nation.

SSI’s board for 2019 will be elected at the association’s fall meeting 27.11.2018. Each member association will name their own candidates for the board. No more than two candidates can be chosen for the board from a single member association.

Applicants should send their freely written applications to HYY’s registry (kirjaamo@hyy.fi) by 23:59 on the 4th of November 2018. HYY will select its candidates based on their fluency in the Swedish language, their knowledge of HYY’s Swedish-speaking community and their previous experience of the administrative work that comes with working on a board. HYY’s representatives are expected to stay in close contact with HYY’s board on matters related to SSI. HYY’s candidate will be chosen according to the abovementioned criteria, so do bring them up in your application.

HYY’s Board will go through the applications and choose HYY’s candidates in its meeting on the 8th of November 2018. The applicants will be informed of the results afterwards. We also hope that anyone applying to become HYY’s candidate can make it to SSI’s fall meeting on the 27th of November, where the new board will be elected.

For more information regarding SSI’s board and SSI as an association, please contact HYY’s and SSI’s board member Sebastian Österman (sebastian.osterman@hyy.fi).
