Come and meet others in the same situation and spend a great evening together!
Representatives of the Student Union will also talk inform about current affairs concerning organisations and the event offers an excellent opportunity to discuss with and give feedback to HYY.
 
In addition to the chairperson, another representative from your organisation is welcome to join the event.
 
FOR NEW AND POTENTIAL CHAIRPERSONS
There will be a specific program for people who have been elected or who are interested in running for chairperson for next year! The program starts with the common opening session at 5 pm in Wilhelmsson Hall. Afterwards the program continues with a chairpersons’ panel where current and former chairpersons share and can be asked about their experiences as chairperson. After the panel participants will get to share and discuss what their hopes and fears for the potential upcoming year as chairperson are with others.
 
There is no limit to how many can participate from one organisation, however the overall maximum of participants in the program for new and potential chairpersons is 60 due to the capacity of Wilhelmsson Hall.
