The representatives

Joining the representatives is an easy way to take part in LAMKO’s activities. In the representatives, you get familiar with the student union from a front row seat, but it doesn’t take up your time as much as being a member of the board. The representatives are chosen via elections in the autumn and they work for the calendar year.

The representatives hold the highest decission power in the student union. They decide things on the grand scale. For example, the representatives approve the strategy, assigns the board members, oversees actions of the board and discharges the previous board for the liability for the accounts.

There are 15 members and deputy members in the representatives. Chairman and vice chairman are in charge of guiding the work of the representatives. They assemble 4-6 times during the year. All LAMKO’s members can run for the representatives and all LAMKO’s members can also vote in the election.
