The day-to-day business of Finanssi is coordinated by an 11-member board of directors, or “the Board”. The term of the Board is the calendar year. You can contact the Board via personal e-mail addresses or their joined mailing list at firstname.lastname@example.org. The members of the 2023 board of directors and their contact details are listed here.
Board of Directors
The official organs of Finanssi are the general assembly and the board of directors. The general assembly elects the board of directors, which in turn follows the yearly plan of operations devised in accordance with the long-term guidelines. The board of directors decides on budgeting, official statements, and proposals from members in their meetings. The board of directors meets to discuss the matters for assemblies and to plan the activities in their evening sessions. The members of the board of directors are rewarded for their work by study credits. Being a member of the board is all about working and experiencing things together, and the skills and networks built there are definitely useful in the future.
Some members of the board also chair their own committees, and thus, their responsibilities are divided between the members of their committee. These are the responsibilities of each member of the board:
The responsibilities of a chairperson include chairing the meetings and coordinating Finanssi’s activities as a whole. Additionally, long-term planning is an important task of the chair. The chairperson also represents Finanssi for its interest groups, such as OYY and Suomen Ekonomit.
