Duties of the Executive Board

The Board members manage the student union’s day-to-day activities with the student union’s specialists from TREY’s office in Hervanta. In addition to the day-to-day activities and leading their respective sectors, the executive board deals with the supervision of interests in the long term, and activities and is in charge of executing the plan of action.

TREY’s Executive Board is a working board, which means it is a full-time job with a compensation. When applying, please notice that studying while in the board is difficult due to scheduling and the workload.

The board is chosen for one calender year, but the orientation for next year’s tasks begins on this year. The bilingualism of TREY’s internal processes, operations and everyday life is still in its infancy. The administrative language of the Student Union is Finnish, but it is also possible to serve on the board for students who use English as their business language.
