SUBCOMMITTEES ARE LOOKING FOR CHAIRPERSONS AND SECRETARIES FOR THE YEAR 2019
The Student Union’s (JYY) subcommittees are looking for chairpersons and secretaries for the year 2019. The chairpersons and secretaries of the subcommittees are an important part of each sector of JYY and they can directly influence the activities of our student union. They also have the opportunity to develop the subcommittees’ operations. Trainings for the positions will be organized in the beginning of next year and JYY’s board and specialists will provide their support throughout the year.

For example: Merry Christmas wishes Siskot & Simot and Matti.
