Official Positions

The new board is always elected at the end of the year during the statuary fall meeting, and the term of office begins at the turn of the year. Every year before the autumn meeting, an Get to know Matrix -event is organized. The evening is an informal event where people get to know each other and meet new and old actives. During the evening, you can also express your interest in positions within Matrix.

Representatives are mainly elected at the board's organizational meeting in December, but the board can also appoint representatives at other meetings throughout the year. Even if you cannot join the board in the middle of the year, you can still get involved in  organizing the activities as a representative. You can get involved by attending meetings, joining the matrix-ry email list, participating in events, and simply offering your help or ideas.

The board itself is elected according to the rules at the autumn meeting, including a chairman, vice chairman, secretary, treasurer, 0-6 other members, and 0-6 deputy members. Being a representative does not require being a member of the board, as there are only a limited number of positions in the board. Nowadays, the difference between being a board member and a non-board member is small, but each board naturally considers its own organization.

Matrix Official List

The list is incomplete because the number of representatives depends entirely on the number of willing participants – there is a position for everyone interested. For example, an international travel representative could be added to the list if someone wants to organize a trip outside of Finland.

The tasks listed under the titles are the so-called basic tasks of the respective representative. The brainstorming, planning, and practical implementation of larger tasks are done together. Assistance is requested and received, if one cannot do it, someone else will.

Being a representative is incredibly fun, you get to know new people and learn a lot of new things. In a resume, involvement in organization activities looks good, and active participation can also earn study credits.

The main thing is that you are interested. Come join us!
