  1. Changes to the AYY Association Regulation

The AYY Representative Council decided at their meeting 7/2017, held on the 2nd of November, to change the stipulations in the association regulation regarding the number of members in associations and the responsibility of keeping the Student Union up to date on the number of members. The exact requirement, 7 members, previously only concerned associations on the first list. The same requirement was now extended to concern associations also on the second list. So, from now on, second list associations must also have at least 7 members that belong to AYY. However, the requirement of at least 60% of members with the right to vote being members of the Student Union only applies when the association belongs to the first list.

To check and update the number of members, a stipulation was added for all associations about informing the Student Union on member numbers and percentages of members that belong to AYY as part of the association notice. This means that the member lists will be under scrutiny in the upcoming association notice check-up during the spring of 2018. The inspection of the association notices is based on the information submitted to the TAHLO system by the associations, same as before.

Revised association regulation: https://inside.ayy.fi/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=12615842

Association newsletter for the week 51/2017

If you want to receive AYY’s association newsletter to your e-mail, please subscribe at http://list.ayy.fi/mailman/listinfo/yhdistykset.

Content of the newsletter

  1. Advance booking of AYY’s facilities rented on a one-time basis

 

  1. Advance booking of AYY’s facilities rented on a one-time basis to start on 1 December!

The advance booking of AYY’s facilities rented on a one-time basis for associations will start on Friday 1st December 2017. Advance bookings are organised by using AYY’s own booking system TILA.

You can make advance reservations for the period Mon, 8 January 2018 – Sun, 12 August 2018.

The schedule for facility reservations in the system is as follows:

  1. AYY’s internal operators, reservation period 9 November – 30 November 2017.
    The reservation period ends at 11.59pm on Thu, 30 November 2017.
  2. Special status associations 1 December – 12 December 2017.
    The reservation period begins at 12noon on Fri, 1 December and ends at 2pm on Tue, 12 December. The booking session will be held at AYY’s office in Otaniemi from 4.30 pm onwards on Tue, 12 December 2017.
  3. Other associations in the 1stlist on 13 December – 18 December 2017.
    The reservation period begins at 12 midnight on Wed, 13 December and ends at 2pm on Mon, 18 December 2017.The booking session will be held in the Bachelor Building (Otakaari 1) hall M1 (M232) from 4.30pm onwards on Mon, 18 December 2017.

A few notes about the making of reservations:

  1. TILA can be found at https://tila.ayy.fi/ and the users log in with Aalto University’s IT username, using the same logging system as when using Into, for example. The easiest way to get started is to read the instructions behind the Instructions/Help link in the menu bar at the top of the page.
  2. In advance booking, facilities are reserved under the name of associations. The activation key has been sent to the email address provided by an association (usually this is the mailing list address of the association board) already in the spring, so the person who has handled the facility bookings of the association this year may distribute representation rights through TILA if necessary.
  3. If you receive representation rights fora group, the message subject is ”TILA: Activation key for group GROUPNAME”. The activation key can only be used once, so the person who has first logged on to the system may add representation rights to suitable persons in the group in order to make reservations. The reservation right is only activated for the associations which have filled out the association notice and whose information has been updated to the association register this year.
  4. Enter the event name in the reservation. If there is no name, the event may be deleted if there are several reservations for the same date at the later stages of the booking session.
  5. Please note that AYY’s internal reservations are mainly permanent.
  6. Any reservations for anniversaries and anniversary brunches made by special status associations take priority compared to other reservations made by other associations. Reservations made by special status associations will be confirmed when that reservation period ends. In the first booking session we will clarify the duplicate reservation of special status associations.The special status associations do not have to come to defend their reservations to the second booking session.
  7. Duplicate bookings can only be made within the reservation periods. After the end of the reservation period, associations can edit, delete or add new reservations which do not overlap with other reservations. Any duplicate reservations can be cancelled by using your own username in the advance booking session, so please bring your laptop in order to get the event running smoothly.
  8. Only reserve the facility for times when you really need it. If possible, please avoid reservations for the following times:
    1. PO has rehearsals at Smökki every Monday at 6pm-9pm and RWBK every Tuesday at 5pm-10pm. So please avoid sitsit on Mondays and Tuesdays!
    2. The multi-purpose facility and tatami hall are actively used by trainers on a daily basis between 4pm and 11pm. Reservations before 4pm are usually available.
  9. The prices for internal operators and associations will stay the same as in 2017. Price list can be found here: https://ayy.fi/en/students/services/rental-of-facilities/price-list/
  10. System instructions are available in Finnish and English. The implementation of the Swedish interface and instructions are in progress. In addition, TILA system is being further developed. Users are asked to report about detected problems, inconsistencies in the text or development ideas to the address tila (at) ayy.fi.

Please note! Due to renovations there are some exceptions:

  • Gorsu can not be booked for the following time period: 8.1.-12.8.2018

AYY’s association training in English will be held on 7th of December from 4 pm to 7 pm at AYY’s office (Otakaari 11, Espoo (upstairs)).

The training will include communications and the basics for association work, but you can also wish for specific topics.

The target group is English speaking association actives and the space is limited (approx. 20 persons), so please attend only if you are in the target group. Max. 4 persons per association.

If there are more than four persons in your association’s actives that are in the target group and they wish to participate, please contact the organizational affairs specialist Ahto Harmo (ahto.harmo@ayy.fi) and we will work something out.

Sign up closes on Tuesday 5th of Dec at 8 am.

 

 

  1. AYY’s customer service facilities under renovation in Otaniemi!

 

Otaniemi’s central office will undergo alterations in November. The service point located downstairs will be moved to the second floor, which means that you can handle your issues related to housing and to other member services on the same floor in the future. Associations’ mailboxes can also be found on the second floor of the Central Office in the future. The storage space upstairs is limited, so we would like to remind you that the service office is not the place for lost property. Lost valuables should be mainly delivered to the police’s lost property office, and e.g. lost bus cards can be returned to the bus driver.

The new, wonderful service office will open its doors on the second floor of the Central Office on Monday, the 13th of November 2017 at 12:00 noon – welcome!

Contact information and opening times for the Otaniemi member services can be found on AYY’s website: https://ayy.fi/en/contact-information/service-points/otaniemi/

 

 

  1. #LuovutusAalto vol. 2 still under way for November!

 

 

Nearly a thousand voluntary blood donors are needed every weekday to make sure that about 50,000 seriously ill patients receive the treatment they need every year. That is why the Aalto University Student Union is once again challenging all associations active within AYY to donate blood for the common good!

The autumn LuovutusAalto challenge started on the 2nd of October, and you can donate until the 30th of November. Like in the spring, the associations that have donated the most blood, both quantitatively and in percentage terms in relation to their number of members, are awarded the use of one of AYY’s sauna facilities for one night, a diploma from the Finnish Red Cross – and of course glory and adoration! All donors also receive an overall patch from the Finnish Red Cross. In addition, groups that have donated at least 10 times during the year will receive a diploma and their names will be put up on the Blood Service website.

For more detailed participation instructions and registering your VeriRyhmä group, please visit: https://ayy.fi/en/blog/2017/10/19/luovutusaalto-vol-2/
