  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

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

  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/

Also join the Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1932875113700076/

Associations registered so far in AYY’s system: Guild of the Cross, Forest Products Guild, Aalto Predators, Inkubio, Prosessiteekkarit, Guild of Automation and Systems Technology and Teekkarispeksi (Veijon Luovutus). The Guild of Electrical Engineering has also signed up through the Blood Service.

Take part in the competition and help others! J

  1. Joint event portal for all associations

AYY has agreed to cooperate more closely with the Bailataan.fi ticket sales service. Thanks to the partnership, we can offer all associations in the Student Union’s association register the opportunity to gather signups and sell tickets to events affordably and handily both online and via mobile.

Bailataan.fi was chosen naturally as a partner due to their knowledge of the student event scene and the tools offered by their service. Event signups can be collected privately via a link or they can be advertised publicly on the Bailataan.fi web pages.

Our aim is to give each student of the Aalto University an easy and equal opportunity to sign up and buy tickets to events, regardless of time or place. We also want to accommodate those students who cannot make it to the university campus to buy tickets during sales events held in lobbies.

The Bailataan.fi event portal suits both small and big events alike, and it can be used for sitsit, appro events and other events in addition to traditional event signups.

The price of the service for associations is 2% + 0.15€ per sold ticket (normally 2.95% + 0.25€ per sold ticket). The service package includes free customer service and support. No monthly subscriptions or other fees.

You can start using the service straight away by setting up a Bailataan.fi account for your association. You can set up an account at https://bailataan.fi/#!/sales. You do not need to make a separate contract with the service provider.

For more information on the service, please contact Kassu La Habana Reyes (045 6313726, kassu at treanglo.com) or Arttu Väisänen (040 8413145, arttu at treanglo.com).

Bailataan.fi is the most popular student event ticket sales channel in Finland. It is used by more than 150 student organizations and associations in 20 cities and more than 50 000 students around Finland. The service is designed especially with the needs of student associations in mind and can be used for events of all sizes. Find out more at https://bailataan.fi.

2. Curriculum planning training Oct 18th

Listening to students is an important part of the curriculum process, and this autumn, all the degree programs are preparing a new two-year curriculum. AYY will organize a training session for students about the curriculum process, how to take part in the process and the basic concepts of the curriculum.

The training is especially useful for persons responsible for educational affairs in associations, both present and future ones, as well as for chairpersons. The reform will concern all degree programs, so make sure that you have someone from your association attending and hearing more about it!

More information about the training and registration can be found here: https://lomake.ayy.fi/koulutuspolitiikka/opetussuunnitelmakoulutus-11-10-18-10/

3. Come work at the Teekkarisillis!

We offer associations the opportunity to make some money at the Teekkari Tradition Party’s Teekkarisillis.

We need a group of at least 15 eager people to work at the Teekkarisillis on the 11th of November from 8:00 to 22:00. The work includes everything from the morning arrangements to cooking and cleaning. We will pay a compensation of 1000€ to the association for their work.

If your association is unable recruit the required number of workers for the Teekkarisillis, you can also split the job between two associations. It would be best if one association could handle the whole job, however.

If you want to sign up or have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
