The administrative authority and executive power of the student union is wielded by the Board, which is elected by the Representative Council for a term that lasts one calendar year. It directs the day-to-day activity of the student union and is responsible for executing the AYY action plan. The Board is the most visible part of the student union and it oversees AYY administration and exercises executive power within the guidelines set by the AYY constitution and the Representative Council. The Board is responsible to the Council for all its actions. Each Board Member has one or more sectors they are responsible for.

The Board aims to convene weekly during academic terms. Resolutions of the meetings can be viewed on the official notice board of AYY as well as on this website.
