On the 1st of September, the union board had its first meeting. In this meeting, the fulltimers gave a report on their work during the summer. Then, the board approved the year’s first application to the special initiative fund, from the Science Choir, and updated the contact information in the crisis management guideline. A significant part of the meeting was spent on planning for the year ahead, first by setting the board’s meeting dates, and then by concretizising the operational plan. Ten different working groups were created within the board, to work with everything from investigating the study environment at the faculty to organising events and updating our regulatory documents. The board members had some pizza to help them get through this very long meeting.
