Connecting International Finns and Finnish Internationals

Join the Board

INTOs Board is a fun bunch of people that consists of ~9 board members and ~25 officers. Every year around April-May we open the call for the Board and Officers for the next board term.

Want to volunteer to improve the international Teekkari community on the campus? Perhaps get new friends and to be able to develop your skills in a low pressure environment? Have some talent that you want to put to good use? INTOs Board is the place for you to be!

Below you will find information on the structure of INTO, what it means to be on the board, descriptions of the different roles and instructions on how to apply!

▼ Apply for the Board for the term 2023-2024! Applications open until 11.04.!

It’s been a blast of a year with a lot of amazing things that have happened. But as all good things in life, it is nearing the end of the Board term 2022-23 and thus it is time to select the next Board of INTO to sail the ship further to the future!
The board term starts on the 01.06.2023 and ends on 31.05.2024. To be eligible for the Board, you need to have a student status at the university at the time of the general meeting. You are expected to be available for the whole duration of the board term. Graduating during the term is okay.

The plan is to elect the board using a method called the “Former of the Board”. In this the Former of the Board applicants, (can be anyone, but usually the chairperson applicants) interview all the other applicants and bring forth their proposal of the composition of the board. Thus in the general meeting, first the Former of the Board is voted on, then the proposal for the Executive board is voted on.

The timeline for the Board call is as follows:23.03. Board Call opens
04.04. All the applications so far are published to the members
04.-09.04. The Former of the Board applicants interview other applicants
10.04. The board proposals of the Formers of the Board are published
11.04. The new board is chosen in the General Meeting.

Board applicant: To be able to equally partake in the interview process, submit your application through the form at the latest 03.04.! Late applications are possible and it is possible to apply even in the general meeting itself, but you won’t be guaranteed the same visibility as other applicants. We will publish late applications to the best of our ability.

Former of the Board applicant: You will be given instructions on the interview process closer to the application deadline. You have a responsibility to treat all the applicants equally and you will be questioned on your interview process in the general meeting.

For any questions regarding the application process, you can contact @lauriahlqvist on telegram, or send an email to
