General Assembly of the National Union of Students in Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences SAMOK

The highest decision-making power in our union is exercised by the General Assembly. Students from 23 universities of applied sciences come to the event to represent their student unions. The General Assembly is a thrilling and somewhat exhausting event, but definitely also one of the highlights of the year!

The agenda of the General Assembly of 2023 includes, among other things, SAMOK’s action plan and personnel appointments for 2024.

SAMOK’s General Assembly will be held on 26–27 October 2023 in Rovaniemi. The Assembly will start with a pre-event gathering and a candidate panel discussion on Wednesday 25 October.

You can participate in the General Assembly on social media by using the hashtag #samokliko.
