Hello from Joensuu!
The year 2017 has been wonderful so far; busy but rewarding. This year has begun well with the new board of NESU-Optimi. Our new board consists of following members: new President is Eevi Kilpeläinen and Karita Hassinen works as a Communicator. Teemu Rekola takes care of marketing (including our Instagram account, remember to follow @nesuoptimi !) and Venla Koljonen is the Food Master. Stella Laukkanen is the Beverage Master and Reetta Saastamoinen is in charge of decorations.
NESU-KY ‘17 has 9 members of the board and 54 active members. Together we form a tight and amazing group. With this group, we organize all the traditional and some new events in 2017.
Our year began in January with our first event, Aktiivien harkkasitsit or Rehersal Sitzparty for Active Year. The sitzparty is a NESU-KY tradition, in which older NESU-KY members teach the new nesuits to sitz. The evening was a lot of fun and brought our year together as a group. One of the highlights of the sitzparty was an older member teaching us how to dance Anima Libera.
2017 has kicked off with a whole new board for NESU-Hanken I Vasa. The board has been expanded with one additional position: NESU-Hanken I Vasa now has its very own program coordinator! We spent most of January and indeed the beginning of February getting acquainted with each other and the new NESU-boards in Finland. Most of NESU-Hanken I Vasa’s board attended NESU-Dagen in January and we really had a great time. It was a pleasure making new friends and catching up with old friends. Kudos to NESU-Finanssi for a fantastic NESU-Dagen!
The beginning of the year 2017 has been very busy but the more rewarding for NESU-Finanssi. As the highlight of the Spring, in January we had the pleasure of hosting the NESU Dagen for the first time in six years. The night before we organized a “Royalty” sits party, where plenty of Dagen attendants were also present. At NESU Dagen the new NESU boards from all over Finland and Tallinn gathered in Oulu for this legendary weekend to network and familiarize themselves with their positions and duties in the board.
It has been a busy beginning of the year for NESU-Enklaavi. We’ve already organized a sits party and been to Oulu with other NESU boards from all over Finland. Right now we’re getting ready for our next sits party which will be held on the 24th of March, so only two more weeks to go!
