This is the highest level of decision within the union. 35 members, all of them active students at Chalmers, are annually elected through open elections and the meetings are led by a speaker of the council (talman).
The 35 members decide about the anunal budget for the union, strategic matters, constitution, policies and who eventually will lead the daily operations (kårledningen).
It can be hard to grasp what a difference these meeting contribute to sometimes. All students are welcome to the meetings and have the right to attend. After each meeting a short brief is presented, either in writing or other media.
Previous briefs are found on our YouTube channel. Minutes and current summon are located in Documents. If there are any specific questions regarding the Student Union Council e-mail the speaker of the council.
Brief, meeting #6 – 4 Mars 2020
This meeting was the last one for this operating year to be held on Lindholmen campus. Recruiting for the next generation of the student union council is still a big theme, and there was an interpellation for discussing the recruitment process for the election committé. As a result, a task force was assigned to investigate possibilities for improving this process.
There were two motions during this meeting, the first one was for updating labels on the toilets in the union buildings to better represent the diversity of sexual identities. And the other one regarded adding opinions to the opinion program regarding environment and climate. Both motions were passed.
Five propositions were brought up, firstly an update of the working procedures for the different council committés, which had been revised since Fum5. It was passed this time.
The second one was regarding a preliminary payment plan for the ones remunerated by the student union for the operational year of 2020/2021.
The third one was for the preliminary deposit into the building fund.
The fourth proposition regarded the determination of next year's tuition fee, and the last one was for determining indicator-values from last operational year. If you wonder what all of this means for you, feel free to have a look at the protocol available under “about us -> Documents”.
See you at FuM7!
