Our Legacy

On this page, you can find the previous board members, officers, and actives involved in ESN Lappeenranta. These people contributed to communities of LUT and LAB Universities, domestic and international student movements, and our local, national, and international Erasmus Student Network sections.

Board members are legally responsible for the organization’s life and activities. Usually, board members are previous officers who contributed to the organization and went voluntarily to the next level through the voting process at the organization’s annual meeting.

Officers are the board’s helpers with exact areas of responsibility. After the formal application, the officer is elected to the position at the board meeting.

Active members are helpers of board members and officers without any specific field of responsibility.
