The decision-making organs of the Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS) on the foundation level are the Board of Directors and the Council. The Council meets twice a year in order to approve the annual report, balance sheet and income statement, as well as the plan of action, budget and the long-term economic plan. The Council also appoints the Board of Directors. The term of the current Council will end on 31 Dec 2015. The term of the new Council is 1 Jan 2016-31 Dec 2017. The Council operates in Finnish.
