The search for the Annual Ball Committee 2020 is now open!

How would you feel about organizing KY’s most extravagant party of the year? Next February it is time for KY’s 109th anniversary, and we are hiring!

The application period for the chairman candidates starts this Monday, the 23rd of September and ends 6th of October. The committee members’ application period starts on the 23rd of September and continues until the 13th of October. Last year the committee’s positions besides the chairman included graphic design, corporate relations, catering, communications, decorations, program and invites.

“Applying for the chairman of the Annual Ball Committee last year has been one of the best decisions I have ever made at KY. Working with an amazing team was insanely fun and seeing the end result with all the guests smiling, laughing, taking pictures and simply enjoying the event was something that cannot be described with words.

As the chairman you are responsible for taking charge of the overall budget and concept of the event, the music, the theme and the program to name a few. This means scheduling the meetings and assisting the Committee members with whatever is needed, as well as making sure that everything gets done in time. The chairman also chooses the committee members together with the Culture Producer. Being a chairman is a great opportunity to make the Annual Ball look just like what you have hoped and planned and at the same time influence how KY is presented to outsiders. You will also have a good overall view of the event and all the work involved in the five-month period of putting the event together.

The chairman position is perfect for anyone who loves large scale projects and events, spending money and of course getting things done. I highly recommend everyone interested to apply, either chairman or committee position. Organizing the crown jewel of KY is truly something that you will never forget.”

– Arttu Lääkkölä, Chairman of the Annual Ball Committee 2019, KY108
