Savings Banks’ Union Coop Supervisory Board
The central institution’s Supervisory Board comprises at least 9 and at most 35 members selected by the cooperative meeting. Each member has a designated deputy. The Supervisory Board’s members’ term of office is one year.
The function of the Supervisory Board is to oversee the administration of the central institution, which is the responsibility of the Board of Directors and Managing Director, and to ensure that the operation of the central institution is conducted competently and diligently in accordance with the Cooperatives Act and for the benefit of the central institution and the Amalgamation. A particular task of the Supervisory Board is to maintain and promote internal cooperation. The Supervisory Board may provide the Board of Directors with guidance in issues that are wide-reaching or important in terms of policy.
A further task of the Supervisory Board is to issue a statement to the cooperative meeting on the Savings Banks Group’s strategy and other common goals and operational policies, to approve the guidelines on the inspection activities and the operational principles of the inspections of the Savings Banks Amalgamation, as well as provide the annual General Meeting of of the Savings Banks’ Union Coop with a statement on the annual financial statements and annual report.
The Supervisory Board confirms its rules of procedure, which define its practical duties in more detail.
The Supervisory Board convenes on the invitation of the chairman, or if the chairman is indisposed, the vice-chairman or the Board of Directors, and a quorum is reached if more than half the members are present. A decision is formed when more than half of those present are in favour of a view, or, if the vote is hung, the view supported by the chairman. Minutes are kept of the meetings, containing the names of those present, decisions made, and the results of any votes.
Customarily, the Supervisory Board meets 3–4 times a year. The matters addressed at the meetings are mostly prepared by the Board of Directors of the central institution and proposed by the Managing Director.
