The Nation Meeting
The Nation Meeting is the nation’s highest governing body. It’s held twice per semester and all members of Kalmar Nation are welcome and allowed to vote. The nation meetings are where budgets are approved and balancing books closed. It is also where new members of the kuratel, as well as foremen, are elected.
The Board of Seniors:
The board of seniors is akin to a company board and is the highest governing body, second only to the nation meetings. Their job is to oversee the job the kuratel does as well as supporting them in their efforts. The board of seniors is comprised of seven members, the Inspector, the Proinspector, the Kurator, Prokurator ekonomi and Prokurator social. The Källarmästare and Notarie are always co-opted and the Notarie is the designated secretary at meetings. The seven members of the board are also folded into five branches, each overseeing a part of the nation’s activity. The five branches are purchasing, economy, PR, novisch- and activity and spex.
