Liveri board

Liiveri's board meets monthly to decide on the projects to be financed. The member's term of office lasts three years, the chairman is elected annually. About a third of the members resign each year.

Once a year, the members of the association meet to elect new members to the board. A third of the board members are elected from the representatives of municipalities, a third from representatives of companies and communities, and a third from rural residents. In addition, equal representation of different regions is ensured. We also try to keep the gender and age distribution even.

Liiver has two divisions under the board, whose special expertise the board utilizes in its decision-making. In addition, the divisions have an important role as cooperation networks.

Business division

The business division's task is to support the business implementation of Liiveri's strategy. The business division informs, activates, aligns and evaluates matters concerning business projects and business subsidies. The division can issue statements and take initiatives, but it has no decision-making power regarding projects. The business division, for example, acts in an expert role when assessing the impact of business subsidies on the competitive situation.

The business division's term of office is three years. The business division consists of Liiveri's board members, the region's business ombudsmen, representatives of the New Business Center and South Ostrobothnia Entrepreneurs, and Liiveri's employees.
