KORSON PALLOSEURA COMMENDS JUHA MATTILA
The executive director of Korson Palloseura since August 2015, Juha Mattila,
has given a formal notice of resignation, effective in July 2019. Juha will
return to hotel management business that he is already familiar with.
During his tenure, Juha has been the major factor in the development of
KOPSE, including for example, responsibility of the day-to-day management,
acquisition of KOPSE's first proprietary turf and setting up the shop
for sportswear, owned by KOPSE.
For many, both members and non-members, Juha has been the main contact point of
the football club. Juha has warmly welcomed many new players and officials
to the club.
The Board of the football club wants to thank Juha for his outstanding
work for KOPSE.
Juha will start preparing KOPSE for the transition and the Board will begin
the search for a new executive director. This is to ensure that despite the
change of the executive director, the services for teams and players will
continue to operate as smoothly as before. However, during this time we may
face situations where not everything runs as well as it should. We ask for
your patience during the coming weeks before the post has been filled and
a new person takes over the responsibilities.

Annual KOPSE Meeting
The autumn meeting took place in Ruusupaviljonki on 24.10.2018.
Mr. Petteri Forssell was selected to continue as the chairman of the board.
Mr. Santtu Vähälä was selected to continue as the vice chairman of the board.
New members of the board for their first two-year period are Mrs. Heidi Saarijärvi
and Mr. Antti Siitonen. New members of the board for their first one-year period are
Mrs. Anu Kallio and Mr. Jami Vahtera.
New rules of the club bring two deputy members of the board. The first deputy member
selected for two-year period is Jani Lehtinen. The second deputy member selected for
one-year period is Pasi Kinnunen. The first deputy member has the right to vote in the
board meetings if one member of the board is not present. If two members of the
board are absent or one member and the first deputy member is absent, the second
deputy member has the right to vote.
The reason for the one-year period selections made in this year's meeting is that
by the club rules, one half of the board members can be changed in the autumn meeting.
This synchronizes the member periods back to half and half.
The meeting accepted the financial statement of year 2017, which didn't complete
for the spring meeting. In addition,
the action plan for 2019 (fi)
and the budget plan for 2019 were accepted during the meeting. The annual fee increases
