The SOM organises monthly meetings in Utrecht. Here, students active in student & employee representation bodies coming from all over the country assemble in order to discuss the status quo of representation and issues regarding education.
Each year, the SOM together with the National Assembly of University Parties (Dutch acronym: LOF), organise a number of nationwide training activities for students active in student councils: the AtWorkWeekend (Dutch acronym: IWW), and the Seasoned Student & employee representation Day (Dutch acronym: DMD).
Support and training
The SOM serves to provide assistance when questions are submitted, and to offer tips and advice on issues brought forward by students active in representation. Additionally, the SOM is allowed to offer training sessions, for example regarding the rights and duties associated with student & employee representation, but also regarding conference techniques, elections and successions.
