Staff, SLK, Board


One of the ÖSM’s core principles is that it is student-led. It is intended that students reach out to other students. However, the student groups (and especially their leaders) receive support from their respective staff member. Each staff member is responsible for the groups within a certain region, as well as an area of the ÖSM’s overall work.
The general secretary oversees the work done by the ÖSM. He is responsible for the goals, organization, staff care and evaluation of the entire ÖSM ministry.

Student executive committee (SLK)

The national “Student executive committee” (Studentenleitungskreis/SLK) is comprised of the leaders of every city group in Austria. This committee meets once every semester to make decisions about strategic nationwide activities, as well as to exchange experiences and encourage one another. The SLK is lead by the SLK leader or the SLK leadership team (the leadership-leadership-team, so to speak).

Damaris (SLK leader)

Areas of responsibility: SLK weekend, coordinating the student leaders in Austria

Besides its legal function, the board’s main responsibility is supervision. It is comprised of honorary members who were usually actively involved with the ÖSM when they were students.
