The Board of Residents represents all VVO Group residents at the national level. The Board of Residents guides resident cooperation and takes part in the development of Lumo services. In addition, the Board of Residents, meeting 4–5 times a year, provides development proposals and statements as the representative of residential management.
Regional tenant events were held in Lahti, Lappeenranta, Jyväskylä, Kuopio, Oulu, Rovaniemi and Turku, where the event also welcomed guests from Pori and Rauma. The joint event of Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, Järvenpää, Hämeenlinna and Tampere was held in Vantaa.
The interactive and discussion-focused events addressed the guests’ current living arrangements and their aspirations for the future. The topics discussed included the housing of the future and environmental and energy issues. The events, organised every other year, attracted some 550 guests.
In the summer, the major resident events again filled the Linnanmäki and Särkänniemi amusement parks. The national resident events culminated in the traditional Christmas concert tour in November–December.
