  The term of office 2015-2016

During the year 2015 the situation of the council of Muotka-Rantakokko Association has changed. Four active council members have retired. One of them passed away, two of them retired for health reasons and one needed a pause after a long period of council work. Former secretary has started her work as chairman. There are two young members new in the council now. Unfortunately they reside in the Southern Finland and can't always travel to Muonio for the council meetings. There is a chance to take part in meetings through the internet via Skype. It has been difficult to find a new chairman and a new secretary for the Association. Still, a secretary is missing.

For continuing activities, like organizing a big family reunion or events of other themes, quite a big number of active members is needed. They are not possible to become true on behalf of a small group of people. A lot of work is to be done. In the annual meeting of the Association was decided, that the big family reunion can't be held during the summer 2016 in the present situation. Instead there is an utmost importance to finding a new secretary or chairman or both.

The present council members are:
Mervi Muotka, chairman
Katja Muotka, vice chairman
- Secretary can be a member out of the council.

Other members:
Olli Muotka, Virva Muotka, Veli Puranen and Anneli Ylipää

Debuty members:
Topi Kannasvuo and Asko Muotka
