What is a Lumo team and how can I get involved?
Lumo teams are groups of residents that organise fun events and activities for all of the building’s residents. Your Lumo team is in charge of fun social activities at your building. Everyone is welcome to join the team – there are no restrictions on the number of members.
Lumo teams come up with ideas for activities that residents can do together and implement the ideas that the team chooses to go ahead with. Your ideas will always be heard in your Lumo team.
There is no unnecessary bureaucracy. You can forget about meeting protocols, minutes of meetings and accounting. Lumo will not ask for anything like that! The team itself decides how it operates.
The best part is that the Lumo team is provided with an annual budget of Lumo funds to cover the costs of activities.
The amount is determined based on the size of the housing company. Using the funds is very easy. The Lumo team is provided with an S-Business card for making purchases for the building’s events.
How to get involved with your building’s Lumo team
- Contact the property manager and ask whether there is a Lumo team in your building. The property manager’s contact information can be found on the noticeboard in the staircase or online on your building’s page at www.lumo.fi/asukkaalle.
- Your building’s property manager can provide you with the contact details of the Lumo Team Leader. Then you need to simply talk to the Lumo Team Leader in person, ring their doorbell or send a message to get involved in the Lumo team.
- If you don’t have a Lumo team at your building yet, ask the property manager to invite the residents to a meeting. In a joint meeting attended by the residents, you can start a Lumo team then and there.
Every Lumo team has a leader. The team works together and agrees on its division of tasks and responsibilities, but the team needs a leader to serve as the contact person with the property manager and, in some cases, Kojamo. The leader does not, however, have any formal responsibilities.
Lumo Team Leaders also have the option of joining the Facebook group for active residents and participating in events for Lumo Team Leaders.
