    • VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:
      The UFP would not be the place it is today without our volunteers who selflessly sacrifice their time to help out. Check out the currently open volunteer positions, and how to apply for one, here. If you don't find something there that aligns with your interests, you can always fill out the volunteer interest form to express your desire for something specific to help our community grow. Use the bottom section of the form for that and make sure you treat it just as importantly as an application for an open position. Put in as many details as possible and thank you for your interest!

The meeting will take place on Saturday June 12th at 21:00 BST, so please come along and attend if you are able for a night of information and laughs.

      If you have any questions or comments, then this is a great chance to bring them forward, or just listen in on what all of the divisions and departments have been doing recently! If you cannot attend but have a question you want to ask, you can send me a PM with the title "Community Meeting Question" and I'll make sure it’s asked during the Open Floor discussions. You will also be able to PM during the event if you have any last minute questions or points.

      The community meeting is an excellent opportunity for all members to witness the inner workings and discussions and is also a great chance for you to get YOUR voice heard. Each community meeting that has taken place in the past has been a huge success and we look forward to a great turnout. Even if you don't have a microphone, your questions and feedback will still be read and addressed, what you have to say is important to us.

      Myself, SFC and FEO very much look forward to your attendance, but if you can't make it, don't worry, minutes will be available to everyone afterwards.
