Committee Nominations

Many of the current FUPS committee members will be stepping down from their positions this year and so FUPS is looking for a group of keen, palaeo-loving and committed people to take over running the society!

There are several committee positions available and all are open for applications. Each position plays a different role in running the society so if you are creative and social, you may be interested Palaeo in the Pub Coordinator. Maybe, if you are good with numbers and interested in how a society runs financially, you might consider applying for Treasurer. And if you are organised, committed and eager, the role of President might be the one for you. So check out the different positions and find the one that suits you!

There are no requirements for previous experience so if you haven't done anything like this before, then that is okay. Previous committee members will be available in the Palaeontology lab at Flinders and via email to assist and answer any questions throughout the year. All you need is an interest in palaeontology and the society.
