Volunteer project coordinator - please help

We have recently been working with the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs who plan to include Ultimate as one of the sports in their national competition programme 2015-16.  The competition will see county and then regional qualification rounds leading to a finals event during the summer 2016 - and is likely to include betwen 500 and 1000 participants in the 16-26 age-range - almost all of whom will be completely new to Ultimate.  We are looking for an individual that could take on our side of coordinating this project.

Seeking volunteers for Women's Committee

UK Ultimate has been reviewing the role and functioning of its various sub-committees.  In recent years the women’s committee has been formed of largely high level players and had a lack of focus and direction.  We want to create a committee more representative of the women playing Ultimate in the UK at the moment and align it’s goals with the organisation's priorities.
