SOUP

NFC is growing fast, and there is always need for more SOUP to go around with the STEW. But what exactly is the SOUP you ask?

SOUP is short for “Some Other Useful Personnel”: The name is to better reflect the word STEW and hopefully bring a laugh or two to possible future candidates that we find at the convention. However, joining as SOUP does not mean that you advance to become a STEW member right away. It is still a volunteer position.

But it will allow you to see how it is to be a STEW member for a short time. You may help both one or several departments.

It is a lot of fun. And you get to meet lots of new people!

Not only do you get a small sneak peek at what it's like to be a member of STEW, but you do also get to meet the STEW. And if you after the convention feel like this is something you would like to spend more time doing, you are more than welcome to ask the department you were working in, or you can contact Lumo at hr@nordicfuzzcon.org.

And for helping out as SOUP you will get a special lanyard and a cool pin! Unique to the SOUP.

Surely it sounds amazing? It is! SOUP is a lot of fun. And you might gain both new friends and new experiences.

To sign up to become a proud member of the SOUP, please go here.

There is also a Telegram group where leads and other members of the STEW will announce or ask when help is needed. It is also a good place to ask questions if there is anything you need to know.
