Westercon 66 Joins SFSFC Fold

Westercon 66, the 2013 West Coast Science Fantasy Conference, has been adopted as part of the SFSFC corporate family and will be run as a committee of SFSFC, like the two past Westercon run by SFSFC. Convention co-chairs Kevin Roche and Andy Trembley will continue to run Westercon 66, which will be held at a yet-to-be-determined site in the Sacramento, California area.

The Westercon 66 bid was awarded to a committee headed by Roche and Trembley by a vote of the Westercon 64 Business Meeting after no eligible bid won the regular site-selection election. Kevin and Andy came to the SFSFC Board of Directors asking if SFSFC would be willing to the sponsoring non-profit, tax-exempt corporation behind Westercon 66, and the Board voted at their July 30 meeting to bring Westercon into the corporate fold and to confirm Kevin and Andy as committee co-chairs.

Published by under Uncategorized

The SFSFC Board of Directors adopted two bylaw amendments at their meeting on November 20, 2010.

  • The corporation’s fiscal year now ends on the last day of March instead of June, effective immediately. (This creates a short fiscal year July 1, 2010-March 31, 2011.)
  • The Board now has increased flexibility in setting the size of the Board of Directors to any number between and including 7 and 13 members. (The SFSFC Board currently consists of 11 members.)

Details of the newly-adopted changes are in Articles 9 and 3, respectively, of the updated SFSFC Bylaws.
