Introducing FOGCon

Published by under Conventions & Activities

A brand-new convention has arrived in San Francisco. FOGcon (“Friends of Genre” Con) is scheduled for March 11-13, 2011, so now’s the time to buy your membership. It’s a literary-themed San Francisco SF/F con in the tradition of Wiscon and Readercon, with Honored Guests ranging from writers to scientists to artists. We will build community, exchange ideas, and share our love for the literature of imagination.

For 2011, the inaugural guests are Pat Murphy and Jeff and Ann Vandermeer, with Fritz Leiber as the Ghost of Honor.

Bylaws Amendments Adopted

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.

No SFSFC SMOFCon Scholarship This Year

Published by under SMOFCon,SMOFcon Scholarships

SFSFC originally created its SMOFCon Scholarship Program to send promising Bay Area conrunners to the annual SMOFCon convention-runners conference, and while we have occasionally made awards to people outside of the San Francisco Bay Area, the scholarship has generally retained a Bay Area focus. Because this year’s SMOFCon is in San José (December 3-5, 2010 at the Sainte Claire Hotel), making it substantially easier for Bay Area fans with an interest in convention-running to attend, we have decided to not present a SMOFCon Scholarship in 2010.

We will revisit the SMOFCon Scholarship program in 2011.
