Convention Anti-Harassment Policies

Published by under Policies

In recent weeks the SF&F blogosphere has spent a lot of time talking about anti-harassment policies at conventions. In particular John Scalzi adopted a minimum requirements policy that he will demand of any convention that invites him to attend. SFWA has suggested that its members might wish to adopt similar policies.

SFSFC does not run conventions itself. Rather it charters other bodies to run conventions under its corporate umbrella. These conventions can vary considerably in size, from 100-person relaxacons to Worldcons with thousands of attendees. Crafting a single policy to suit all types and sizes of convention would not be easy. Nevertheless, SFSFC requires all its conventions to be safe and welcoming spaces. To this end, in 2012 we adopted general guidelines for anti-harassment policies that all chartered conventions much use to develop their own policies. It is our belief that following these guidelines will enable a convention to abide by the requirements set by John Scalzi and others.

To date, only one convention has taken place under that policy. That was Westercon 66. Their code of conduct can be found here .

RIP Wombat

Published by under Uncategorized

On February 23, 2013 in Albany, New York, one of ConFrancisco’s Guests of Honor, jan howard finder (known as “Wombat”), died after a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 73 years old. His obituary in the Albany Times-Union includes the 1993 Worldcon as one that “[solidified] his place in the ranks of fan culture” and details his interests and activities in Fandom. SFSFC sends our condolences to his girlfriend, Lin Daniel, and shares our regret in the passing of one of Fandom’s colorful figures.

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.
