We Still Need Concom Help

We have new concom members!

Heather and Melissa and Sasha and Montse and Zach, we are so glad you have joined us.

There’s still work looking for people to do it

The thing we need most urgently, right now, is someone in charge of Social Media. (Have you noticed that our social media is a little thin and sometimes patchy? Yeah…)

We also need people to be in charge the Consuite; the Safety Team; Local Publicity and Distance Publicity.

So, please send email to volunteers@fogcon.org with any questions or to let us know you're interested.

(And we’ll absolutely need at-con volunteers! We’ll talk about that when we get closer to March.)

It’s Time to Suggest Programming

Go! Go! Register yourself for FOGcon and suggest programs. Unlike many cons, this con runs on membership suggestions. You are not committing yourself to be on a panel that you suggest! Please make suggestions! Remember that our theme for FC9 is “Friendship” - but don't limit yourself -- we want *all* your ideas!"

(We’ll open up voting soon, have no fear.)
