Membership

Registration Info Member Directory

Membership goes up to the at-the-door price of $75 on July 1!

Online registration is now open at http://www.regonline.com/westercon66 !

Westercon operates on a membership model — everyone who attends is a member of the convention, and by our collective efforts and interaction we create the experience that is Westercon. (As opposed to a ticketed event, where there is often more of a “we paid our money, now entertain us” expectation from attendees).

Westercon has two basic types of memberships:

  • Supporting memberships, for members who won’t/can’t attend the weekend itself, but would like to stay informed, receive the convention publications, and be entitled to vote at the members’ rate in the site selection process for Westercon 68 in 2015 .
  • Attending memberships, for members who want all of the above and plan to attend the weekend as well; it includes admission to all of the regular events, exhibits and activities during the convention. Supporting memberships can be upgraded to attending memberships by paying the difference in membership fees at the time of upgrade (even at the door).

Other memberships
We offer free admission to Kids-In-Tow (children under 7, with an accompanying adult), and reduced rate for Youth memberships (ages 7-12).

Single Day Memberships

  • Thursday: $25
  • Friday: $30
  • Saturday: $30
  • Sunday: $25

Single-day memberships  will be good for one day and associated evening. For instance, a membership bought Friday morning would be good for Friday day and evening. One bought after 4 PM on Friday would be good for Friday evening plus Saturday. The availability of single-day memberships depends on the number of full weekend attendees vs the capacity of our venue.
Single Day memberships will be available in the online system beginning July 1.

*We had originally expected to set the supporting membership rate at $25 (the same as the voting fee), but our budget required it be slightly higher.

  3. Just paid my registration so I’m now an official member whether I get to work or not, even though I hope I do. Yippee!!!!

  4. I’m registered — a load off my mind. Now for how I’ll get there and where I’ll stay. I wonder if we could charter a bus from the South Bay so I could travel with a busload of fen?

    Live long and prosper,

  5. I would like to get advance information about your dealers room and art show. I plan to attend if I can free my calendar for that summer. Thanks.

    Through what date is the current registration rate good? Trying to decide if I should buy now, or if I can hold off for a bit.

    • It will be good for a bit longer, we’re crunching numbers now. I wouldn’t wait too long though. Note that several of the special offers we have out there will be expiring soon.

  7. Is there a deadline for registering online?

  8. How much is a single-day youth membership? Would you please add that to your website? Thanks.

  9. Where and when is badge pickup for pre-reg members? The Search function cannot find it.
