Election Results!

Norwescon 40 is a wrap and we look forward to planning the next one! The election results for Norwescon 41 are as follows:

Chair: Loree Parker
Vice Chair: Tonya Clark
Guest of Honor Selection Committee:
Jackie Nordquist
Katrina Marier

Also, the proposed bylaw change proposed below was Approved (to add the Special Events Director as a voting member):

F. Guest of Honor Selection Committee. The voting members of this committee shall consist of the Program Director, who shall chair this committee, the Chairman, the Vice-Chairman, the Special Events Director, and two representatives elected by the Convention Committee concurrently with the election of Officers. These two representatives shall not be Officers of the Convention as defined in Article Three, Section One. This committee may, from time to time, invite non-voting consultants to participate.

The Norwescon Volunteer Appreciation Picnic will be held on July 15th at Steel Lake Park in Federal Way from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Not a volunteer yet?

Locus Awards Weekend!

The Locus Awards are a science fiction and fantasy literary award polled by the readers of Locus Magazine since 1971. The awards are presented at a banquet MC'd by the witty and entertaining Connie Willis. An autograph session, panel discussions with leading authors, and an annual Hawaiian shirt contest are highlights of the event. Attending memberships are $60 include a six month digital subscription to Locus Magazine (February to August 2017 issues). In addition, the Locus Writers Workshop will be taking place the same weekend with instructors Connie Willis and Carrie Vaughn. More details are available at Locus Awards Weekend.

Norwescon is proud to be a sponsor for the Locus Awards Weekend.
