2018 Westercon Business Meeting Video

The 2018 Westercon Business Meeting considered four items of substantive business this year. You can watch the video of the meeting on this YouTube playlist:

The results of the proposals (see the 2018 Agenda for full text of proposals) were:

  • C.1. Membership Numbers (to clarify usage of members’ membership numbers by convention committees): Failed
  • C.2. First Full Day (to clarify the meaning of the phrase “first full day” in the Bylaws): Failed
  • C.3. Bidders at Site Selection Table (requires bidders to provide at least one poll-watcher during at-convention site selection voting): Passed
  • C.4. Westercon for All North America (would redefine scope of convention so that it could be held anywhere in North America): Postponed Indefinitely (killed without a direct vote; can be re-introduced at a future Westercon)

The proposal that passed this year must be ratified at Westercon 72 in Layton, Utah before it becomes part of the Westercon Bylaws.
