Convention Running Seminars


The members of WesternSFA are happy to share our hard earned knowledge about fan-run conventions. While most of us are experienced in running Science Fiction, Anime, and Gaming conventions, the basics of a volunteer run convention cross all genres. Three times during the year, usually in February, June and October, we hold day-long seminars covering the various aspects of volunter events. Notes from some of our past seminars can be found here

WesternSFA is happy to present seminars tailored to your group's needs at your invitation.
