Programming still looking for panelists. Have you ever gone to a science fiction convention and wondered, “Why don’t they have a panel about X, Y, or Z?” Or “I knew more about that show than the panelists. I could have done a better job.” Well here is your chance. Capricon is looking for panelists for next February’s convention.
If you would like to be on a panel, your starting point is http://capricon.org/capricon35/programming/ – note that you do have to create an account (which will be used for registration as well) in order to complete the survey. You do not need to purchase a membership prior to complete the survey though.
If any of you would like to be on programming, or have ideas for panels, please fill out the questionnaire or submit your idea(s) via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
