Happy Ruby Jubilee! Capricon is going to turn FORTY – and you can help us celebrate!
The Phandemonium Board is currently seeking qualified candidates for Con Chair of Capricon 40. Bring your most prized ideas to us, and we might give you the chance to turn them into a reality!
What does a good proposal involve?
1) A great theme – this is the seed from which a lot of the convention will grow, from guests and programming to film choices and special events. It should be distinct, versatile, and accessible to fans of all kinds.
2) Interesting guests – have a good idea of who you’d want to ‘headline’ the convention. 3-5 Guests of Honor is about standard (and within budget).
3) A solid presentation – you will need to explain your idea in person to the board and answer any questions we might have. Visual aids are not required – but they’re not discouraged, either.
We’re also interested in hearing about who you are, what convention leadership experience you have, and how you’ll make Capricon 40 a unique event for our membership.
Please email your initial proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 5th, so that they can be reviewed before your presentation to the board at the meeting on October 14th. You’re also welcome to use that email address if you have any questions for the board about this process.
Note: per Phandemonium bylaws, a Capricon Chair may not concurrently hold a position equivalent to Chair or Board Member of a similar science fiction corporation or convention.
Members of Phandemonium,
Every year, Capricon transforms the Westin Chicago Northshore into a big tent celebration of genre awesomeness. Magic you say? Not even. Awesome doesn’t just happen. Each Capricon begins as a cool idea that brings amazing people together to create exponentially more awesome.
Sound like a good time? It gets better. We are already preparing for Capricon 38, and we want YOU to make it awesome!
The Board of Phandemonium is currently seeking candidates for Con Chair of Capricon 38: Have you ever said, “If I ran this convention….?” or “You know what I think?” Then consider running a Capricon! We are currently seeking qualified candidates to apply for Chairperson of Capricon 38 in 2018. Contact email@example.com for more information. Please submit your proposals by August 31 so we can review them In time for the September Phandemonium Board meeting. We will select the Capricon 38 Con Chair at that time.
Thank you all for your continued support and enthusiasm! There would literally be no Capricon without you. See you all next February!
