Deadline Day

Today is the final day to submit new business to the 2018 WSFS Business Meeting. The Secretary, who makes the agenda, is now on the road, so it will probably be at least one day before whatever new business arrives today makes it into the published agenda. But after today, if you still want to propose new items, you have to deal with making your own copies, and you have to either convince the Chair (Tim Illingworth, not me) to let you propose it, or else get two-thirds of the people at the Business Meeting to Suspend the Rules to allow the introduction of your late business.

Personally, I have some hope that we might manage to get through the entire agenda by the end of the day on Sunday (12:30, in order to make time for the Worldcon Chairs Photo Session) and not have to use the "overflow" session on Monday. Until 2015, we hadn't hadn't gone to overtime since 1992, but since then, we've done so every year. Maybe we'll get lucky this year and not make people get up early on Monday a fourth meeting.
