Progress Reported

Westercon 74 has published Progress Report 1, available for download from Westercon 74's Publications page. This is a small PR, designed as a booklet and intended to be printed double-sided on an 8 1/2 x 11-inch sheet of paper and folded twice.

An e-mail notice has gone out to all of Westercon 74's members who provided an e-mail address. Paper copies were mailed on Monday to those members for whom we had no e-mail address. We'll also mail paper copies to those members with e-mail addresses who requested paper copies, although probably not until early February.

The most important news in the PR is that Westercon 74's membership rates are going up at the end of February 2020, and the special discount for those people who voted in Westercon site selection at SpikeCon in Layton last year expires then as well. So if you voted in site selection but haven't yet taken advantage of the $10 conversion to attending, now's the time to get it done, because starting March 1, 2020, the extra discount goes away, and thereafter, voters (and any other supporting members) who convert to attending will pay whatever the current attending membership prices is minus the $20 they've already paid.
