available immediately: 4 Smofcon memberships + hotel room

Fans of color/non-white fans: the following free memberships are available now, first-come first-served:

Smofcon 35, December 1-3, 2017, Boston, MA, USA. Smofcon is a weekend of panels and workshops on conference planning; this year’s theme is Lessons Learned, identifying conventions issues and implementing solutions. The primary aims of the workshop are to increase convention leadership capabilities within the community, to provide a safe space where difficult questions can be honestly discussed, and to help convention chairs build connections with their peers.

Smofcon has donated four memberships to Con or Bust, and would like to hear from people ASAP so that recipients can participate in panels. In addition, Arisia has donated one hotel room (two double beds) to Con or Bust; the hotel room should be requested during the next request-assistance period, which is November 1st-10th, 2017 (if it is not claimed during that time, it will be put up for first-come first-serve, as it must be claimed by Friday, November 24, 2017).

To learn how to request assistance, see the Request Assistance page. For the most up-to-date list of cons to which assistance is available, see the Upcoming Cons page.

Thanks, and please spread the word!
