When you join Westercon 74, you are purchasing a membership, not a ticket, per the Westercon Bylaws. Although some online vending systems for technical reasons use the term “ticket,” Westercon does not sell “tickets” and therefore any reference to “ticket” in an online vending system should be understood to mean “membership” under the Westercon Bylaws. The following classes of membership are available to participate as part of Westercon 74.
Attending members receive all the rights of supporting members (see below), plus the right to attend the convention.
Through February 29, 2020: $40
March 1 – June 30, 2021: $50
July 1 – December 31, 2021: $60
January 1 – June 30, 2022: $70 (Paper mail advance registration ends June 15, 2021)
Young Adult (age 13-19 as of July 1, 2022, $30) and Child (age 7-12 as of July 1, 2022, $20) members receive attending membership rights.
Kid-in-Tow (age under 7 as of July 1, 2022, Free) members must always be under the supervision of an adult and receive no membership rights.
Supporting members ($20) receive convention publications (electronically by default, or via postal mail upon request) and have the right to participate in 2023 Westercon site selection (subject to paying an additional voting fee) but cannot attend the convention. Anyone who voted in the 2021 Site Selection election held at Westercon 72 in Layton, Utah automatically became a supporting member of Westercon 74. Supporting members may always convert to Attending membership by paying the difference between what they paid for their Supporting membership (which may be the $20 voting fee paid to vote in the 2021 Site Selection election in Layton) and the current cost of an Attending membership.
