Membership List Now Online

We have published our current Membership List on the site. We will update this list periodically. It is not dynamically updated when you buy or upgrade a membership. We will include the date of the latest update at the top of the list.

If you do not want your name listed in our membership list either on the website or in our publications, contact Westercon 74 Registration.

Progress Report 1 Published

Westercon 74 has published Progress Report 1 on our Publications page. We mailed paper copies to those members for whom we only have postal mailing addresses, and in a few days we will also send paper copies to those members who do have e-mail addresses but who requested paper copies as well.

PR 1 is a booklet designed to be printed on a double-sided sheet of 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper and folded twice. You are welcome to print and distribute our PR anywhere you think there might be people interested in Westercon 74 in Tonopah in 2021.

Westercon 74 Membership Rates to Increase on March 1, 2020

The cost of an attending membership in Westercon 74 will increase to $50 effective March 1, 2020. In addition, the $10 conversion-to-attending rate for those people who voted in the 2021 Westercon Site Selection in Utah expires at the end of February 2020. Membership rates for Young Adult and Child members remain unchanged.

Effective March 1, 2020, anyone who voted in 2021 Westercon Site Selection who has not already converted their membership to an attending membership may convert their membership to attending by paying the current attending membership rate minus $20.

If you voted in 2021 Site Selection and want to take advantage of the $10 conversion-to-attending rate, we ask that you send your payment by paper mail instead of registering online, due to online payment processing costs. Postmark date applies to memberships send by postal mail.

A full list of membership rates is on our Membership Types page. Online and paper mail registration information is available on our Membership/Registration page.
