You can also volunteer for the convention at: https://www.spikecon.org/about-us/volunteer

      Memberships for four different possible conventions can be confusing, not to mention the reasoning behind each process. Let us help you by breaking down the options and supporting multiple ways to join the fun of Westercon 72, NASFiC 2019, 1632 Minicon, and Manticon 2019 (Spikecon). The conventions all have the same membership classes regardless of your reason to attend.

     Memberships are either Attending or Supporting. Attending means that you’re coming to Spikecon and want to experience it in person. Supporting means that, even though you won’t attend, you’ll be able to vote in Site Selection for Westercon 74, and NASFiC 2020, and receive copies of all publications.

     (We do not offer refunds for memberships. However, we will transfer memberships to another person. To transfer a membership, a letter from the transferring person (including address, email, and phone number) indicating the transferee may be brought to the convention or emailed (from the original purchased email address) to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will process it. The transferee must also provide a picture ID if at the door or list payment place/method in email.)

       Note on upgrading membership levels

Many members of Westercon 72 and members of NASFiC 2019 presupported a bid and/or voted to upgrade from a supporting to attending membership. Since we had two of our conventions go through this bid and vote process there are some members who need to upgrade in order to attend the event. If you need to upgrade you can send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
