The 2016 Lunacon chair position, vacant since Mark Richards resigned at the end of December, has been filled by a three-member Executive Committee of former Lunacon chairs: Mark L. Blackman, Stuart C. Hellinger and John William Upton.
The New York Science Fiction Society (Lunarians) board of directors’ announcement explained, “This way, the remaining management work will not be a burden on any one individual and we will be able to rely on their knowledge and experience.”
The directors also announced the deadline for convention pre-registration from February 22 to February 29.
The convention is scheduled to take place March 18-20 at the Hilton Westchester in Rye Brook, New York.
The Lunarians skipped the 2015 edition of the con in order to reorganize and address financial issues.
