Kevin Standlee sent the link to a playlist of videos of today’s Westercon Business Meeting in Denver, along with an abbreviated report of the results:
- SeaTac, Washington won their uncontested Westercon 73 bid (2020).
- Proposal to expand Westercon’s coverage to all of North America was postponed indefinitely (killed without a direct vote).
- Proposal to require that bids provide at least one person at the site selection voting table passed and will be up for ratification in Utah.
- The other two proposals on the agenda failed: One would have more precisely defined the use of members’ membership numbers, and the other attempted to precisely define what was meant by the words “first full day” of Westercon as used in the Bylaws.
“The meeting managed to get all of this done in just under 50 minutes,” writes Kevin, “which meant that they did not have to go to an ‘overflow’ session in the afternoon, much to everyone’s relief.”
