Swancon 2016 Convention Organising Committee Appointed

The WA Science Fiction Foundation (WASFF) Convention Steering Committee (CSC) is pleased to announce that an organising committee for Swancon 41 (to be held in 2016) has been appointed.

Following a community canvass and call for submissions, the CSC evaluated responses and made recommendations to the WASFF Board which then met to review the responses and appoint a bid.

The Swancon 2016 organising committee is convened by Isobel White, with Evan Beasley as Secretary, Jack Bridges as Treasurer, Sarah Parker as Marketing Coordinator, and Lyndon "Frames" White as Programme Coordinator in addition to a number of other committee members in varying positions.

The theme for Swancon 2016 will be Modern Speculative Fiction and Contemporary Fantasy, and will likely be held over Easter (March 24th - 28th) 2016.

The WASFF Board and CSC congratulate Isobel on her committee's proposal, and look forward to working with her and her committee over the coming years.
