Furry con-runners gather at leadership roundtable
The first Furry Convention Leadership Roundtable was held this weekend in Lincolnshire, Illinois. According to Duncan da Husky, all U.S. and Canadian furry conventions with over 100 attendees were invited to send up to three representatives of their choice.
Discussions covered feedback surveys, hotel negotiations, working with the media, membership suspensions, A/V setups, technology, budgeting and fiscal management, age-related issues, marketing/branding and convention horror stories.
Those present included:
- Duncan da Husky and Takaza (lead organizers) of Midwest FurFest
- Uncle Kage and Giza of Anthrocon
- Gir Tygrin and Nik Vulper of Furry Connection North
- Members of IndyFurCon, Rainfurrest and the Dorsai Irregulars
Conspicuous by their absence were representatives from Further Confusion, Furry Weekend Atlanta or FurFright, the 2nd, 4th and 5th largest furry conventions — though these are all more than twelve hour's drive from Lincolnshire. Future Roundtables may occur in different locations.
