Convention Management and Control

Convention-Running Resources: A Smorgasbord

Fans have been holding their own conventions, on an amateur basis, since at least the 1940s. These events have grown in size, complexity, and diversity, especially since the early 1970s, and some fans have seen the need to set on paper some notes about the convention-runners' art, particularly as science fiction conventions are rather different than mundane conventions.

The Legal Rules

The Legal Rules was produced by Jerry William Lapidus both as a service to fandom in general and as a Cult publication. Each issue contains annotated minutes of a Convention's Business Meeting and the Rules of the World Science Fiction Society as appended and altered by that meeting. The issues are available in both HTML and PDF format.
