WSFS Constitution — continued
ARTICLE III — Future Convention Site Selection
The Society shall choose the location and Committee of the Convention to be held two (2) years from the date of the
current Convention at the Business Meeting of the current Convention. Bids from prospective Committees shall be
allowed on the ballot by the current Convention Committee only upon presentation of adequate evidence of an
agreement with the proposed sites' facilities, such as a conditional contract or a letter of agreement. Voting shall be by
mail or by ballot cast at the current Convention; with run-off ballot as described in Article II, Section 16; shall be
limited to Society members who have paid at least five dollars ($5.00) towards membership in the Convention whose
site is being selected. The current Convention Committee shall administer the mail balloting, collect the advance
membership fees, and turn over those funds to the winning Committee before the end of the current Convention.
Each World Science Fiction Convention Committee shall provide a reasonable opportunity for bona fide bidding
Committees for the Convention to be selected one year hence to make presentations.
To ensure equitable distribution of sites, North America is divided into three (3) regions as follows:
Western: Baja California, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Saskatchewan, and all states and provinces
Central: Central America, Mexico (except as above), and all states and provinces between Western and Eastern regions.
Eastern: Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Quebec,
and all states and provinces eastward.
Convention sites shall rotate in the order Western, Central, Eastern region. Bids from sites located out of rotation may
be considered only if the rule of rotation is set aside by a three-quarters majority of those voting for site selection at
the current Convention. In the event of such setting aside, the same motion shall establish where the rotation is to
A Convention site outside of North America may be selected by a majority vote at any Convention. In the event of
such outside Convention being selected, there shall be an interim Continental Convention in the region whose turn it
would have normally been, to be held in the same year as the overseas World Science Fiction Convention, with
rotation skipping that region the following year. To skip a region without giving it an interim Continental Convention
shall require a three-quarters majority vote. Selection of the site of such Continental Convention may be by vote of
the Business Meeting or by such other method as the competing bidders might agree upon.
With $ites being selected two (2) years in advance, there are therefore at least two Convention Committees in
existence at any given time. If one should become unable to perform its duties, the surviving Convention Committee
shall determine what it is to do, by mail poll of the Society if there is time for one, or by decision of the Committee if
there is not time.
