We have several announcements to make as updates to our previous post:
1) In light of the intense community response to the Frenkel subcommittee’s decision, and the concom’s own concern about the “provisional ban,” the WisCon concom is itself currently appealing the subcommittee’s decision and will vote on the matter this week.
2) Debbie Notkin has resigned as Member Advocate, effective immediately.
3) The Bergmann subcommittee is assessing if they can continue given the valid concerns about Wiscon’s existing process.
4) Regarding refunds of registrations for WisCon 39, we received this question via Twitter: “Will there be a policy for refunds for those of us who are against the con’s current harassment actions?”
WisCon has traditionally had a fairly free refund policy for any registered members who are unable to attend. Anyone who has registered for WisCon 39 and would like a refund for any reason can request one by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
