ConCave to Host DeepSouthCon

ConCave and Oasis both presented bids to host the 2018 DeepSouthCon during the DeepSouthCon business meeting at JordanCon this past weekend. Because Oasis was occurring simultaneously, the Oasis representative Skyped in for the presentation. ConCave won the right to host DeepSouthCon with a vote of 15-13.

The business meeting also discussed a change to the bylaws to make selection of a replacement con easier if a seated DSC has to cancel. Jennifer Liang also proposed the creation of a fan fund to bring fans to DeepSouthCon.
