OSFCI What's New (last updated February 6, 2016)

Who We Are

Oregon Science Fiction Conventions, Inc. (OSFCI) is a group of fans in Portland, Oregon that sponsors science fiction conventions and related events. OSFCI and all OSFCI events are entirely volunteer-run, and any surpluses are donated to recognized non-profit organizations. OSFCI itself is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit corporation.

Membership in OSFCI is open to anyone who has worked at the committee level for at least two OSFCI events in the last four years. If you have worked on OSFCI events and would like to see how many "credits" we have for you on our books, here is the current list.

The OSFCI Board of Directors currently consists of Beverly Block, Aaron Curtis, Fargo Holiday, Rick Lindsley Brigid Nelson, D. Stephen Raymond, Lea Rush, Debra Stansbury, Marc Wells, and Patty Wells.
