Here at JordanCon, we have strived to keep our attendance costs as reasonable as we can while still providing an amazing experience for our attendees. To that end, we have not raised our membership prices in ten years, and we’ve continued increasing our offerings to our attendees – more tracks, more panels, more member activities, more artists, more vendors, and (maybe most importantly) more food at our fabulous ConSuite!
Now, though, we have to face the financial realities of being a non-profit convention run solely by volunteers that has all of these great things we offer, and we have to raise our membership prices, just a little bit. While we hate having to face that financial reality, we’re hopeful that it will allow us to continue offering bigger and better things to our attendees in the coming years.
Our 2020 schedule of membership prices are as follows:
- $50: June 14th – September 2nd
- $55: September 3rd – December 31st
- $65: January 1st – March 20th (pre-registration closes)
- $75: at the door
You can purchase your memberships here, right now.
Dearest JordanCon Family,
You’ve done it again and exceeded expectations in the grandest way possible. As we close the books, we wanted to share some of your successes that led to a JordanCon record-shattering donation.
This year’s chosen charity, Hospice of Mercy, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, received a total amount of $17,522 in honor of our brother, Steve Godecke.
#JCon2019 By the Numbers
JordanCon 2019 saw new records for member attendance (890), Charity Auction funds raised ($9,021), charity proceeds from the JordanCon 2019 Anthology “You Want Stories?” ($4,054), and other charity events ($1,879). The Art Show also achieved a 3-year goal and new record for charitable funds (10 percent of all Art Show sales totaling $2,567).
As we wrap up our fiscal year and look back at JordanCon 2019, we want to thank all of our members, staff, and officers for their time and generosity that contributed to a record-breaking year for charity. Our family is strong and generous, and none of this would be possible with all of you.
Most of you know our fearless leaders, Jennifer and Jimmy Liang, but many of you probably haven’t had a chance to sit down and chat with either of them. (Mostly because they rarely get the opportunity to sit during the convention.) Because everyone should get the chance to harass at least one of them, and Jenn is awesome and willing to help us make it happen, we’ll be hosting a Twitter AMA with Jenn on Monday January 21! The AMA will last from 4:30 pm until 6:30 pm ET, so be ready with some questions for her!
Have you ever wondered where the incredible items in the annual JordanCon Charity Auction come from? Many of them come from people just like you who want to help support the Mayo Clinic! If you have anything you would be willing to donate for the 2019 auction, you can use this link to submit your donation online. We can’t wait to see what you add to the auction! (And we can’t wait to buy it all, either!)
