Hi every one,

If you've ever considered running for NAFF, now might be the time! This
year the Natcon is Conflux at the Rydges in Canberra on the 25-28th of

NAFF contributes the cost of your traveling arrangements, your hotel room,
and your convention pass. In return you need to be your fannish self and
meet people, make friends and have a good time. Other duties will include
writing a trip report, becoming an Administrator for the fund and
fundraising to ensure the fund's continued survival.

If you'd like to nominate, there's  $20 bond, and you need to find three
fans to nominate you. You will also need to send me a 100 word bio on
yourself, describing what you would bring to the convention, and some of
your fannish history.

For the forms, and more information, click the link below.



Voting will open on the 18th of Fenbruary and close on the Monday the 1st
of April, 2013, the last day of Swancon.

Please do re-post this email to make sure the info gets out far and wide.

Thank you all!
Cheshire Noir: One Dark Kitten.
