Eternal Memberships
Dragon*Con Eternal Memberships guarantee membership for all Dragon*Con conventions in the future, including the upcoming Dragon*Con. Other features of Eternal Memberships include a special ribbon, pin, and events with the guests, plus occasional freebies and other perks when we can arrange them. There are only a few of these memberships left.
Fan Club Discounts
We invite all fan clubs to represent themselves at Dragon*Con. We provide complimentary fan tables, good for the entire weekend (while they last), and also provide programming time to interested fan clubs.
Requests will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis, and space is limited, so contact us as early as possible.

We offer a $5 group discount off the prevailing rate per membership for ten or more memberships purchased in advance via one check or money order. (These are available through our office by mail only.) Just send us registration forms for each person in your group or organization so we can make your laminated badges; confirmations and progress reports will be sent to each person individually. You must include names and addresses for all members in your group.

On-Site (at-the-door) Registration
Registration for Dragon*Con 2001 will likely again be located in the Hyatt's International Ballroom. Our registration hours of operation will be announced later. For On-Site Registration and TicketMaster badge pick-up, Dragon*Con utilizes a professional registration system provided by Interactive Software Systems, running on an IBM AS/400 mini-computer system with numerous data entry stations and laser printers to help keep lines as short as possible.
Additional booths are set up for Guests, Staff, Media, Performers, Dealers/Exhibitors, and Handicapped Access. A special booth called the Solutions Desk is available for those who have special registration needs (like membership conversions, transfers, etc.) and also serves as a source for information and the command center for registration in general.


Transfer Policy
If you can't attend Dragon*Con after you've preregistered you may transfer your membership to another person. This notice of transfer must be in writing and have the signatures of both the original member and the new member. We'd prefer to receive these in advance, but we know that sometimes things crop up on short notice. Therefore, we will accept membership transfers at-the-door; please see our "Solutions" Desk in the registration area. Please note that memberships can no longer be transferred forward to the following year.

Volunteer Staff
If you would like to volunteer for staff at Dragon*Con -- and we are always on the lookout for qualified people in a variety of areas -- you can attend one of our staff meetings or A href="../feedback.html">contact us directly.
