Registering for a member account
When you purchase a membership you will also register for a member account. This gives you access to our member resources and allows you to make changes to your membership information.
Each individual member needs an account. This requires a separate contact email address for each account.
You may use what is known as subaddressing (name+tag@domain). A discussion of this approach can be found here.
Voters: If you voted in the Site Selection for the 2023 NASFiC at Chicon 8 you are automatically a supporting member.

You can upgrade to an attending membership by paying the difference between the attending rate at the time you upgrade minus the amount you paid for a supporting membership. All who voted in Site Selection for the 2023 NASFiC at Chicon 8 are supporting members of Pemmi-Con.
