What is SFSFC?

SFSFC standands for San Francisco Science Fiction Conventions, the corporation that is putting on ConJosé.

Should I have heard of them? - Not necessarily. SFSFC tries to stay in the background when running conventions.

Should I have heard of any conventions that they have helped run? - Quite possibly. How about ConFrancisco, the 1993 Worldcon?

Ah, right, anything else? - World Fantasy Con in Monterey in 1999. Conolulu, the 2000 Westercon. The 1999 SMOFcon (a convention about running SF conventions). Several editions of ConStruction (a Bay Area convention-running workshop).

So they make money out of putting on conventions? - Not exactly; SFSFC is a registered non-profit organization.

What do you mean, "not exactly"? - Well, it is impossible to run a convention that exactly breaks even. Normally there is a small surplus, a few percent of turnover.

And what happens to the surplus? - SFSFC ploughs the money back into other conventions, or uses it to sponsor activities that promote science fiction.
