FCLR meetups are encouraged at conventions and events whenever possible! These are informal events that are organized by those attending and are a great way to put names to faces and meet fellow convention organizers.
Furry Convention Leadership Roundtable events have been held at least once each year since 2010. From 2010 through 2013, the events were held in Lincolnshire, IL; in FCLR 2014 was in Las Vegas, NV, FCLR 2016 was in Rosemont, IL, and FCLR 2017 was in Orlando, FL. These events are traditionally structured as a large meeting where we cover several major topics at length. Topics are solicited from FCLR members prior to the event, and the schedule is then organized by Duncan and Path. This year we’ll try to integrate breakout sessions, though the actual structure is still undecided. The in-person FCLR event is not a furry convention by conventional standards, but it is a fantastic opportunity to share, interact, and network in real time. There is an emphasis on socializing, however, and you shouldn’t be afraid to suit up or make some new friends!
For the in-person event, each convention may send up to 4 representatives. These reps need not be the three current members of FCLR. We also try to have teleconferencing available. We understand that not everyone will be able to travel, and we’d like to help cons network as much as possible.
