Discussion:
1

A general discussion of leadership styles (top/down/sideways/whatever...) followed by an examination of what happens when leadership fails.

More than a couple of recent Worldcons and large Regionals have had some sort of a reorganization at the top of the structure between winning the bid/convention and start of the convention. This has resulted in a new chair, the loss of a co-chair or replacements of board members. What leadership issues can cause a convention to remove or replace a chair or co-chair? How can the organization prepare for and recover from such a disruptive event?

Workshops and Panels listed as “Streaming” will be in our online panel room. While the video will be trained on the panelists, audio will cover everyone. By attending this workshop or panel you agree to consent to having your voice and possibly your likeness broadcast online.
