Unlike the conventions held by many other organizations, the purpose of the convention is not a fund-raiser. We do our very best to "just break even" on the convention; keeping costs low and providing extras once the core convention costs are covered. Our goal is your participation. That being said, the cost to attend the convention is $40. With discounts for those who have contributed to the party already. The $40 also includes your annual dues to the party. If you've already paid your dues, then it's only $10. If you are a monthly contributor, or would like to become a monthly contributor, then it's free.
