    Panel reimbursement question

    You need to contact Matt Graves. I believe the panels2018@otakorp.org address is one they are still using.

    Panel reimbursement question

    So due to some project commitments at my real job, I've been a slowed down in getting to the reimbursement checks. Basically, if I'm in the lab for 12+ hours a day I don't have time to get through reviewing requests once I get home. However, all but 3 of the panelist reimbursement checks (these 3 are missing documentation) should be going into the mailbox by Monday.

    Panel reimbursement question

    Hello. Programming is currently verifying all the information they received. I expect to get it to review next week. Once the comptroller and I get a chance to go over it we will start sending out checks. --Matt

    No 25th Anniversary?

    It all comes down to what we want to celebrate. While this was the 25th Otakon, it would only be the 24th anniversary of Otakon.

    Anime swap meet?

    If we officially organized the swap meet - it would still be part of our event. It really wouldn't matter what building we were in.

    Anime swap meet?

    The biggest issue is figuring out what DC's tax laws say regarding the collection of sales tax from something like this. It is different from having a private garage or yard sale, because it takes place within the walls of our event. If by DC everyone selling something becomes a "vendor" then yeah, each person would have to register with DC and collect and pay. Not a fun mess to deal with.

    All: So to keep this thread informative and more on target to its original purpose, I've split off the discussion about the rally to another thread: white civil rights rally application approved for dc

    Has it been decided what (fan) panels will be included?

    I may as well join in. I'll be back again this year with my panel about Otakorp and Otakon: Otakorp and You: Demographics and Financials Based on last year's feedback, this year the discussion will focus on the changing demographics of Otakorp and Otakon as far back as we have data. Corporate financial status will be reported on. The panel will be capped by the always popular Q&A. Of course if there is some sort of demographic information you may want to see specifically feel free to drop me a message and ask. Again it's limited to the data we have, but there are interesting ways to look at it that I haven't considered.

    Otakon 2017: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

    It may be simply the case that they were interpreting the rules we gave them in a more strict fashion than we had intended. At least now we know that it was happening..
  11. Hey Matt, Can you add my daughter's account to the staff web boards.  Her ID is ekusterer.  She's in publications, name Emily Kusterer.  Thanks!

  12. Matt, where was that statement you made with the numbers for pre-reg?  I can not remember at all, and couldn't find it when I went to quote it.  At least, I think it was you and not Nick?


  13. Hey Matt,

    Did you (and the rest of the Board) see Jen's post on Facebook which was also supposedly sent to the BoD?  It sounds like she has something huge in the works for today and wants Otakon's support in it. I like Flury's post in that Facebook thread.
