Were the bylaws, just changed or something because under faqs. " No. The only people who have a direct say in how Otakorp conducts its affairs, or how it runs the convention, are the voting members. Neither are there any industry reps on our board of directors, and it would be difficult for industry reps to satisfy the requirements to be a voting member in the first place. We do work closely with the industry and maintain good relations with them, but they don't pull the strings or pay the bills." https://www.otakon.com/help/faq/ Maybe I am wrong in this instant, but I was curios.
