Iowa Furry Association in planning for new Iowa Furry Convention

Their website opens with this:

March 24th, 2011 the question was asked, “Why don’t we have a Fur Con in Iowa?”  This site is the answer to that question. It’s success or failure and the journey to the end. Join our team and help us make that answer “Because we just didn’t try before.”

The Iowa Furry Association is in the planning stages for a yet unnamed convention. They are researching names, logos and starting to form a board of directors.

Currently named possible board members are: Cute Kitsune, J Husky and Nbowa. Striker is currently acting as organizer but has declined consideration as Chairman for the time being.

They are also researching dates as not to conflict with other conventions. Presently, they are targeting a 2013 start date.

Part of the conversation currently going on is finding a “marketable” name using acronyms.

Their listed goals are as follows:

Form a Board

  • Cute Kitsune (Mina Kitsune)
  • J Husky (****)

Elect a Chair
Chose an Official Convention Name

  • Pick By date set 15APR2011 Midnight

Chose a Logo

  • Pick By date set 21MAY2011 Midnight

Chose a Mascot
Chose between LLC, S-Corp, C-Corp, or 501(c)
Set up Articles of Incorporation
Select a Charity
Settle on the Date of the Convention

  • Expected 1st Weekend in June 2013 (Not Final)

You can find them on the web here: Iowa Furry Convention

Their Facebook page is here: IA-Furcon at Facebook

At present they do not list a twitter account to follow.

As we get new information, we’ll report it.
