Membership

A fan who attends an sf con buys a membership in that con and becomes a member. This terminology — in contradistinction to ticket — emphasizes that fans are expected to be active participants in the activities of a con and not merely passive consumers of entertainment.

In some cases, such as Worldcon and Windycon, convention membership also comes with membership and voting privileges in the sponsoring organization.

Membership may also refer to club membership.
