NonCon 1 was held at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY on March 2-4, 2001. It was chaired by Kate Secor and had about 125 members.

Guests were Rosemary Edghill, Shaenon Garrity, Trina Robbins, Paul Levinson, Esther Friesner, Daniel Pinkwater (who decided not to attend), and Pete Abrams.

It was the outgrowth of a one-day academic conference run by the NSO the previous year involving basically only students and professors on campus, which the organizers kind of got suckered into expanding into three days (hence the "No Such Convention" — there was a lot of resistance to the idea that what they were doing was a convention!
