Basic Duties: The con chair is first among equals. He or she runs the concom meetings and tries to keep all the balls in the air simultaneously. Conflict-resolution and "kindly get off your ass" skills are extremely useful. Due to the position's awesome responsibilities, combined with its less-than-awesome powers, it is frequently a shared position. Ahead of the con, the chair's main job is making sure that all functions are being tended to, ideally by some other person. At the con, the chair is the decider of last resort.
For 2015: Joe Alfano and Brian Curley
