I am asking for con runner experience and stories of how you incorporated as a business to run your CON.

Did you go the For-profit route or the Non-profit route?

What were the reasons for your choice...and do you wish you'd gone the other route?

My committee is specifically looking at incorporating as a 501c7 but that means we have to become a membership club with chapter meetups, dues, newsletter, local events...etc. Then we can, as a club, organize and present the convention event we want to hold. I'm not sold on all the additional work of being a "club" first and THEN putting on a convention.

So maybe the answer is a for-profit llc. That gets into sticky points on volunteering your time towards the con vs. paying committee members or giving them a stakeholder share in profits.'s one step forward, two steps back at every turn!!!

I'd love to hear your story in this regard!
