Should you be at Faffcon?

By now I hope you’ve heard about Faffcon, the Unconference for working voiceover professionals taking place September 11 and 12, 2010 in Portland, Oregon. Maybe you’ve thought about going, but wonder if you really qualify because “working voiceover professional” seems like a bit of a stretch? If so, here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  1. Can you travel the weekend of September 11 and 12, 2010? In other words, are you available?
  2. Can you afford to spend around $500 (add to that the cost of your travel) on your voiceover business right now? (Registration is $175, hotel will be at least $300 and you’ll need to eat dinner a couple of times.)
  3. Are you actively promoting your voiceover business?
  4. Do you have a demo?
  5. Have you been paid to do voiceover work?

If the answer to all of the questions above are “yes” then you should be at Faffcon. You qualify and you certainly have something to contribute to the discussion. So, register today because the longer you delay the more expensive your travel will be, especially if you have to fly to get there.

Get FaffCon Flair!


  1. Hi Bob!

    Notes for people who think those numbers are scary:
    Notes for the budget-minded:

    The hotel is serving breakfast, FaffCon is serving lunch and an afternoon snack. Even if you budgeted a wild-and-crazy $25 for dinner Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, if you share a hotel room, your costs would be under $400 for everything except airfare. And that magazine at the airport.
