Join Up

Want to attend LexiCon? Become a member now! If you attended Au Contraire 2013 or Conclave 2, or have joined Au Contraire 2016, you'll already have a cons.nz account (formerly an aucontraire.org.nz account) which you can log in with.

Standard full memberships are just $70, but concession (for anyone who can't afford the full rate) and solidarity (if you can afford to pay extra, it will help us put on a better convention) rates are also available, as well as single day and supporting memberships. It's very helpful for us if you can join as early as possible; memberships can be edited later if necessary.
