    Child Policy

    Miss Fisher Con is not recommended for children under 18. The event, including the discussion sessions, will be aimed at adult attendees and may contain mature subject matter.

    Should you choose to bring a child to the convention, that child must be registered and accompanied at all times by a registered adult attendee. All mature content that child is exposed to is strictly the sole responsibility and liability of their accompanying adult.

    The Adventuresses' Club of the Americas and its members are not responsible for attendees' costs involving travel, hotel accommodations, or any other non-convention ticket expenses that arise from any early departure or missed session due to the mature content.

ACotA Convention policies


Registration is open only to ACotA members until January 1, 2019. Only members can be registered at this time; if you'd like to register more than one person, each one must be a member. If you're traveling with nonmembers or folks who don't plan to attend the con, the Thursday night and Saturday night events will be great opportunities for family or friends who are not members to join in the fun. Watch this page for more information as it becomes available!

Refund/Cancellation Policy

Registration cancellations will be refunded at 100% until May 1, 2019; cancellations made between May 2 and June 2, 2019, will be refunded at 50%. No refunds will be issued after June 3, 2019.

Con Pricing

The ACotA is a nonprofit membership organization staffed by volunteers. The price of Miss Fisher Con is determined by the anticipated activities and experiences of the annual convention. Our goal is always to cover the cost of each year’s con, not to make a profit.

Venue Accessibility

The Westin San Jose provides the following accommodations:

  • Accessible guest rooms with a 32-inch wide door opening

  • Service animals allowed for persons with disabilities

For specific information, please call the general manager of the hotel.
