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.
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
