How is my registration fee used?

SWPACA is an independent non-profit organization; we are neither associated with nor supported by any institution or organization. All PCAs in the US (including Nationals) are independent of one another. Our executive team, area chairs, and awards judges are all volunteers and do not receive any compensation for their work. Your registration fee supports the year-round work of SWPACA in advocating for and supporting the study of popular culture, including hosting two annual conferences (one in-person and one online) and producing an open-source, peer-reviewed journal, Dialogue: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Popular Culture and Pedagogy.
