Ju Whitehead is a princess of Western Australian fandom, and a veteran of four convention committees: secretary of Swancon 2006, vice-chair of Swancon 2009, and convenor of two Fandmedias. Ju was a Western Australian Science Fiction Foundation board member for 2006 and is continuing on the board for 2007. She organises, arranges, manages, giggles, hugs and grins her way through fannish endeavours, brightening up Western Australian Science Fiction Foundation board meetings and spreading business management theory through the convention-running community. All of Australian fandom will be a brighter place and better organised for the experience of meeting Ju.
