About SITACon Convention Committee: The SITACon
Convention Committee started out as an idea by SITAC (SUNY IT Anime Club) and
started with members exclusively from the club. After the idea became
more of a reality the Committee opened to persons outside of the Anime
Club in the interest of bringing a convention to the area.
