UPDATE ON PRO BADGES
Full details on their website

For Comic-Con 2022, we had previously stated that only those who registered a professional badge for Comic-Con 2020, and had their badge roll over to 2022, would be able to attend as professionals.  However, due to the loosening of COVID-19 safety restrictions and increased capacity, we are pleased to announce that we will be able to accommodate additional professionals at Comic-Con 2022! This will be open to all “Not Due” professionals who have not already registered.  Badge pricing and guest allotments will remain the same as your pricing and allotment for Comic-Con 2020 badges.  More details on when and how to register these badges will be provided in the months between WonderCon and Comic-Con 2022.  Please watch your email, as well as this website, for more information as it becomes available.  Note that this applies only to professional badges, and we do not anticipate any additional attendee badge sales for Comic-Con 2022.


Thank goodness! My faith in SDCC is restored!

I guess i just need some clarity on mine. I reverified in 2018 for 2019 which means 2019 was my first of my 3 years. So in 2021, i would have had to reverify for 2022. But if they added 1 year on, wouldn't that mean I'd now be due in 2023???

Or am i counting wrong here?

I think you're counting right. But check your member page after Wonder Con to see if it updates. It should be +1 from whatever it says today.

UPDATE ON PRO BADGES
Full details on their website
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
ALL “Not Due” professionals, including those who last verified in 2019, will have one additional year added to their verification, beyond the one year that we initially granted in 2020 due to our first canceled slate of shows.  This update will not be viewable in our database until after WonderCon 2022, but it does allow those affected to attend WonderCon if they wish – see the next point for details!
 
For WonderCon 2022, this means that many of you who had previously been listed as “Due” and were ineligible to register for our upcoming show may now join us as we come together in Anaheim, CA, from April 1-3.  If you are affected by this, you will receive a separate email with instructions on registering your WonderCon 2022 badge and guest badges.

Oh yay!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful news! I'm going to have a fantastic July :)

This is awesome news, and I'm glad my faith in CCI was confirmed!  Also, FWIW, I appreciate them sending this out on the 'eve' (relatively speaking) of WonderCon instead of having Pros be frustrated and/or in the dark another week.  I can totally see CCI walking on eggshells, already stressing a month or two ago about announcing SDCC as a go with limitations still in place for large events; now that those mandates are lifted they can relax and I'm sure I speak for many when I say I appreciate them taking care of Pros like this

I have a feeling they were feeling the pressure as more and more people discovered their own situation and advising them about it. Then they saw people posting about going to the Sunday Talk Back at WC and ultimately decided that they needed to get out in front of it and make it right. While I appreciate them saying the Covid restrictions lifting informed their decision, it really felt like, if that were the case, they would have said that up front: i.e. "We are monitoring the Covid policy of the city of San Diego and will work to resolve the Professional Badge registration as soon as things become more clear and restrictions are eased."

I am very sympathetic that CCI is a small organization and were decked by Covid just like the rest of us and am extremely happy they have reversed their stance on this whole thing.

I was going to go to wondercon for that sole panel on Sunday. Now, I am not going to Wondercon.

Ha! I keep saying that time is winding down on people and organizations using COVID as a copout. You can't have it both ways.

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login I'm in literally the same exact boat you are. We wanted to wait to hear more news about Covid before committing to the con...then the registration closed before we could secure passes. I'm glad they've changed their stance, but just wanted to let you know you aren't alone!

I'm still confused. I had a pro badge in 2020 and rolled over to 2021, which was also canceled.
I just checked my member ID account and my pro registration expires 8/1/2022.
Does this mean I still have a pro badge for this year's show?

Resolved. I e-mailed CCI and they said my 2020 badge will roll over to 2022. It will be soon be populated on the Member
ID page.

Excellent news! I was going to say I felt like it should roll over since the 2021 SE for Pros wouldn't have counted against the 2020 situation. Also I believe once the website refresh happens, your status will change so that you get another year of eligibility through the 2023 convention, but I'm not 100% sure about that.

But congrats on the good and stress relieving news!

Thanks, Scott. After 2 years of no SDCC, I really would like to attend this year!
