Committee and Staff List

The Glasgow 2024 Worldcon Bid is overseen by the Glasgow 2024 Board, and operates under an overall Bid Charter. The Board provides governance and oversight of the Bid Committee. We have also established an independent Code of Conduct team which operates in parallel to the Bid Committee to oversee our Code of Conduct.

Our Bid Committee is led by the Bid Chair, Esther MacCallum-Stewart. A full list of our Committee and Staff can be found below.

We are continuing to recruit staff to work on the Bid at various levels – either in ongoing roles or to take on specific, time-limited projects. We will be adding a Volunteer Form to the website in due course; in the meantime, if you would like to join the team, you can reach us via our Contact Form or by emailing us at

Governance and Oversight

Glasgow 2024 Board: James Bacon, Steve Cooper, Christine Davidson, Michael Davidson, Vincent Docherty, Alice Lawson, Esther MacCallum-Stewart, Mark Meenan

Advisor: Paul Anthony Shortt

Bid Committee: Esther MacCallum-Stewart (Chair), Bobbi Armbruster, James Bacon, Clare Boothby, Matt Calvert, Steve Cooper, Vincent Docherty, John Dodd, Phil Dyson, Sara Felix, Nigel Furlong, Meg MacDonald, Mark Meenan, Terry Neill, Brian Nisbet, Marguerite Smith, Ian Stockdale, Bella Storey-Cosgrave, Paul Taylor, Nicholas Whyte, Shana Worthen, Ben Yalow

The Code of Conduct team is integral but parallel to the Bid Committee, to maintain impartiality as much as possible. This separation ensures it is clear that all team members – at all levels of seniority – are subject to the CoC and to the authority of the CoC team.
