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 email@example.com.
The information below is correct as of 29th July 2020. We will be updating it on a regular basis.
