Who's Who

This page tells you who is who in the ConJosé organization. Please do not contact staff members directly through their personal email. Always use the official ConJosé email addresses given on this page. This will help us process con business more efficiently, and it will mean that messages will not go astray if we reassign responsibilities. This listing is as accurate as we can make it as of April 15, 2002.

Please note that just because we have names against jobs here it does not mean that we don't need anyone else. This list of just the tip of the iceberg as far as staffing a Worldcon goes. If you would like a job in any of these areas, please get in touch. Also, if you are looking for vacant staff positions, see our volunteers page.
