Who runs the Guild?


The Guild is run by the members for the members – there are no paid officials. The affairs of the Guild are managed by the Trustees of the Registered Charity, who form the Committee.

The Guild Committee, Executive, and Subcommittees are all staffed by volunteers, and all of the various postholders and the Regional Representatives, are volunteers.

The affairs of the Guild are managed by a Committee, and its members are also the Trustees of the Registered Charity. The Committee comprises no more than fifteen Guild members, of whom four are designated Officers: namely the Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary, and Treasurer.

An election is held for Committee places if there are more than fifteen nominations, and the results announced at the Guild’s Annual General Meeting.

Supporting the committee are subcommittees (including the executive); a number of postholders; and regional representatives.
