Can you help?

The majority of the work necessary to run the Guild is undertaken by volunteers. There is an enormous amount to be done, from the running of the shows, production of the Gazette and manual, valuing and disposing of estates for the Executor and Trustee Service, as well as the necessary administration needed in an organisation of over 5,800 members.

The jobs listed here are just some of those for which we currently need volunteers. If you feel you have the necessary capability and are willing to give time to assist the Guild, we would be most grateful. Contact points for each job are given in the listings.

If you would like to help the Guild in any other capacity not listed here, please contact the Chairman

Video cameramen

Chris Simpson, who runs the Guild video library, is always on the lookout for new programmes to add to those already available.

If you have a layout and are prepared to create a video of it in action for the benefit of fellow Guild members, or if you have the necessary skills and would like to make programmes of other layouts, Chris would be very pleased to hear from you. Chris has all the necessary equipment and skill to turn raw footage into an entertaining programme and to transfer it to DVD.

If you could help, contact Video manager

Guild shows

The Guild organises three major shows annually, the spring show, the summer show and Guildex.

In addition it sponsers and supports some local shows. An essential part of these shows is the support by local volunteers.

If you would like to help at Guild shows in some way please contact the Events Manager, go to the Contacts page or your local club.

Con rep Area 8

We currently require a new representative for Area 8 (London postcodes E EC HA N NW RG SE SL SW TW UB WC W) If you feel you could help your fellow members by representing them at guild Council three times a year and at events around the area comprising postcodes then please get in touch with the Guild Secretary or John Hobden. Chair of Membership and general Purposes on 01366 377751. The work of a constituency representative is interesting and rewarding, involving meeting members in local groups, at exhibitions and at three Council meetings a year. A ConRep should normally be resident within the area but a member living conveniently close in an adjacent area and prepared to travel may also be suitable.
