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
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.
