Guild Reorganizes to Regional Structure
Posted by Rebecca Blake on July 22, 2014
In the past year, the National Board voted to change the Guild organizational structure from a local chapter to a regional model. The change had been under review by the Board since 2007. The most recent proposal to restructure was passed in recognition of the onerous burden the chapter model put on local Guild members, who sought to take an active role in the organization, but were unable to fulfill the obligations of local chapter leadership as defined by the Guild constitution.
The new structure divides the Guild into five regions: Western, Midwestern, Southern, New England, and Eastern. The regions will be headed by regional representatives to the National board. A call for nominations to those positions was issued in early Summer and any contested election will take place this Fall. The regions are maintained by administrators, who can assist local groups in putting together events and meet-ups.
