Transition to Guild Regional Structure Completed

Posted by Rebecca Blake on November 18, 2014

This year saw the Guild make a momentous decision to move from a chapter to a regional structure. The decision to do so was voted on by the entire National board, which overwhelmingly supported the transition. During the summer, Guild members were invited to run for regional representative positions, replacing the previous Chapter president model. After a contested election in the New England region, the new board was announced.

The Guild is now organized into five regions: Eastern (representative Colin Nichols), Midwestern (representative Diane Barton), New England (representative Todd LeMieux), Southern (representative Mark Bloechl), and Western (representative Sara L. Chapman). Guild social media has also been changed to reflect the regional structure, with individual accounts set up for Twitter and Facebook, and local subgroups set up underneath the National LinkedIn group. We encourage creators to follow the regional social media accounts for news on local activities and items of interest.
