Change Notice :
At the March Board of Director's meeting, a committee was formed to study the currently assessed rates of membership dues and other fees, and recommend changes that should be made in order to keep the Guild on a financially stable basis.  The committee has reported it's  findings, and it's recommendation has been unanimously approved.  As of August 12, 2022, annual membership dues and event registration fees have each been increased by $5.00.  In addition, the cost per person of the annual banquet has been increased by $7.50 to cover the actual cost of the meal.
