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, as well as the necessary administration needed in an organisation of over 5,500 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 Guild Secretary

Forum Moderators

If you enjoy the opportunity to discuss news, views, and modelling, give a thought to the moderation effort behind the scenes that helps keep it on an even keel. Please consider joining our team, you will be given guidance, training, and get to know, and be known, by your fellow members. Many hands make light work so having volunteers join our team would be much appreciated.

If you are interested please contact me at forummanager@gaugeoguild.com

Thank you,

Geoffrey
Forum Manager, creator of 'Kew Green', celebrating room sized layouts with tighter curves!

Constituency Representatives

We currently require a new representative for:-

  • Area 2, (North West, postcodes BB BL CA FY LA M OL PR SK WN)
  • Area 4, (Merseyside, postcodes BT CH CW IM L LL ST SY TF WA)

If you feel you could help your fellow members by representing them at Representatives meetings and at events around the area then please get in touch with the Guild Secretary. The work of a constituency representative is interesting and rewarding, involving meeting members in local groups, at exhibitions and at Representatives meetings each year.

A Constituency Representative 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.

Guild Archivist Role

The main function of the Guild’s Archivist is to keep the records required either by law or of historical interest. Currently a central store is provided by the Guild for such documents and artefacts. Storage is not in a fixed location and can be located to the convenience of the incumbent. It requires the storage and location of documents in a secure environment so that if they are required they can be found easily.
Some documents are records of the Secretary and Treasurer and these are required to be kept for a period of 10 years after which they are reduced either for historical interest or discarded by shredding. Sorting of other items given to the Archivist may be required to assess their relevance of being archived.
Some storage is also provided for items like the unused awards for the modelling competitions due to lack of entries in any year. The work is not time consuming and visits to the storage facility is usually by the Secretary or Treasurer when access is required. The role requires a methodical person and help is always available through the Guild Secretary.

If you are interested in taking on this role on behalf of the Guild please contact the Secretary at Guild Secretary for further information.
