Regional Reps!

After 6 years of planning and organising we are very pleased to announce that all 10 Guild Regions now have their own Representative!

The Regional Mapping files and the allocation of Reps following the GPC meeting of 21st July 2018 are now listed on the WIP. The Reps, once they get the hang of their new email system, will be in touch with Guild Secretaries in their regions to introduce themselves.

Look our for their emails!
