Hi Angela, thank you for your comment. Unfortunately the only way for a member to remain as a member of her Guild is for TGHQ to receive the affiliation fee for that member through the AF2. If required please contact David Brotherton at TGHQ for a discussion.

We have elderly members who are no longer well enough to attend meetings. They would like to remain members, and we would like to keep them but it seems unfair to charge them the full subscription. Associate membership means they are no longer part of our guild and we would not benefit from their membership although we would still keep in touch with them.

Hi Joyce, Associate members can attend Federation events. They must pay an affiliation fee directly to the Federation as well as their affiliation payment directly to TGHQ. If you have any further queries please contact TGHQ on 0121 326 0400.
