New members are normally elected at a meeting of the District which they will join. A membership application form is available to download here. Complete the form and send it to the Guild Secretary, who will forward it to your District Secretary, or else send it directly to your District Secretary (details of the Districts are here). Your District Secretary will contact you with details of local events and meetings so you can attend one of them and be elected.
