not accepted at that time the reasons for non-acceptance may be given to the applicant at the discretion of the Founding Members.

New applicants will be informed of their acceptance or otherwise as soon as possible.

have the option to continue paying monthly or annually. Applicants can choose pay annually in advance by cheque, postal order,
cash, bank transfer, or by PayPal. Annual payments receive a £15 discount for paying in advance which brings the membership
fee to £75. Members can chose to pay annually at any time during the monthly payment plan, if they wish to change.
Once an applicant is accepted into The Guild, a monthly payment plan is set up, unless paying annually.
