Aims and objectives
Members of the Guild of Master Craftsmen are required to maintain our Aims & Objectives, or membership will be revoked. These are:
To bring together all artisans engaged in a craft, art, trade, profession or vocation, in order to safeguard the interests of both craftsmen and the public.
To ensure that the minimum qualifications for membership preserve the high standards of The Guild by excluding unskilled tradesmen.
To publicise these high standards through national and local media, thus increasing public awareness of the ideals and aims of The Guild and its members.
To promote to the public the trading assets of its members, their honour, integrity, professional expertise, high standards of workmanship and the value for money which they offer.
To provide clear identification and recognition for members, in order to enable the public to distinguish them from unskilled tradesmen who try to pass themselves off as master craftsmen, and so to attract and direct work to members of The Guild.
To assist all members and to protect them against the damaging and devaluing activities of the unskilled, against bureaucratic discrimination, against penal taxation and adverse legislation. Equally, to protect the public by instilling in our members a greater sense of responsibility, alerting them to the national importance of the services they render, monitoring these standards to ensure that The Guild’s high standards are being maintained, and by encouraging members to always strive for excellence.
To encourage an interchange of views amongst members, to unite these views and to bring them to the attention of the Government and local authorities in order to safeguard the livelihood and welfare of members and their dependants.
To constitute a pressure group to seek the support of one or more Members of Parliament to make sure that someone speaks out for the interests of Guild members where it matters most.
To promote continual research within the craft, trade, art, profession or vocation in which members are engaged, thus benefitting both members and the public.
To foster learning amongst apprentices and students in order to perpetuate the survival, evolution and success of their particular craft.
To promote sponsorship of The Guild by persons, firms and organisations, whether by financial support, by endorsement of the activities of The Guild, or by patronage.
