The Guild is expanding its support of companies and other institutions with a broadened focus that includes:
A wide array of professional training opportunities for all members developed with an eye to accessibility and affordability.
A regular on-going publicity campaign about Guild events and that includes both traditional and social media, and active outreach to architects, engineers, educators, general contractors, and building owners - the end-users who make buying decisions.
We provide companies and other institutions with a platform for in-person and distance networking opportunities with peers and industry leaders. We also facilitate collaborative research programs and through our quarterly journal provide a venue for disseminating outcomes.
Our services help the public and clients you serve understand the benefit of timber-framed strucures. We help others recognize the quality and integrity of such buildings; and to the craft, technology, and business of timber frame construction.
When you enroll as an Institutional Member, you are affiliating with the Guild’s 30-year history and exciting present. Not only does your membership support the Guild’s expanding mission, but it yields credibility, opportunity, and connection for your business.
Colleges or Universities, Schools for Architecture or Engineering, and academic research programs should register as enterprises in the $1.5M+ category. Small non-profits should register based on the size of their budget.
"The Guild Branding workshop was brilliant, and what the TFG should be doing. It will change how our company operates for the rest of my life. It's a big deal, and was one of the best things I have ever gotten from my Guild involvement in the last 20 years. Way to go in creating and supporting that, let's bring on more..." - Bo Foard, TFG Company Member
