Why join the American Glass Guild?
Our members originally created the American Glass Guild both to teach and to learn. A large part of what we’re about, and one of the original drivers that led to the formation of the AGG, is education. Many of our members are accomplished designers, fabricators, conservators, and historians. We believe that it is critically important to actively share this knowledge. We provide access to an accumulation of technique, best practice, and historical knowledge that is unattainable anywhere else. We welcome and share the ideas and discoveries of newcomers to the art of stained glass with as much encouragement as we do with the most well known artists and scholars in their fields.
The AGG is not an organization that focuses on marketing services for member studios. We only offer individual or family memberships. We do enjoy highlighting our members through various literature, exhibits and social media, but we are first and foremost an organization of individuals who share a common interest in stained and decorative glass. That is not to say that AGG membership doesn’t have business benefits to individuals or their studios: We actively explore and foster relationship-building with architectural organizations, government and private historical preservation groups, liturgical and academic organizations, building trades, manufacturers and vendors. All of this provides business opportunities through increased exposure of our membership to a widening scope of relationships. Our sponsors recognize the opportunity and importance of our mission to support excellence in stained glass: At each of our annual conferences our sponsors have conducted classes and presentations on the use of their products.
A unique feature of the AGG is that in a large part our members are not members because of any tangible business benefit they receive for their annual membership fee. Rather they are members because they love stained and decorative glass, and they want to share what they know. They see the potential for the AGG to become something great and the want to be a part of it.
When you join the American Glass Guild, you will:
-Support an organization with a consistently outstanding record of stained glass educational programs and funding
-Obtain access to all sections of the American Glass Guild Bulletin Board (www.americanglassguild.com).
-Have your name, studio link, and selected images listed in the Member Directory of our website, and in any printed directory that may be produced
-Receive a discounted conference enrollment fee
If you love stained and decorative glass and you want both to learn more about the art — and to give back to the stained glass community with your own knowledge — we would love to have you as a member!
