As many of you may know, Dianne Wallace resigned as President of the Guild, effective November 9, 2016. Dianne did an amazing job as President, helping us through a time of change that included a new Guild website, Guild Administrator, and Board. Dianne personally reached out to many of us, helping us with any problem we had, whether it was logging into the website, registering for an upcoming event, or contacting a Committee Chair. Dianne contributed so much of her time to ensure that you, whether you are a Guild Guide, Affiliate, or Friend, had access to all of your Guild membership benefits. Unfortunately, Dianne felt she no longer had the ability to devote the time necessary to the Guild.
We benefitted from Dianne’s leadership including some terrific educational events. Her impact will be with us for a long time. Dianne is currently working closely with me to ensure a smooth transition of the Presidency and I am grateful that Dianne has the utmost respect for the Guild and our members. As I work with Dianne through this transition, I encourage you to contact me with any concerns you might have about the Guild.
I look forward to working with you and our Board members to maintain and improve the highest standards of the quality and ethics for the Guild of Professional Tour Guides of Washington, DC.
The Board needs your participation in the Guild and I encourage each of you to reach out to our Chairs and Co-Chairs to let them hear from you about what you would like the Committees to do for you, our Guild members. The Board Officers and Committees are here to serve you, so you can be successful. Please contact us with your ideas for the Guild:
