Hey all.

Recieved a letter through the post Friday from the above, inviting me to join.

Looks really impressive and seems like it holds a bit of weight. Is anyone else a member or have any views on them?? is it worth it? did it get you anymore work? etc.

Any views welcome.:)

Just another hand over your money well give you a sticker for your van & tell anybody who calls that you are great at what you do..........................Thats you hand over hundreds of pounds a year.

Loads of one man & small builders now displaying the GMC logos in my area.
And yes I've had the mail shot also..........file'd it in the bin same as every other month when it drops through the door.

Heres another one if you are into joining such things, again a few local sparks are members of this lot.

A Guild of Master Craftsmen sounds like a bit of bluff to me, after all, surely it's a Guild or trade specific professional body that defines and polices their tradesmen, Master Craftsmen or whatever they choose to call them. That way they can claim some expertise and experience within their Guilds specialty and provide a meaningful accreditation. How does a Jack of All Trades Guild do that?
