Generic e-mail addresses of Guild officers

The Guild provides all officers with generic addresses. These are the best contact email addresss to include in any documents, posters or publications as they remain valid despite any changes to the officers. For example is the Guild secretary's e-mail address.

Guild stewards

Stewards are allocated to branches and their generic e-mail address reflects this, so for example: would go to the steward for the branch with address prefix ‘xyz’. (See the list of branch prefixes.)

Since each steward is normally allocated to three branches, there are three steward addresses that will reach him or her.

CC representatives

As well as the collective address, which goes to all representatives, each representative has an individual address, with a prefix incorporating the person's initials. So for example: will go to John Harrison.
