We are a chapter of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen (PGC). To join the Chester County Craft Guild, you must also join the PGC. Both the PGC and the CCCG require annual dues. The membership process is handled through the PGC. This can be done at the PGC website, www.pacrafts.org, by following the ‘Become a member’ link at the top of the page. Members of the CCCG are required to attend two meetings per year and pay yearly dues in a timely fashion to remain members in good standing.
The guild offers the opportunity to apply for chapter juried status. In order to apply for this status, a member must have attended two meetings and be a member in good standing.
Jurying is done by application to the Standards Chairperson. The jurying process itself involves having your work judged by your peers to determine if it has attained the level of craftsmanship set forth by the Standards Committee. We encourage members to apply for chapter jurying as a way to maintain the high level of design and craftsmanship expected of our
members. Attaining juried status in the CCCG is a step toward juried status with the PGC. Our chapter is committed to helping members attain PGC juried status.
In order to maintain juried status within the chapter, you must attend two meetings per year.
