Our Branch

The Wales and West Branch has long been an active branch in the Guild. Over 2019 and 2020 we want to:

  • Ensure we deliver an engaging calendar for our members
  • Deliver an active programme for developing professionals
  • Establish a succession plan for our committee, increasing its diversity across all pipeline industries.

We welcome suggestions of topics you would like us to hold, so please get in touch about what you would like to see us delivering.
