The Guild is an association founded in 1932 with the aims of promoting and maintaining
the highest standards of craftsmanship in Brickwork.
 
Membership consists of Journeymen and Master Members, who have served an
apprenticeship or an approved period of training and have obtained the relevant
qualification, are practising bricklayers, site foremen, and managers, clerks of work,
lecturers, tutors or instructors on approved courses. Trainee membership is encouraged
and there is an Associate class of membership for those in industry or education who are
sympathetic to the aims of the Guild.
 
As a national organisation the Guild has a President, a National Secretary, Treasurer and
Membership Secretary as its main officers. The Guild covers the whole of the United
Kingdom through its thirteen geographical regions, called Sections. Each section elects
from its members a Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer and is responsible for organising
the activities of the Section, work and site visits and other activities which promote the
aims of the Guild.
 
Each year the Guild, through its network of sections, organises regional brickwork
competitions at Senior, Junior and Schools levels with a National Final bringing together
the winners of the senior competitions from each of the regional events. The Guild is
pleased to acknowledge the sponsorship of brick, mortar and tool manufacturers and
valued contributions from local firms at regional events.
 Guild members serve on the advisory panels of all the technical education institutes and
supervise competition stands at local and national exhibitions.
