The Guild Year Book is compiled and published every June and because it contains a detailed listing of contact details for Members and Friends, together with their professional interests and services offered, is widely regarded as a major membership benefit.
The Year Book contains a complete listing of business contact details for Members and Friends of the Guild, and describes their business interests and areas of expertise. There are also contact details for the editors of key agricultural and horticultural publications.
The publication also provides a record of Guild events and awards, and contact information for elected representatives on the Guild management council, the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) and the European Network of Agricultural Journalists (ENAJ).
The Year Book is sent free to Members and Friends. Additional copies may be available to them for a small charge.
Guild members can register changes to their entries for the next edition by emailing Guild secretary Nikki Robertson. Please include your name in the email subject box for easy reference.
A number of farming and rural organisations highlight their media contacts by placing an advertisement in the Year Book. It puts these organisations in pole position when members come to look for useful sources of information, comment and opinion.
Contact the Guild secretary (see above) for details of rates and copy requirements.
Note: The Year Book was published for 30 years by Wendy and Peter Ryder on behalf of the Guild. Their final edition was in 2013. The service they provided made a considerable contribution to the Guild.
