The Guild is managed by a Council of 11, who are apppinted directors of the Guild by Members at the Annual General Meeting in March to represent their interests, deal with routine management matters and organise events of interest and value. The full Council typically meets three times a year at The Farmers Club in addition to holding online meetings and attending the AGM.

The Articles of Association, which sets out the rules by which the Guild is managed, are available to download here.

Under the watchful independent eye of the President, the Guild Council's senior officers are the Chairman and Deputy Chairman, who each serve a two-year term, and the Honorary Treasurer, who is elected each year and paid an annual honorarium determined by the Council.

The General Secretary was also an Honorary position until 2010 when it became an an appointment with an annual fee. The same applies to the Website/eAlerts Editor.

Each Council member serves a term of no more than three years before they must either stand down or seek re-elected at an Annual General Meeting. Under a new rule introduced in 2011, they may serve for another two years before compulsorily standing down for 12 months, after which they can seek re-election if they wish.

The Council can bestow Honorary Membership on anyone who is not a Guild member but has been of special service to the Guild, such as President. A Fellowship (FGAJ) honours members who have given the organisation outstanding support and service. The five longest-serving Fellows of the Guild are appointed Senior Fellows; they receive all Council Minutes and may attend Council meetings.
