KA PAI - GOOD THINGS
We set ourselves up as a not-for-profit, incorporated society with a diverse executive board, who’ve happily donated hundreds of hours because we collectively feel it is needed and our industry deserves to be supported.
 
We decided to set our Guild membership at an affordable $100 per year, with over $2000 worth of resources for our members.
