The Guild Leader Episode #30
The Guild Counsel
When you first started the guild the life of a Guild Leader was a lot simpler. You’re thinking yes that’s true, because we were smaller and it took a lot less to stay organized. Oh yeah those were the good ole days today your guild has grown up and you need a hand from time to time. Well, forming a guild counsel can help in many ways.
Why a Guild Counsel?
One of the best decisions I have ever made was starting a guild counsel in our guild because it makes things more of a democracy and people tend to like voicing their opinion on issues. It is a good way to get your members help in making to guild better for everyone.
The Guild Counsel can be the guild leader’s best friend when you need a hand with guild issues and its also great help with big decisions that need to be made.
Have a problem with guild members breaking or bending the rules of the guild, a guild counsels act as a disciplinary board also when needed. Troublemakers will feel the heat more when it comes from their peers rather than just one person.
The guild counsel also is a great way of gathering information on what events and if there are any new things people would like to try.
Who makes up the guild counsel?
Well at first I put some of the founding member on the guild counsel, later I just recommend using your best judgment on selecting members of the guild counsel. If you made it this far, you should have no problems knowing who should be on the counsel.
You should have people from officers to newer members on the guild counsel. You should let everyone have a chance once the member has established themselves in your guild.
As a guild leader you need to have a good 2nd in command and a great group of people on the a guild counsel which can really make your life a lot easier. As the guild leader I highly recommended this addition to your guild once you have enough members.
