Let me put it yet another way. The CGW is hoping to enhance our reputation in the costuming community as on organization whose main interest is education in the field of costuming so that any member may consider membership in the CGW as a reconized asset in their efforts to perhaps attain a more professional standing.

While I know we have many professional costumers among our membership the CGW was created to embrace ALL skill levels and share our knowledge with each other. I believe any attempt to become exclusively one type of membership or another would be a disservice to the group as a whole. There are several organizations in existance for professionals, we need to be welcoming to all costumers, no matter where they are on their journey. Remember Costume College's thought process - everyone has something to learn and everyone has something to teach.
