Governance

The Guild of Carillonneurs in North America is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization according to the US Internal Revenue Code. Our recent tax filings are publicly available: Form 990 for 2019–2020 and 2020–2021; for older filings, visit ProPublica's Nonprofit Explorer and our GuideStar profile.

Founded in Ottawa, Canada, on September 3, 1936, we first incorporated in the US state of Minnesota in 1962 and changed the state of legal domicile to California in 1992. Our governance processes are determined by our founding documents and policies, including but not limited to:

Articles of incorporation and bylaws

The articles of incorporation and bylaws were last amended at the 2006 and 2022 congresses, respectively.

Statement of professionalism and inclusion

The Guild of Carillonneurs in North America is strongly committed to the basic human rights, dignity, and respect of all members. We affirm the dignity of all persons, including but not limited to, persons of any race, color, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.

We are a community that values diversity, embraces our individual differences, and recognizes that the creative contributions of all members broaden and strengthen the carillon art. We pledge to continue the work that will allow all of our members to be valued, and we strive to protect all people from harassment and discrimination of any kind, whether at a congress, working on a committee, or in other GCNA activities, forums, and communications.

We will do this through strengthening of our policies, making educational resources on diversity and inclusion available to members and committees, and continuing to find ways to recognize all members of our community for their contributions to the carillon art.
