We encourage all of our Speech School family to join the Guild.
Founded in 1969, the mission of the Atlanta Speech School Guild is to foster community-building and fundraising to support the Speech School. The Guild spearheads various social, educational and fundraising events throughout the year, including the Language & Literacy Gala, our largest financial aid fundraiser. The 2019 Gala will mark the Guild's 50th year of service with a special Golden Anniversary Celebration that is not to be missed. The Language and Literacy Luncheon and Fashion Show at Neiman Marcus will cap off the Guild's 50th year this Spring. While you can join any time, the annual membership drive runs August through October each year.
The Guild has an exciting 2019-20 calendar, including:
