There are two types of members when we talk about the Guild structure. One is the legal members of an LLC – who are the legal owners in the State of Oregon. The other is the general sense of member which is anyone who is involved in the Guild – owners, investors, apprentices, assistants, graduates, managing partners, etc. The name we use for everyone is “compa”, which is something like compañero, for people working together in a deeply personal and intimate way, often with a bit of a rebellious connotation.
