Community is central to the Guild’s strength and success. Our Community Hubs having been designed and developed to help those working in architectural ironmongery to take an active role in the sector and to develop themselves, their networks and their industry.

There are regular Community Hub meetings throughout the UK, Ireland and Wales, as well as meetings in Hong Kong and the GCC region.

Each meeting typically includes a CPD seminar delivered by a technical expert, covering a range of topics from access control and pocket door systems to fire door regulation and social media.

Hubs also organise presentations from companies outside of the architectural ironmongery sector such as test facilities, building control and door manufacturers, to help ironmongers have a well-rounded knowledge of the whole industry.

Non-members can attend two of these meetings for free to get an insight in what the GAI and its Community Hubs have to offer.
