Welcome to the Guidelines International Network.  We hope you find our website easy to navigate, as well as informative.  The website facilitates communication, engagement and collaboration with and amongst our members.

The website is here for you, so please use it and give us feedback – we want to hear of ways to make it even better for you.  Members should always login, as there is lots of information just for you!  Please take a look at the Project/Collaboration board where new projects and working groups will seek volunteers, as well as the areas for all of the  working groups and regional communities along with their discussion boards.
