Members enjoy the following benefits:
Members attend regularly scheduled meetings held in destinations in the St. Louis area and are given in-depth explanations of the sites by in- house experts. In addition, members are able to participate in the annual “Tour Guides Tour” at which fellow members share with their colleagues information and styles of presentation.
Most of our members have become “Certified Tour Guide” (CTG) for St. Louis by successfully completing a written test proving his or her competence regarding the history and knowledge of landmarks in the St. Louis area. On passing, a Certification Rocker is given to the Guide to be placed under the membership lapel pin.
Members attend and participate in business meetings where all new thoughts and ideas are welcomed. Contact and networking with other members is encouraged.
Members are eligible to buy the liability insurance provided by the National Federation of Tour Guides. Members have access to the “Members Only” section of our website. For an additional membership fee, members can also be listed separately on the public website as step-on guides. SOGs can be hired independently and negotiate their own hourly rates.
