 Welcome to the Members Directory of the Society of Gilders!

Please search here when seeking technical help from a member. You may also seek help in the “Society of Gilders” discussion group on LinkedIn.

You can browse the whole Directory, or search for a gilder/member by name, specialty, or location.

  • In the full membership list below, Gilders are listed in order of state or territory.
  • The Category box on the left filters members by Location (International and United States) and Specialty interests. 
  • The Search box on the right enables a search by name, city, country, and more. Use at least 3 characters to search by state. 
  •  Clicking a letter in the Search box yields all with last name or company beginning with that letter.
  • Clicking an underlined detail in a record filters members by that detail.  For example, selecting a city will display a list of members in that city.

The Category box filters members by Location (International and United States) and Specialty interests. Please note, that any search terms with less than 3 characters will be ignored. This can not be changed as this is a database limitation.

Note to members: You can see all “public” entries without logging in; only members who log in can see information that is “private”.
