The goal of the Master Guide Program is not only to recognize NYSOGA members who have through years of experience and advanced training reached a level of professionalism far beyond the requirements to become a licensed NYS Guide, but to show the general public that our organization promotes these higher standards. It is also the goal of this program to inspire our members to become master guides through such experience and advanced training
NYSOGA Master Guide Program
The Master Guide Program is not associated with the NYS Licensed Guide Program. This is strictly an in house program to identify guides within the association who have, through their years of experience and other criteria, reached a level of expertise to be identified as a master guide.
If designated as a master guide after review by the Master Guide review panel, such guide will be noted as such in the NYSOGA website listing of its member guides.
Once designated as a Master Guide such person must be willing to mentor other NYSOGA member guides.
