BUILD THE GUILD 101
I have several years experience when it comes in Guild Leadership and design. The best way/word to describe at to what makes a guild function is "DEDICATION". Success is not weighed because of outstanding leadership or outstanding membership, but it is weighed by the leadership and the members as a body/guild community.
