For a QA guild I would consider some of the following:

  • Book clubs
  • Brown Bags
  • Lunch and Learns
  • Demos to non-guild members
  • Rewards, awards and presents
  • Internal Testing Conference Day
  • External Conference Group Outings
  • Bi-weekly meetings on topics of interest
  • Mugs, hats. t-shirts, etc. with QA guild on them
  • Slack channels within the existing workspace (or whatever IM tool)
  • Bullet points that get longer and longer just to see if you are reading this
  • Humor

As you've already sensed though, without considerable effort, this group will 'fade' over time. In my experience, it essentially requires one or two highly motivated individuals to keep the effort going as "everyone should pitch in to keep it going" just doesn't work. Even if those individuals don't present all the time, they need to have the energy to see out other presenters.

Note: My most recent experience included setting up a testbusters_guild slack channel!
