Allan Abramson has been re-appointed President for another 2-year term by the American Go Association’s Board of Directors, reports Board Chair Roy Schmidt. “Allan’s initiatives for new, permanent membership cards, cost-reduction measures during the recession, and promotion of online, members-only tournaments won strong support for his re-appointment,” Schmidt told the E-Journal. Abramson pledged to re-double his efforts to promote growth of membership and expand online tournaments to include all AGA members during his next term. Polly Pohl was also re-appointed as AGA Secretary, with the Board expressing its “deepest gratitude for Polly’s accurate record-keeping and tireless fact-checking,” said Schmidt.
