Tuesday July 24, 2012

The AGA Board of Directors will decide on a replacement for Western Region rep Gordon Castanza during the upcoming U.S. Go Congress. “but before the Congress Board meeting,” according to Board Chair Andy Okun. Castanza retired on July 13 (Gordon Castanza, Citing Health, Resigns from AGA Board, 7/14 EJ); his replacement will complete Castanza’s term, which runs through 2013. The Board will consider the unsuccessful candidates from the current Western Region board election as well as any other willing and eligible candidates nominated before the end of July by Western Region AGA members. “We think this will provide reasonable continuity of representation for the Western Region while interfering as little as possible with the current election,” Okun said.
