AGA May Board Meeting and Upcoming Meeting June 28

Tuesday June 16, 2020

In the regularly scheduled May 2020 meeting of the AGA Board of Directors, the board discussed the continued impact of COVID-19 on the go community, including forthcoming recommendations to continue to minimize or adjust in person go play given COVID-19 related health concerns and re-evaluation of the possibility of rating certain online games. They also approved the 2021FY budget, discussed virtual activities that could be offered as a “mini-congress,” and reviewed a proposal for a go map application.  You can find the minutes of that meeting here.  
You can find the minutes of the April special meeting (convened to decide whether or not to cancel the 2020 US Go congress) here.  The summary of that meeting was previously published and can be found here.  

The AGA Board has added an additional meeting on June 28, 2020.  The topics of discussion include the annual report, online events for early August, rank certificate program, ratings, AGA privacy policy, conflict of interest policy, and long-term goals and priorities.  For more information, you can find the detailed agenda here.
