AGA Vice President for Development Stephanie Yin met with U.S. Congresswoman  Grace Meng (D, NY 6th CD in Queens) on August 18 to discuss potential future collaborations. They discussed AI and go, social media platforms, local and national politics, education, and the Congresswoman’s new National Museum of Asian Pacific American History and Culture. The Congresswoman was especially impressed by the performance of students at Yin’s New York Institute of Go (NYIG), with 14 of the 20 students competing at the recent 2022 U.S. Go Congress winning awards. Congresswoman Meng says she hopes to be able to attend future AGA events in the New York City area.
