West Coast go organizer Andy Okun was appointed President of the American Go Association (AGA) by the AGA Board of Directors at its June 3 meeting. Ted Terpstra of San Diego was appointed Executive Vice President. Their two-year term will begin on September 3rd. ”Andy will be a great President,” said outgoing AGA President Allan Abramson, “and Ted is a welcome addition as EVP.” Okun has chaired the Board since 2010 and is a longtime organizer in the Los Angeles area. “In the decade since I took up this wonderful game, the American go community and the new friends I’ve made have enriched my life tremendously,” Okun told the E-Journal. “This is a chance for me to give back a little. My thanks to my fellow board members for their confidence.” Ted Terpstra, president of the San Diego Go Club for the last five years, has been playing off and on since learning the game in the early 1970s and has taught many people to play in schools, after-school programs and even a Buddhist temple. He has been a NOAA meteorologist and worked in plasma physics research at Princeton and then General Atomics.
