Wednesday September 22, 2021

Justin Teng has been appointed to serve the remainder of Ted Terpstra’s term as Board Member At-Large on the AGA’s Board of Directors. Terpstra has resigned his position on the Board, effective September 16th. A current and long-time go organizer in the San Diego area, Terpstra has served in a number of capacities for the AGA over the years, including as AGA Executive Vice President (2012-2014), Western Region Representative to the AGA Board (2014-2016), and most recently as At-Large Member of the AGA Board of Directors.

“Ted has done so much for go in the US, and particularly for go in the San Diego area,” said Board Chair Lisa Scott. “Including organizing the 2017 US Go Congress and inspiring the Girls Championship Tournament.  I look forward to seeing what plans he has for bringing go to southern California in the future!”

With fewer than 12 months remaining in Terpstra’s term, the AGA Board appointed Justin Teng to serve the remainder as Board Member At-Large (through August 31, 2022). “Justin is well known as a strong player and tournament organizer, particularly through his work with youth with the Redmond Cup and Girls Championship,” said Board Chair Lisa Scott. “We are pleased to have him join the AGA Board.”
