Although I've written in the forthcoming British Go Journal that all Council members are offering themselves for re-election, it turns out that two of the existing members have recently decided not to for a variety of personal reasons.

We thank them for their efforts and hope that they will still continue working with the BGA to promote and develop Go in the UK.
