Council has created a number of Committees, with a Council member as chairman, and appoints members to each (known as Officials). Each Committee has Terms of Reference that can be seen by clicking on the Committee name. To see more about each person click their picture.

The smooth running of the British Go Association depends on the freely given time of all those listed, and others. Council would like to thank them all. Volunteers are always welcome - please consult the list of vacancies and contact the President to discuss the opportunities.
