Who is the BGA?
The British Go Association is made up of several hundred fans of the game of Go, mostly British or with British connections, of all ages and backgrounds.
As well of players of the game they are team members, champions, tournament organisers and winners, youth players, teachers, organisers and so on, as illustrated above.
Who Does What?
Our organisation is made up of a Council formed of three elected honorary officers (President, Teasurer and Secretary) and elected and co-opted members. There are Committees responsible for the various areas of our work, with all appointed officers and job holders (all of whom are volunteers) assigned to one or more Committee as appropriate.
You can see the current holders of positions by exploring our organisation structure and looking out our Council and Committees. This also shows our Life Members and Honorary Vice-Presidents. Click on the name of each BGA Committee to see the officers and positions associated with that Committee, or look at the Full List of Officials.
We have a list of the various Official posts which are Vacancies, if you are thinking of helping us.
There are many other ways to help the development and running of Go in Britain, without taking a permanent position. If you have specific skills - or indeed just the inclination and some spare time - there are usually one-off tasks in the area of event organisation, teaching, promotion and so on.
Also you can make a Help Us to promote Go by making a donation or helping in another way.
