AGA announces new Governing Board to serve 2023 to 2026 term.
The Accredited Gemologists Association (AGA) voting members have elected its 2023-2026 Board of Governors. The eleven-member all-volunteer Board includes representative leadership and experience from across the gem and jewelry industry, and AGA Membership.
The upcoming 2023-2026 AGA Board of Governors term adds distinguished gemologists Gary A. Roskin, Martin Fuller and Alberto Scarani to serve as new Governors, and sees the return of seven current board members, reelected and returning to serve. Gina D’Onofrio, Antoinette Matlins, and Donna Hawrelko will return as AGA Governors. AGA Executive offices will include Teri Brossmer to serve a second term as President, with Vice-President Cigdem Lule, PhD, Secretary, Adam Ostrow, and Treasurer, Heidi Harders, and AGA’s immediate past-president Stuart Robertson.
“It has been an honor to serve as AGA President for the past 3 years,” writes Terri Brossmer, AGA President, who will stay on for another 3-year term. “I am proud of the AGA Board for implementing creative ways to thrive and serve the AGA community, despite the challenges of a worldwide Pandemic. I am particularly pleased that the AGA just witnessed the largest group of members answer our call to stand for election to the AGA board that the association has seen in decades. Clearly, AGA’s growth and expanded educational programs, and advocacy for industry standards, is inspiring more and more members to volunteer time to AGA. I look forward to working with the new AGA Board to advance our existing initiatives and to develop new and exciting ways to serve our membership and the gemological community.”
AGA also extends their appreciation to the retiring board members Richard Hughes, Ted Irwin, and Raymond Mason for their selfless dedication, time, and leadership serving AGA in recent years.
