The voting members of the Accredited Gemologists Association (AGA) have elected distinguished gemologists Gary A. Roskin, Martin Fuller and Alberto Scarani to its Board of Governors.
Seven current board members were also reelected to serve for the 2023-2026 term of the all-volunteer Board. Returning board members are Gina D’Onofrio, Antoinette Matlins, and Donna Hawrelko as AGA Governors for the upcoming term.
AGA Executive offices will include returning board members 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,” said Teri Brossmer, AGA President. “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.”
The new Board will be sworn in during the 2023 AGA Tucson Gemological Conference on Wednesday, February 1, 2023, and recognized later that evening at the AGA Gala dinner and Bonanno Award presentation.
