Dues Forgiveness and Members Relief Programs

We are pleased to announce that all chapter members’ dues will be paid ahead for the coming year, using moneys left over from cancelled events, and supplemented by reserve funds. All members’ renewal dates will now be extended by one year from the last renewal.

Members Relief Fund Donations

We have also established a relief fund, to assist AGO members who may be dealing with financial hardship or uncertainties. If any of you are able to respond to the forgiveness of your dues, and wish to provide some assistance to members in need, donations may be made to this relief fund in two ways:

      • Electronically, by selecting “Donations or Payments” under the “Giving” tab on the web site menu, or
      • By mail, send a check payable to the TCAGO:
