AGO NATIONAL HEADQUARTERS
PROVIDES WEB SITE HOSTING
FOR EVERY AGO CHAPTER
NEW YORK CITY The AMERICAN GUILD OF ORGANISTS (AGO) has established a new service by offering free Web site hosting to each of its local chapters. This new service is provided at no cost to all AGO chapters, including those that already have existing Web sites. Now every AGO chapter, regardless of its size or financial resources, can have its own Web site and unique Internet address through the official Web site of AGO National Headquarters<www.agohq.org>.
This innovative new service, approved by the AGO National Council in April, enables each chapter to create and update its own Web page in accordance with a standardized template. Each chapter has full control over the content of the page. With the Internet becoming an ever-increasing and preferred method to disseminate news and information, the AGOs commitment to its local chapters by providing this valuable new service demonstrates the national organizations support of its local affiliates and their communications.
The AMERICAN GUILD OF ORGANISTS is the national professional association serving the organ and choral music fields. Founded in 1896 as both an educational and service organization, the AGO seeks to set and maintain high musical standards and to promote understanding and appreciation of all aspects of organ and choral music. The mission of the AGO is to promote the organ in its historic and evolving roles, to encourage excellence in the performance of organ and choral music, and to provide a forum for mutual support, inspiration, education, and certification of Guild members. The Guild currently serves more than 20,000 members in 343 local chapters throughout the United States and abroad.
