News From AGO Headquarters

In an effort to increase the value of the benefits package for AGO voting members, access to the Positions Available list on the AGO National Web site is limited exclusively to AGO voting members. It is appropriate that these listings should be made available only to voting members, since members’ dues pay for the operation of the Guild’s Web site and maintenance of its job postings board. In addition, this new limitation will ensure that only those organists who have agreed to abide by the AGO’s Code of Ethics and Code of Professional Standards will have access to the jobs advertised on the AGO’s Web site.

IMPORTANT MEMBER LOGIN INFORMATION: When you go to view the details of a Position Available online, you will be asked to fill in a User Name and Password. Your User Name and Password will be your unique AGO identification number. This number is located above your name on the address label that appears on your copy of TAO each month. When prompted to fill in the User Name and Password fields, please enter your ID number in both fields to gain access to the details of all job openings. This login procedure may be further refined and enhanced in the weeks ahead.
