Leadership Working For Its Members


President USAIGC/IAIGC             Paul Spadaro paul.spadaro@usaigc.com
International Technical Director  Mary Bakke m143bny@aol.com

Organizational Change 1          USAIGC 07/2016
In 2001 the Prsident of the USAIGC/IAIGC organized our International Club Owners Association by giving EVERY CLUB A VOTE, A VOICE on all Rules and Policies brought forth by the membership every two years. The success of our Open Membership Vote eliminates the need for a Club Owners Committee. The elimination of a Club Owners Committee keeps out the politics in voting for USAIGC/IAIGC Rules and Policies.

Organizational Change 2         IAIGC 07/2016
The above change also applies to our International Association of Independent Clubs which is growing each year for the same reasons. The success of our Open Membership Vote eliminates the need for a Club Owners Committee. The elimination of a Club Owners Committee keeps out the politics in voting for USAIGC/IAIGC Rules and Policies.

The President & Technical Director have no VOTE, unless the recommendation is against the principles of the USAIGC/IAIGC OT there is a tie in the voting.

Association Purpose

The leadership of the USAIGC/IAIGC works for its membership by supporting our membership and providing our membership with successful programs and a Worldwide Competitive Program. The removal of those committees solidifies the ONE CLUB, ONE VOTE RULE put into place by the President in 2001
