The FEGGA Member Associations recently voted in their new Chairman Olafur Por Agustsson from Iceland. Olafur has served on the board for the past four years, serving as Vice Chairman to outgoing Chairman Stig Persson from Sweden for the past two years. Olafur is currently the Club Manager at Keilir Golf Club.

Olafur commented following his election “After being on the FEGGA board for the past four years. I am honoured and looking forward to working as chairman for the next two years. The challenges that face FEGGA are exiting and show how much we have as a Federation developed and grown over what is a very short time. I hope that we can visit many countries that are part of our Federation with our new initiative The FEGGA Roadshow. Being from a small organisation in Iceland I know how much FEGGA has to offer  especially to new smaller associations, we all have to start from somewhere and the support that we were given through Dean Cleaver and FEGGA in Iceland has proven to be dynamic for our association”.

Olafur also made the National news in Iceland regarding his new role as Chairman.

Kamil Pacenka of CzechRepublic takes on the Vice Chairman role, having served as a board member for the past four years.

FEGGA also welcomed  two new members to the board, these being Paul Worster from United Kingdom, and also Tuukka Monttinen from Finland. Both are past Chairman’s of their respected associations, these being the British & International Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA) and the Finnish Greenkeepers Association (FGA)

FEGGA also said a fond farewell to outgoing Chairman Stig Persson, and outgoing board member for the past four years Michael McFeely. Both have done outstanding work for FEGGA and all Associations appreciate the valuable contribution that both have played within their specific roles.

Michael McFeely will shortly be taking on the role of President for the GCSAI, of which FEGGA wish him much success for his future role.
