GRIEVANCE PROCEDURES DISCONTINUED. As part of the restructuring of the American Guild of Organists in 2012, the discontinuation of the use of the Grievance Procedures was approved by the National Council and, as of July 1, 2013, they are no longer available for AGO members. However, the Code of Ethics, Code of Professional Standards, Discipline, Alternate Dispute Resolution, Mentor Program, Model Contract, Employment Review, Salary Guidelines and other Professional Development options are still available to support AGO members.
