The American Numismatic Association has posted the list of candidates for the 2013 Board of Governor elections. Although the nomination process officially concludes on March 31, all of the qualified nominated candidates have accepted their nomination. The 2013 candidates are as follows:
After the official close of the nomination period, the ANA will post the candidates biographies and statement on the website. They will also be printed in The Numismatist.
A candidates forum will be held on May 11, noon through 2:00 PM at the National Money Show in New Orleans. ANA members attending the show should make time to attend and make sure the candidates hear your concerns about the organization. If you are not sure whether you want to go to the National Money Show, I would recommend that you go. Aside from going to an ANA show, which is a great experience in and of itself, it is in New Orleans. New Orleans is a fun town with great sites and excellent food! I am still looking forward to a nice café au lait at Café Du Monde in the French Market!
Elections will be held during the month of June with ballots due by July 1. If you would like to vote electronically, you can go here to register for online voting.
The ANA will announce election results at least 10 days prior to the World’s Fair of Money that will be held in Chicago, August 13-17, 2013. The new Board of Governors will be installed on August 16, 2013 at the show.
Your support for me and the ANA are greatly appreciated!
