If you get a call about housing for an ANA convention, that call is not from the ANA

Over the last two years, the ANA Convention Department has received numerous complaints about third-party companies that contact ANA dealers and members with offers to book hotel rooms for them at the National Money Show and the World’s Fair of Money. These companies have no affiliation with the ANA, and booking accommodations through them is risky to you and detrimental to the Association in a number of ways.

Notes from the Board of Governors meeting at the FUN Show

I received a few dispatches from Kim Kiick, one of the longtime managers here at the ANA, from the Board of Governors meetings at the FUN Show. Here is what the Board of Governors have been working on: 

 

  • Motion by Governor Lyon, second by Governor Adkins, to engage the firm of Survey and Ballot Systems, using their proposed hybrid web and mail ballot option, to conduct the 2013 ANA election. Passed.
  • Motion by Governor Rottinghaus, second by Governor Ellis, to accept Wednesday through Sunday as the official show days of the World's Fair of Money. After discussion, President Hallenbeck tabled the motion, to be taken up at the New Orleans National Money Show board meeting. 
  • Motion by Vice President Ostromecki, second by Ellis, to confirm the Presidential appointment of Hollie Wieland, of Karp Neu Hanlon, P.C., as General Counsel.

Exhibiting is an excellent way to educate and compete

At each ANA World's Fair of Money and National Money Show, the ANA offers a competitive exhibit area for members to show material from their collection as well as educate the public about a type of material that they may have not normally known about.
