Join us as we celebrate the 46th
Annual American Numismatic Association Summer Seminar, held on the
campus of Colorado College in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado,
adjacent to ANA headquarters.
Each year we ask, how can we improve Summer Seminar? Members
responded with valuable information and we take member feedback
seriously. Here are some of the things members asked for and what
we've done as a result:
Make the program financially sound and accessible to all
Members agree that Summer Seminar is the best educational
experience in numismatics. So, they've asked us to safeguard this
incredible program for future generations by ensuring it is
financially self-sufficient. At the same time members asked us to
keep it affordable and accessible to all members regardless of age
or financial resources. This is a tall order and how we've achieved
it is two-fold. To reach financial self-sufficiency, we've
streamlined the schedule to reduce expenses and adjusted
registration fees to cover seminar costs. To make the seminar
accessible to more members we created the Robert Lecce Advanced
Scholarship program. Scholarships are merit-based but they also
take financial resources into account. This is very exciting
because it means seminar donations will fund scholarships and
financial assistance instead of being used to cover seminar
expenses. If you'd like to contribute to the Robert Lecce Advanced
Scholarship program, complete the donation section of the
registration form located on page 15.
Bring back the Denver Mint Tour.
When the U.S. Mint in Denver adopted a 4-day work week, we could
no longer offer the Friday tour to the Mint. With the new
streamlined schedule we can once again offer the Denver Mint tour,
which is scheduled on Thursday, June 26, this year. For tour
information, see page 16.
Get us home before July 4th.
Many years ago, when the Summer Seminar expanded its sessions,
the program dates began crossing over the July 4th holiday. With
the streamlined seminar schedule, Session 2 participants will now
depart on July 3rd. This will allow members to attend seminar and
spend Independence Day with family and friends. Take some time to
familiarize yourself with the schedule located on pages 8 and
You asked, we listened - and it turns out what you wanted
resonates with our goals for the coming year: expand and promote
knowledge of numismatics, provide exceptional member service and
ensure our long-term sustainability. It's all part of A New
Approach and it feels good to be on the same page.
Regardless of your numismatic interests, we are confident that
our classes, instructors, events and academic environment will
further your enjoyment and excitement for our magnificent hobby.
