Candidate for Governor: Oded Paz

Arco, ID
ANA 3120152


PazI was born in Tel-Aviv, Israel, in 1963. I moved to the United States in 1999. I resided in California 1999-2009 and have resided in Idaho 2009-present.


I will bring the ANA closer to the individual collector, local coin clubs and smaller coin dealers around the nation.


We need to re-focus on those members who cannot afford to attend major ANA conventions, yet are still avid numismatic collectors and local dealers. I will make this happen!


The ANA must continue enhancing its Internet and social media presence, while upgrading its database and computer system.


I'm the national coordinator for the ANA's Club Representative Program-a program that was previously stagnant and was revitalized by my dedication, hard work and enthusiasm.


I initiated and am the editor of a monthly newsletter sent to the ANA's club representatives that is called "What's Going on at the ANA?" The newsletter provides accurate information regarding the ANA, and it's used as a platform that is shared with the ANA club members.


I am an avid numismatist, researcher and collector of various coins and exonumia.


I believe that educating the youth must be on the top of the ANA's priorities. We have seen many other hobbies dwindle down due to lack of new collectors. We must not let this happen to numismatics-I will make sure of that. After all, today's youth are the potential buyers of our collections tomorrow.


My background and experience includes owning and running multi-million-dollar businesses, with emphasis on operations, marketing and sales.


Being an active member is not anything new to me, both in business and on numismatic boards. I feel very comfortable and ¬≠confident in taking part in deciding the ANA's future.


I have received multiple exhibit awards, including two best of show, and an ANA People's Choice Award in 2009.


I was presented Numismatic News' Numismatic Ambassador award (2011).


With my can-do and will-do attitude, I will represent you on the ANA Board of Governors.
