Open Session to take place on October 14, audio to be posted online
The American Numismatic Association Board of Governors will hold a regular meeting via teleconference on Tuesday, Oct. 14, at 4 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time.
The Board will vote on if the Association will use electronic voting in the upcoming 2015 Board election. In January 2013, the Board voted to approve the process of offering an electronic voting option in the 2013 ANA election “to simplify the election process, reduce the overall expense and provide our membership with an up to date service option.” The firm of Survey and Ballot Systems was engaged in 2013 using its proposed hybrid web and mail ballot option. Thirty thousand dollars was budgeted in 2013 for the election process.
Other items on the agenda are:
- The Eugene H. Gardner YN Scholarship: Heritage Auctions is seeking approval to endow a scholarship fund to be named in honor of Eugene H. Gardner. Seven thousand fifty dollars has been received from generous donors to seed the fund with an additional $50,000 to be paid by the end of 2015. The funding is intended to benefit YNs at Summer Seminar.
- Colorado Wyoming Numismatic Association Donation: The Colorado Wyoming Numismatic Association (CWNA) ceased operation as of June 18, 2014 and agreed to turn over its liquidated funds to the ANA to be earmarked for the ANA Adult Summer Seminar Scholarship Fund. Upon Board approval, $2,150.00 will be forwarded to the ANA, for up to two scholarships of $1075.00 apiece for Colorado/Wyoming resident recipients, with a balance of approximately $17,060.36 paid in January 2015 when CWNA’s bank certificate of deposit matures.
- Honorary Host Chair for the 2015 World’s Fair of MoneySM
- 2014-15 Fiscal Year Budget
