ANA Summer Seminar 2000 will be two, one-week sessions
The American Numismatic Association (ANA) annual Summer Seminar has become so popular that two, one-week sessions are planned for 2000 (July 1-7 and 8-14). 

“What started 32 years ago as the brainchild of Ed Rochette has grown in popularity so much that for the past two years we have had to limit the number of students attending the seminar to 300,” ANA Educator Gail Baker says. “To accomodate the growing number of students who want to attend and the ever-increasing number of classes we offer at seminar, we have expanded the one-week program to two.”

Each session of the Summer Seminar will offer 23 classes (46 total), covering every topic from ancient coins to the use of computers for numismatists. Twenty-one new classes will be offered, and five classes geared to non-numismatists. 

“Seminar students can attend one class from either session, or stay both weeks and select one class per session,” Baker says.

Between the sessions, the ANA has planned several activites, including:
  1. The second annual “Double Eagle ‘No Pro’ Golf Tournament” on Friday, July 7- a fundraiser for ANA educational 
  2. A scenic overnight trip (July 7-8) to America’s newest national park- Black Canyon of the Gunnison- that offers spectacular natural beauty.
  3. An overnight trip (July 7-8) to historic Taos, New Mexico, where Native American, European and cowboy influences provide an enchanting atmosphere.
The overnight trips are $50 per person for Seminar Students attending both weeks or $195 for those staying only one week.

The ANA will also offer optional numismatic field trips to Denver and the United States Mint on July 7 and 14. 

The costs of tuition, meals and dormitory accomodations remains a bargain: $479 for double accomodations, or $579 for single (half-day classes are slightly less). Off-campus hotel packages also are available at reduced, group rates. 

The ANA has arranged for airfare discounts of 10-15 percent on both Delta and United Airlines. For details, call Delta Airlines at 800/241-6760 and refer to file no. 135493A; or United Airlines at 800/5212-4041 and refer to meeting ID# 581 CK.
