News | ANA Official Post | jfletcher

The American Numismatic Association (ANA) is organizing a committee to begin searching for a new executive director more than a year before Edward C. Rochette retires from thatposition."The ANA Board of Governors has been talking informally about the process to replace EdRochette, who rejoined the staff two years ago on a temporary but needed basis," saysAssociation President H. Robert Campbell. "We are way out in front of this all-importantsearch process."Rochette is scheduled to retire on July 31, 2001. The Board anticipates his replacement willbe hired by May 1, allowing for an overlap in management."I'm encouraged by the Board's decision to begin this process early," says Rochette, whoalso served on the ANA Board of Governors and as president. "The organization is verysound; our finances are probably in the best shape they have been in years; and the staff isunquestionably the finest I've ever had the pleasure to work with."Campbell says the 10 people serving on the Executive Search Committee will represent across-section of the hobby, "from casual collector to professional dealer; from respectedresearcher to average reader of coin magazines. We are looking for someone who knowsthe ANA and is familiar with the hobby. In addition, the ideal candidate will be a respectedleader of our organization and our staff at headquarters."The Board will be considering a time-table for the committee when ANA Governors meet inPhiladelphia at the Association's 109th Anniversary Convention in August. Campbellanticipates that the committee will have to sift through more than 200 applications beforeapproving 10 candidates for the Board to narrow down to four or five. The finalists will beinterviewed by the Board next spring."The ANA is not rushed in its search for a new executive director," Campbell says. "We havebeen very fortunate to have Ed Rochette at the helm these past two years and know he willcontinue to serve us well until the new director is in place. He also will continue to serve inan advisory role after he steps down as executive director."Rochette, who served 20 years on the ANA staff (1966-86) both as executive director andeditor of The Numismatist-and six years on the Board of Governors (1987-93), was asked bythe Board in July 1998 to oversee the day-to-day operations of the Association on an interimbasis.
