ANA voter Apathy?

Just saw the final results for the ANA president, vp, and governors. First, congrats to all elected and all who voted! I am a bit saddened, however, to see that roughly only 31% of eligible ANA members bothered to vote. This organization deserves better attention from its membership. ANA membership is dwindling and will continue if the majority of our membership fails to get involved in one way or another. Don't let the ANA turn into the two dollar bill!

It's not the ANA. There doing a good job. Many people are on vacation during the summer months. I also read in coin magazine that collectors are down five to six percent. That's allot. The biographies I started to read but there was so much information I think it made it hard to make a decision. We will survive I'm sure the new officers have the best of the ANA in mind.  Thanks for the forum.

I think many of the membership just pay their dues, read their Numismatist each month, and ignore the rest.  For example, our blogs and forums are probably actively followed by no more than 100 members.  I base this estimate on folks that post on either on occasion.  In fact, since I got here in November 18, I bet less than 100 different people have posted something.  So, not so much apathy, as complete and utter disinterest.  The ANA needs to put a selected and thoughtful blogs in the Numismatist each month, along with instructions on how to access the blogs/forums.

 Definitely agreed. Thousands upon Thousands of ANA members are only members to read The Numismatist. Then there is probably another few hundred who do not know how the site works. I’d say only 50-100 members actually use the forums and blog.
