ANA members can learn more about Board of Governors (BOG) candidates during the Candidate Forum, to be held 29th April 2021 from 5 pm to 7 pm MST on Zoom. The Numismatist’s Editor-in-Chief Caleb Noel will serve as moderator of the event, during which BOG hopefuls will answer questions relevant to the ANA and have the opportunity to express their views on a number of topics. You can register for the event online.

At the end of May, election ballots will be sent out to all members entitled to vote. ANA members 13 years of age or older as of 31st March 2021 and who have been members of the Association for at least one year are eligible to vote in the election, as are ANA-member clubs.

Members can either vote via mail (the ANA will send a pre-printed return envelope and candidate biographies/platforms) or online using an eBallot. Completed ballots must be received by 1st July 2021 or they will not be counted.

Those elected this year will be installed at the ANA World’s Fair of Money® in Chicago, which opens 10th August 2021.
