The ANA has partnered with Election Services Co. to conduct the 2019 Board of Governors election.

All ballots include biographical information provided by the election candidates. These materials, as well as a Candidate Q&A, are available in the June issue of The Numismatist and online.

Those elected this year will be installed at the ANA’s 128th Anniversay Convention in Chicago on August 16.
