The ideal candidates will have knowledge of and experience within a collector-based community – such as numismatics – in roles such as a collector, dealer, author or researcher. Applicants must be able to build relationships within the numismatic community, to understand and implement the ANA’s mission, objectives and strategic goals, and be able to convey that understanding and implementation to the Board of Governors, ANA members, staff members, and others outside the numismatic field.
