Selection of the 2018 and 2019 National Money Show host cities was tabled at the October board meeting pending clarification of additional options. The board held a special teleconference meeting on November 20, at which time they voted to select Dallas as the host city for the 2018 National Money Show and Pittsburgh as the host for the 2019 show.
Other items discussed and/or determined at the October board meetings:
- An unbudgeted expenditure of $25,000 for a 125th anniversary promotional campaign was approved. It is anticipated that revenues from the campaign will exceed this initial expenditure.
- Governor Steve Ellsworth, chair of the development committee, made a presentation to the board on a fund development action plan. The governors, expressing their overwhelming support, each made a personal financial pledge for the upcoming year.
- A bid from Positive Protection Inc. to provide security for the 2017 National Money Show and World’s Fair of Money was accepted.
- Board members discussed at length various possibilities of offering additional educational and online learning opportunities. It was noted that three of the ANA’s correspondence course – Grading Coins Today, Introduction to Numismatics and Detecting Counterfeits – will be updated in FY 2016. In addition, the ANA website, money.org, will soon introduce several new educational endeavors.
