We are now planning for our 70th, Conference and Convention. The event will be held on Saturday, October 11th, 2014 in conjunction with the New Hampshire Coin and Currency Expo October 10th,-11th, at the Radisson Hotel/ Center of New Hampshire, 700 Elm Street, Manchester, NH. This year’s program will include the John Kittredge Young Numismatist Program sponsored by NENA and the Kittredge Foundation. Other highlights of the Convention will include Educational Presentations, an Exhibits Workshop, Exhibits, What is it Table and our Annual Meeting that will include the election of officers. We are always looking for Exhibitors and Speakers for our programs. If you would like to place an exhibit or give a talk please contact me by email or write us.
As I reported in the January issue of NENA News our biggest challenge for 2014 is to attract new members to our Board. I am happy to report we have made significant progress with the appointment of several new members to our board including Mel Petty who has taken over as our Webmaster; Robert Hess has accepted the Directors position and Stanley Sobiech has agreed to take over as our Treasurer. I would like to thank them for volunteering and look forward to working with them. I also want to express my gratitude to Steve Pearsall for his service to this association as State Director for New Hampshire, creating our website and serving as the webmaster, and to Joe Duval for his service as Treasurer and agreeing to continue as our News Director.
We now meet via conference call to save on travel expenses and time and only meet about six times a year for an hour or so on Saturday mornings.
Also please check your Club’s listing in the NENA Newsletter or on this Website and verify all information including meeting times, location and contact information. Please let us know if there are any corrections or an addition to your Club’s listing.
If you have any ideas or suggestions on how we may better serve you, please let us know.
