President’s Message, March 2017

Presidents Comments

By William Harkins

 I would like to start by thanking our members for your support, through your membership and donations to our programs. This is your organization in order to make it successful we need your participation whether you fill a vacancy on our board, submit a news article, letter to the editor, place an exhibit, bring a child to our Y.N Program or just drop by the club table during one of our events and say hello. I am also asking our members and clubs to promote our organization and help bring in new members.

On Saturday, May 6th, the New England Numismatic Association will be holding a number of events in conjunction with the New Hampshire Coin and Currency Expo, May 5-6, 2017 at the Radisson Hotel, 700 Elm Street, Manchester, NH. Our plans include a Y.N. Program, Exhibits, Club Table and Board Meeting. We look forward to seeing our members so please visit the club table and say hello, this will also be a good time to view the exhibits.

Please help: we have a number of positions that need to be filled including Medals Coordinator and State Director for Vermont. If you know anyone that you think might be a good candidate for our Board please asks them to consider taking a position with us. Experience is not a problem as we will help train and give assistance to anyone willing to fill a position. We now meet via conference call to save on travel expenses and time and only meet about eight times a year for an hour or so on Saturday mornings.

Our 73rd, Conference and Convention will be held on November 4th, in conjunction with the New Hampshire Coin and Currency Expo, November 2-4, 2017 at the Radisson Hotel/Center of New Hampshire, 700 Elm Street, Manchester, N.H.

If you have any ideas or suggestions on how we may better serve you, please let us know. You may email directly by clicking on contact us or by mail NENA, P.O. Box 2061, Woburn, MA 01888.

Sincerely,

William Harkins
