Presidents Comments

By William Harkins

I would like to start by thanking you, our members, for your support through your membership and donations to our programs. This is your organization and in order to make it successful we need your participation. Whether you fill a vacancy on our board, submit a news article, 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, it is important to the success of our organization. I am also asking our members and clubs to promote our organization and help bring in new members. Please show your support by attending this year’s Conference and Convention.

Plans are being finalized for our 73rd, Conference and Convention that will be held on November 4th in conjunction with the New Hampshire Coin and Currency Expo, November 3-4, 2017 at the Radisson Hotel/Center of New Hampshire, 700 Elm Street, Manchester, N.H. Plans include the John Kittredge Young Numismatist Program sponsored by NENA and the Kittredge Foundation. Other highlights of the Convention will include Educational Presentations, Competitive Exhibits, Exhibiting Workshop, ANA information booth, Club Table, and What-is-it Table. Our Annual Meeting will include a brief talk related to this year’s medal design, along with awards and the election of officers. 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 and vote on the exhibits and to pick up this year’s medals set.

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.
