Nominations are being accepted for the American Numismatic Association’s (ANA) 2019 Board of Governors election through March 1, 2019. The ANA is a nonprofit, educational organization and is governed by a nine-member Board, which includes a president, vice president and seven governors at large. The ANA’s federal charter, granted in perpetuity by the United States Congress, rests control of the Association in the hands of this Board.
This year, the terms of all nine current officers will expire. The newly elected members will be installed August 16, 2019, at the ANA’s 128th Anniversary Convention (World’s Fair of Money®️) in Chicago and will serve for the next two years.
ANA members with voting privileges can nominate candidates for the Board of Governors. Individual members 13 years of age or older as of March 31, and who have been members of the Association for at least one year as of that date, are entitled to vote. (ANA member clubs are entitled to one vote.) Nominations must be in writing and received by Executive Director Kim Kiick no later than March 1, 2019.
In order to be a candidate for office, a member must receive at least 25 nominations from member clubs in good standing and/or individual members in good standing. No member may nominate himself or herself and each individual member or club is allowed to nominate one person for president, one for vice president and seven for governor. Members 18 years of age or older as of March 31, and who have been a member of the Association for at least three consecutive years as of that date, are eligible to hold elected office.
