President’s Message for Summer 2017

NASC…

Hello everyone! Hard to believe that summer is here again already!By the time you read this message,the NASC will have had its latest board meeting at Long Beach. Going forward, we will continue to have regular board meetings on the Saturday morning of each Long Beach Coin Expo right at the convention center. So, if you are planning to be at the show anyway, plan on coming a little early to join us at our meeting. If you participate in your local club, consider becoming your club’s NASC representative as well.
The NASC’s annual Golden StateCoin Show on August 26-27, 2017, atthe Arcadia Masonic Center is rapidlyapproaching. Remember that free admission to our annual show is one of the perks of your NASC membership. I hope to see many NASC members there to support our dealers and join the fun. Tables have been selling fast and ANACS coin grading service will be at the show taking submissions, too. At the show, we will once again have our awards banquet which was very popular last year. Please take the time to nominate someone you think deserving of an NASC award this year. For information on tables, the awards banquet or anything else related to the show please contact me or Don Berry.
Of course, one of the main attractions of the Golden State Coin Show is the annual Nona G. Moore gold coin raffle. This year, we will once again be raffling off 35 gold coins at the show with the top prize being a certified mint state $20 Liberty double eagle! Remember that all profits from this raffle are distributed to NASC member clubs. Raffle tickets have been mailed out to the clubs, but if you need additional tickets please contact me or Harold Katzman.
Thank you again for your membership. As always, please feel free to contact me for any and all things related to the NASC.

Club Reporter-Southern Region

Ginny’s Gleanings:All the Southern California coin clubs are still reeling from the passing of Tom Fitzgerald, even though he had been ill. He was truly beloved by all. Again the 49th Annual CSNA Educational Symposium was inspirational and informative. All the speakers were excellent. Congratulations to Phil Iversen for another well-done job. Thank you to all the club secretaries who faithfully mail or e-mail me their clubs’ bulletins. It is very much appreci- ated. Many of the clubs are preparing for coin shows this summer, so double check the list of upcoming shows in the TCN. You never know where you may find that elusive coin that you need. “For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” —Nelson Mandela
