PNNA Annual Convention and Nor’wester news

Greetings!

The 2nd Quarter 2013 edition of the PNNA’s publication, The Nor’wester, is now available online at http://www.pnna.org/news/pdf/PNNAnews2013_Q2.pdf, and free black-and-white paper copies will be available at the PNNA convention. Back issues are also available online at http://www.pnna.org/news/norwester_online.html.

Thank you again for your interest in the PNNA, and I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming (April 12-14) annual PNNA convention in Tukwila, Washington! If you require more convention information, please see http://www.pnna.org/convention/convention.html. Please note there has been a change in the convention keynote speaker … it will now be ANA V.P. Walt Ostromecki instead of ANA Executive Director Jeff Shevlin. The time is 1:00 p.m. on Saturday. Walt won’t be speaking about the ANA (as Jeff had planned), but he will give an interesting and entertaining talk about “dumb coins.”

As a reminder, if you signed up for a free PNNA membership at a convention in the past couple years, you need to attend this year’s spring or fall convention and fill out a new free membership form to continue your free membership. Paid memberships are also available at http://www.pnna.org/info/membership.html.
