Minutes of PNNA board meeting
20 January 2007, Kent, Washington

The meeting was held at the Kent Commons in conjunction with the Boeing Employees Coin Club annual coin show.

The meeting was called to order by President Larry Gaye at 5:09 PM. Present were vice president Lisa Loos, secretary Eric Holcomb, treasurer Scott Loos, directors Rob Anglemier, Dick Billings, Del Cushing, Mark Gruner, Bill McKivor, Larry Rowe, Bruce Wonder, and appointed dealer-director Norm Mikat. Also present was PNNA member Randy Clark and possibly others.

Reports and Old Business:

Minutes – Larry Rowe made a motion to accept the October meeting minutes as written; it was seconded by Norm Mikat and passed.

Show Report – The upcoming April 2007 Tukwila convention is sold out with a waiting list. The South King County Coin Club will assist again; their offer was accepted by the show committee. SKCCC President Randy Clark was present to confirm the agreement on their behalf. A convention keynote speaker is needed.

Treasurer’s Report – Total PNNA balances are $46,627.90 plus equipment. Scott distributed an income/expense statement for 2006. Lisa Loos made a motion, seconded by Mark Gruner, to accept the treasurer’s report. The motion passed.

Elections/New Board Members – Larry previously said that we should be on the lookout for new board members to serve beginning in 2008 when we have our next elections. A request for nominations will be published. It was suggested that Al Schy might be willing to serve.

Memberships – Scott Loos previously suggested that we contract with Rachel Irish’s business, Membership Solutions, to handle the PNNA membership list and annual renewals. Scott subsequently received Rachel’s proposal to provide this service at a cost of $750 per year. Norm Mikat made a motion, seconded by Dick Billings, to accept this proposal. The motion passed. Transition to the new system will begin as soon as possible.

New Business:

Scholarship Applications – Printed and released.

ANA Board of Governor Nominations – The following nominations were approved: Walt Ostromecki (motion by Billings/second by Wonder); Joe Boling (Billings/McKivor), Tony Tumonis (Holcomb/Billings), Steve Esbach (S. Loos/Holcomb). The following request for a nomination was tabled: Patti Finner. The following additional nominations were approved by e-mail on February 12: Cliff Mishler and Chet Krause (Gaye/Billings). Tom Sheehan (Joe Boling’s campaign manager) requested that the PNNA consider a donation to Joe’s campaign. We decided that is probably best to leave donations up to individuals.

Seminars – Larry Gaye is interested in having a numismatic seminar in Portland; grading is a possible topic. He will keep us posted on the status.

Newsletters – Editor Eric Holcomb made a motion, seconded by Bill McKivor, to do a special February mailing (to include scholarship and exhibit applications and other information), as well as a special convention edition of The Nor’wester again for the second quarter of 2007. The motion passed.

Summer Seminar Scholarships – We previously approved $2,050 total for 2007 ANA Summer Seminar scholarships ($1,000 for an adult and $1,050, including a $50 field trip, for a YN). There are 38 classes at the seminar and these two scholarships available! Please help to promote this opportunity!

Misc. – Del has some old copies of Numismatist (received from Joe Boling), which Del needs to get rid of. Norm would like to see them first and will make arrangements with Del.

The meeting was adjourned at 5:59 PM.

Minutes prepared by Eric Holcomb, Secretary.
