2014 PNNA Elections

TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE PNNA: (by election chairman Bill McKivor)

It is time once again to pick those who would lead us for the next two years. We are looking for a few great people to serve as officers and on the board of directors.

Please consider service to the club, if you have time it is more than worthwhile. You get to know many people in the numismatic community, and get to meet collectors of nearly every possible phase of coin, token, and medal collecting, and help guide the PNNA to bigger and better things. The term of office is 2014-2016.

Thus, we are looking for nominees.  If you would like to run for any of the offices, President, Vice President, Treasurer, or Secretary — or for the board of directors — please contact me.

We need to have a slate of candidates by the first of March, an election soon after, and the results will be announced at the PNNA Convention in Tukwila on May 3rd.

If you are a member of the board, and have not contacted me with an OK to run again, please do, as I cannot enter anyone’s name without permission. And if you are a person just now thinking about helping the PNNA with your hands and your heart, I shall happily sign you up to run. — Bill McKivor, Election Chairman, ph. (206) 244-8345, address PO Box 46135, Seattle, WA 98146 or email copperman@thecoppercorner.com.
