Notes from the Board of Governors meeting at the FUN Show

I received a few dispatches from Kim Kiick, one of the longtime managers here at the ANA, from the Board of Governors meetings at the FUN Show. Here is what the Board of Governors have been working on: 

 

  • Motion by Governor Lyon, second by Governor Adkins, to engage the firm of Survey and Ballot Systems, using their proposed hybrid web and mail ballot option, to conduct the 2013 ANA election. Passed.
  • Motion by Governor Rottinghaus, second by Governor Ellis, to accept Wednesday through Sunday as the official show days of the World's Fair of Money. After discussion, President Hallenbeck tabled the motion, to be taken up at the New Orleans National Money Show board meeting. 
  • Motion by Vice President Ostromecki, second by Ellis, to confirm the Presidential appointment of Hollie Wieland, of Karp Neu Hanlon, P.C., as General Counsel.
