Candidate for Governor: Scott Rottinghaus
New London, CT
After serving on the ANA Board for the past four years, I am running for re-election to use this experience to bring strength and stability to our organization. The ANA should be the world's preeminent numismatic organization and serve as a voice for collectors and dealers alike. This requires governing the ANA with integrity and promoting open communication with our membership. I have the business experience, problem-solving skills and open-mindedness to guide the ANA.
Education is a core mission of the ANA. We are working to enhance our seminars and conventions. Now, for further outreach, we need an improved presence on the Internet. Increased access to our Library and Museum collections will further enhance numismatic knowledge. Having worked hard to promote the hobby to young numismatists, I will endeavor to find better ways to make numismatics attractive to young professionals.
Originally a farm boy from Kansas, I now live in Connecticut with my wife and children. I am a life member of the ANA, having joined in 1985. Since then, I have become increasingly involved with the ANA, winning Outstanding Young Numismatist in 1988, YN Best-of-Show Exhibit in 1991, and the Glenn Smedley Memorial Award in 2009. I have authored 36 numismatic articles, including nine for The Numismatist. I teach a class on Roman Republican coins at the Summer Seminar, which I have been attending since 1987.
A physician educated at the University of Cambridge and the Mayo Clinic, I manage clinical trials as a senior director at Pfizer.
I am also on the faculty at the Yale School of Medicine, where I care for patients at the VA hospital. Throughout my career, I have grounded myself in the numismatic community. As a longtime collector of ancient coins and the father of three young children, I am deeply and personally interested in the future of our hobby.
I have brought a fresh outlook to the ANA during my time on the Board. I endeavor to be approachable and accessible to all ANA members. I am full of energy and enthusiasm, and I look forward to continuing my work for the ANA.
