Coin club help
The ANA is located in Colorado.6 years ago
I would love to live so close to the ANA!
You have a few options for your area when it comes to selecting a coin club. Click on the "Find A Club" button on the top of the homepage. Then, just enter "Colorado" for the state and press enter. You'll see a few listings for the Denver and surrounding (north) areas. Of course, you're always welcome to come to one of our Colorado Springs meetings, both the CS Coin Club and CS Numismatic Society. Both clubs meet at a police station not too far off I-25 just SW of the downtown area.6 years ago
I'm the president of the Glendale Coin Club in Southern California. We give incentive prizes (usually an ounce of silver) to any of our members who present a program to our club. It's a good way to get our members to get up and speak for a bit and it's always best to have a current member present as you get to know what your fellow club members are interested in.
When we can't get a speaker from inside the club or an outside speaker to come in, we sometimes will rent a DVD from the ANA Library... I'll be doing that in about 15 minutes for our next meeting in fact! There are many DVDs available and they are free to borrow for ANA members (just have to pay postage).

For local club leaders that need help with programs.
Go to the ANA Home page-->select "COMMUNITY"-->select "ANA CLUBS"--> select "ACTIVITIES FOR CLUBS.
There you will find a number of program presentation, quizzes and vignettes ready for anyone to present. Go ahead and use them. That is what they are there for.
Maybe a local historical group or p[erson.5 years ago
Having a coin expert is always great but it is important to remember
that history and social studies plays an important part in our coins and
how we use them and why they where made.
Since you are in the Colorado
area, have you ever thought about bringing in a mining expert.
Why limit your search. Use some basic technology and enjoy presenters from across the US. Skype and other tools allow presenters to present to groups. All you need is a decent internet connection, a large scree or projector and laptop. Maybe a Bluetooth portable speaker.
