NBS CONVENTION MEETING IDEAS

Last week, NBS President Pete Smith asked for some suggestions
for our organization's annual meeting at the American Numismatic
Association summer convention.  Len Augsberger writes: "How about
a research-oriented "networking" event?  Everyone gets 60 seconds
(someone should bring a timer with a loud alarm!) to talk about
what they are researching, then the audience gets an equal amount
to time to suggest research resources and other approaches.  If
someone goes overtime they can network more afterwards.  Or we
could have an auction for additional audience time, to raise NBS
funds.  It would be a good way for everyone to find out what's
out there and what everyone else is doing.

You could also pre-announce a research topic in The E-sylum and
have a trivia contest on that subject at the meeting.  "History
of the National Numismatic Collection" comes to mind, but only
because I am doing a bunch of reading about that right now.
Perhaps the topic could be relevant to the meeting site.  The
prize could be the right to pick the topic of next year's contest."
