ANA EXHIBIT POLICY CHANGES PROPOSED

American Numismatic Association chief judge Joe Boling writes:
"There are several documents of interest to exhibitors and judges
posted on the ANA web site as materials for use by the board at
its meetings in Denver. See particularly the ANA exhibit committee
report."  Full Story

[The Numismatic Bibliomania Society sponsored the Numismatic
Literature exhibit category, Class 22.  The exhibit history document
shows that over the past ten summer conventions the average number
of exhibits entered in class 22 is 2.5, with a range of 1 to 4
exhibits.  The number of cases per exhibit ranges from 1 to 20 with
an average of 11.1 cases.

The report notes that "The Committee spent a significant amount of
time and effort ... attempting to understand if the present twenty-five
exhibit classifications could or should be condensed to a more manageable
number."  The committee is recommending consolidating down to 17 classes.
The numismatic literature classification would be unaffected and become
the new class 15.

The committee also makes recommendations regarding exhibit endowments.
NBS raised thousands of dollars to endow the exhibit category and the
committee recommends that "Endowments should be treated as restricted
use gifts, with all interest from endowments being used exclusively for
the funding of annual awards."   Luckily, because the literature category
would be untouched, NBS needn't sort out with the ANA how to reallocate
its endowment fund.

If bibliophiles have any questions or comments on the proposed changes,
send them to me for publication in The E-Sylum (many of the exhibit
committee members are readers) or see them in person if you're at the
convention in Denver.  The Exhibits Chair is Wendell Wolka, and other
members are Joe Boling, Sam Deep, John Eshbach, Katie Heinrich, Gene
Hynds, Jerry Kochel, and Fred Schwan. -Editor]
