Former American Numismatic Association curator Larry Lee had a guest commentary in the February 13 issue of Coin World about organizational changes at the ANA under former Executive Director Cipoletti. Check it out. It's an eye-opening piece, and one that should generate some serious "what do we what to be when we grow up" discussions among thoughtful officers of the organization.
What I find is that most people confuse the ANA organization, its structure and goals and board members and all of their "stuff," with the ANA Money Museum, as if they were one and the same. If only they were. One is the dog. One is the tail. The problem is that for many years the tail has been wagging the dog.
My primary purpose is to offer a positive suggestion on how the ANA could change its organizational structure in such a way that it could avoid many of the problems and issues that now plague it and that would allow the ANA Money Museum to become the dog and not the rump tail of the organization.
