The event will be advertised as we get a little closer to the banquet date but I thought E-Sylum readers might appreciate knowing about sooner as there will be limited seating.
Sounds like a great affair. Here is the club's press release.
NENA Celebrates 75 th Anniversary
Q. David Bowers to Give Keynote Address
On Friday, November 11, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. the New England Numismatic
Association will hold a banquet and award ceremony to celebrate its founding as
the first regional numismatic organization in the United States. The evening’s
keynote speaker will be Q. David Bowers. Cost of the banquet is $55 and seating is
limited. It will be held at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Mr. Bowers, who is one of the best known American numismatists, is a past
president of the American Numismatic Association and the Professional
Numismatists Guild. He is chairman of Stack’s Bowers Galleries and the numismatic
director of Whitman Publishing, producers of many coin-related publications,
including the “Red Book” series. Mr. Bowers has authored over fifty numismatic
books, is an ANA Hall of Fame inductee and, in 1999, was recognized by Coinage
Magazine as one of only 18 “Numismatists of the Century.”
The celebration will conclude on Saturday, November 12 with the convention and
annual meeting in conjunction with the New Hampshire Coins and Currency Expo.
Events include a program for Young Numismatists with many giveaways,
presentations of numismatic topics for all ages, exhibits and an annual meeting
with board member elections.
On May 23, 1941, Shepard Pond convened a gathering of fifty dedicated New
England collectors at the City Club of Boston as the “First New England Numismatic
Conference.” Thus the New England Numismatic Association was born. Annual
meetings of the association began in 1946 and have continued to today.
The mission of the New England Numismatic Association is “to encourage and
develop the appreciation and understanding of numismatics and the collection of
coins and medals; to conduct courses of study in the art and science of
numismatics, to give and otherwise sponsor lectures, exhibitions, displays and
functions pertaining to the appreciation of the art and science of numismatics.”
