Alan Herbert has thrown his hat in the ring in next year’s election for the American Numismatic Association board of governors.
A veteran of three terms as an American Numismatic Association governor, if elected this would be a fourth term of five allowed by ANA bylaws.
Herbert is currently serving out the term of Radford Stearns, who was elected in 2007, but who died in August 2008.
He cited his record in his decision to run, indicating that he has been serving the hobby and collectors for more than four decades, leading up to his service on the ANA board of governors, where he is active in both the Membership Committee and the IT Committee.
“My skills as a writer and professional photographer have benefited the hobby and over the years I have influenced many people to become collectors,” he says.“The ANA is facing rough weather as the country’s economy staggers under the weight of failing banks and a crashing stock market. We who are willing to work, willing to create and carry out fresh ideas and who have the best interests of the ANA and its members at heart need to stand up and be counted. It is with that purpose that I offer my services to aid the ANA in any way possible.”
