Longtime volunteer Richard Jozefiak has declared his candidacy for a seat on the American Numismatic Association board of governors in the 2013 election.
The Madison, Ala., hobbyist said he has spent 20 years working on behalf of the ANA at the local, state and national levels.
He said he has served as a club representative, district delegate, regional coordinator and district representative in Alabama, Florida and Virginia and has been the current ANA district representative for Alabama since 2006.
“I will work to continue the efforts and commitment to bring the ANA to state and regional coin shows, continue the outreach to members, work to increase numismatic educational opportunities and support the rotation of the World’s Fair of Money Convention to different areas of the country,” Jozefiak said on Nov. 12.
“I am committed to the ANA vision of being: ‘The most respected, influential, and beneficial numismatic association focused on education, fellowship and public service.’”
Jozefiak said his professional background is in project management and project engineering. This has taken him around the country and allowed him to visit numerous club meetings and coin shows.
He is a numismatic writer, exhibitor and ANA Summer Seminar class instructor on the topic of exonumia.
He is recipient of the ANA’s Medal of Merit (2011), Glenn Smedley Memorial Award (2005), Century Award (for member recruitment, 2011), Outstanding District Representative (2010, 2009), ANA Presidential Award (2004), and Outstanding Regional Coordinator Award (2004).
The ANA board has seven governors, a vice president and a president.
