Thomas G. Hallenbeck
for Vice President
I’m excited to be running for the office of pice president of the world’s greatest coin club, the American Numismatic Association. I believe that coin collecting is fun, and the ANA should be fun also. We need to keep the lines of communication open, and all of its elected officers should respond quickly and completely to its members questions and suggestions.
I first joined the ANA back in 1974 as a Young Numismatist and later converted to a life member. I started as a student and am now an instructor at the Summer Seminar held here in Colorado Springs, just two blocks from my coin store. I believing in giving back to the ANA, an organization that gave so much to me. I always try to keep in mind that coin collecting is a hobby, a fun hobby but still a hobby. As long as its leaders always keep the members in mind then the ANA will continue to prosper. Thanks for your vote.
