Paul Johnson, Jim Majoros and Mike "Steamer" Stanley have been appointed assistant national coordinators for the American Numismatic Association’s Club Representative Program. The announcement was made by National Coordinator Michael S. "Stan" Turrini on Aug. 2 at the Baltimore World’s Fair of Money®.
The Club Representative Program works directly with local, regional and national clubs to strengthen numismatics through the services offered by the ANA. The three assistant national coordinators will be instrumental in serving the needs of district and club representatives in the eastern United States, western United States, and Canada.
"Paul, Jim and Mike have proven themselves as members of the ANA, the Club Rep Program, and the numismatic community," Turrini said. "By using their enthusiasm and knowledge, I know our program will have greater success in energizing new collectors, attracting new ANA members, and assisting local clubs across our nation and in Canada."
