From the Secretary - Jerry Lebo

Fall - 2014

As they might say at the race track, I'm turning into the home stretch. After more than 20 years in the job, I'll be stepping down as secretary effective March 31 of 2015. Our governing board has named Patricia Foley to replace me, effective April 1.

Patricia will serve as both secretary and bourse chairman, as I did for a number of years before stepping down from the bourse job.

In a future column I might reminisce a bit about my tenure on the CSNS board.

Speaking of stepping down, I was sorry to hear that Mitch Ernst has resigned as a CSNS governor. Mitch continues to be active in Nebraska numismatics. Best to you, Mitch.

Meanwhile, back to the matter of the dues increases. These go into effect Jan. 1.

Regular dues increase from $10 annually to $15. Life membership for individuals will be $250, up from $200. Member clubs will pay $25 a year or $300 for a life membership (for clubs within the United States). Individuals living outside the United States will pay $30 per year. YN dues will be $5, up from $3.

Postponed until the next meeting is the associate dues schedule.

Jerry Lebo

Secretary
