ONA seeking convention chair

The Ontario Numismatic Association (ONA) is looking to fill a few key roles leading up to its election, which begins this fall with a call for nominations for the association’s executive.

The ONA has a four-person elected executive committee, which includes the president, two vice-presidents and the ex-officio immediate past president. There are also two appointed executive positions, secretary and treasurer, plus five appointed committee chairs. The election results will be affirmed at the ONA’s next annual general meeting in spring 2021.

In the meantime, the ONA is also seeking a new convention chair to take the reins from Robb McPherson and his wife Lisa effective next year.

“We will complete the planning and running of the 2021 annual convention in Burlington,” the McPhersons said in a joint statement this May. “We need someone to take over in the fall of 2021 as the new convention chairperson looking after the 2022 venue booking.”

Robb, who will continue serving as the treasurer for both the ONA and its convention, has been the convention chair for a decade while Lisa has served as co-chair in recent years.

Anyone interested in serving as the ONA convention chair is invited to contact Robb at 1-519-577-7206 or treasurer@the-ona.ca.
