RCNA appoints interim editor of CNJ

The Royal Canadian Numismatic Association (RCNA) has appointed Joseph (Joe) Kennedy as the interim editor of The Canadian Numismatic Journal (CNJ).

In a notice sent to its members, the RCNA stated, “The association is fortunate that the editor of the award-winning publication The Planchet, the club newsletter of the Edmonton Numismatic Society, has taken on the responsibilities and editorial duties of the CNJ editor.”

Kennedy, of St. Albert, Alta., will now lead the CNJ editorial staff. He succeeds Henry Nienhuis, who served as the CNJ editor for several years.

“My sincere apologies for the delay in receiving the CN Journal, but circumstances were beyond our control,” association president Bill O’Brien writes in his President’s Message published in the May issue of the CNJ.

The RCNA is urging its members to help “make the CNJ an outstanding publication” by providing the new editor with “interesting articles, short stories, or other information that members will want to read.” Members can submit research material to editor@rcna.ca. Contributions, including club news and photos, are also welcome.

The May issue of the Journal, featuring extensive details on the RCNA’s upcoming convention in Boucherville, Que., was released for distribution in mid-May.
