American Numismatic Association (ANA) Governor Steve Ellsworth recently announced his candidacy for president of the 127-year-old club.
A retired U.S. Army colonel who was the official ANA delegate at this year’s Royal Canadian Numismatic Association Convention, Ellsworth has served for the last three years as a governor of the ANA. In this role, he served on ANA committees for budget, marketing, finance, audit and development, of which he was chairman.
“If elected I will continue the terrific efforts of Presidents Garrett and Adkins’ instrumental work towards the long-term sustainability of our ANA, creative educational programs, and world outreach for our World’s Fair of Money,” said Ellsworth, whose past military assignments include commander of the U.S. Army’s Special Forces, an overseas joint service command and special assistant to the chief of staff of the U.S. Army.
“The world and our hobby are changing at warp speed and we will have to work even harder to remain a relevant force in the world of money collecting and our collectors.”

Next year, the terms of all nine ANA officers will expire. Those elected will be installed at the ANA’s 128th anniversary Convention in Chicago next August and will compose the board for the next two years.
ANA members with voting privileges can nominate candidates for the ANA board. Nominations must be in writing and received by March 1.
By June 1, ballots will be sent by the ANA’s independent auditing firm to all members entitled to vote. Completed ballots must be received by July 1.
The independent auditing firm will deliver a report of votes cast for each candidate by July 15.
At least 10 days prior to the Aug. 13 opening of the anniversary convention, the ANA’s executive director will announce the election results.
