First NNP Symposium this August

The Newman Numismatic Portal (NNP), operating out of Washington University in St. Louis, Miss., recently unveiled its plans for the first NNP Symposium.

Billed by organizers as “an online gathering of the numismatic community,” the first of these free biannual events will be held on Aug. 28-30. Organizers are hoping to offer an array of numismatic content, including club meetings, individual presentations and panel discussions, through Zoom.

“While spurred by the COVID-19 epidemic, the NNP Symposium concept addresses other issues related to attendance at existing trade events,” according to a statement on the event’s website. “Participants may not always be able to travel to conventions or may wish to attend only limited portions of a given event. The NNP Symposium reduces these barriers to entry and makes attendance as simple as pulling up a screen on a laptop, mobile or smart TV.”

Organizers are inviting numismatic organizations and individual presenters, including dealers, to register for a meeting slot at Event staff will train presenters and attendees before the event and handle any technical issues during each session.
