ACCLA's January meeting was brought to order by outgoing President Ken Friedman at 1:34 PM. Treasurer Barry Rightman gave the Treasurer's report. Secretary Michael Connor reported on the web site and announced we now have 1,298 followers on facebook. Vice-President Roger Burry reviewed upcoming meeting programs. Merrill Gibson has arranged for a Club table at the upcoming Long Beach Show. A motion was proposed, seconded and passed to reimburse Merrill for copying charges for brochures for the Show.  

President  Friedman convened a brief Board Meeting to consider a motion to approve of all actions undertaken for ACCLA by Officers and Board Members over the prior year. Their being a quorum of Board Members present, the motion was approved on a unanimous vote.

President Friedman then called for the installation of the newly elected Officers and Board, and turned over the gavel to incoming President Betty Eiseman. 

President Eiseman's first act was to invite all present to partake in the Annual Holiday banquet. Lots of good food was enjoyed by all.

After the banquet, an auction was held under the auspices of Joe Tooma. The auction featured some 39 lots with items to please all types and tastes. Joe is planning on having the next auction in May or so.

The final activity of the day was voting for the recipient of the Annual Barbara Rightman Award for the best presentation of the year. This year's vote produced a tie, with joint winners of the award being Ken Friedman and Barry Rightman. Our hearty congratulations to both winners!

An Elis stater issued in 340 BCE for the 110th Olympiad is expected to bring $30,000 at the Feb 14 Pre-Long Beach auction.

The latest Explorator.
