The October 11 meeting will feature a presentation by Ken Friedman titled Lucius Appuleius Saturninus and the Roman Constitution.

ACCLA's September 2016 meeting was called to order by President Ken Friedman at 1:47 PM. Treasurer Barry Rightman reported that the Club's Treasury continues to grow. Secretary Mike Connor reported that we now have 1,194 page likes on facebook. This was followed by an extensive discussion of the ANA Show.
The presentation at the September meeting featured a Coin Photography Seminar moderated by Bob Lattanzi with displays and talks by panelists Michael Connor, Bob Effler, and Merrill Gibson. Judging by the many questions asked and the participation of almost all the meeting attendees in the discussions, it was a well received and very useful seminar.
A meeting of the ACCLA Board of Directors was convened on the evening of September 28, 2016. Seven members attended so a quorum was present. The meeting focused on the Club's upcoming November 2016 meeting which marks the 50th Anniversary of the Club's first meeting in November, 1966.
The Board approved the anniversary meeting agenda, agreed to partially subsidize lunch (from the El Torito Grill), and approved the expenditure of funds for designing and printing Club T-shirts to be sold at the anniversary meeting. The Board also voted to meet more frequently so that administrative actions can be dealt with without having to spend time on these at the Club's monthly meetings. The Board thanks President Friedman for his splendid hospitality.
