The next meeting of the Ancient Coin Club of Los Angeles will take place Sunday October 11, 2016 in the Community Room at the Sherman Oaks Galleria starting at 1:00 PM. The Sherman Oaks Galleria is located northwest of the intersection of the Ventura and San Diego Freeways at 15301 Ventura Blvd. (at Sepulveda Blvd.), in Sherman Oaks. Park in the Galleria parking lot (we validate your parking so parking is free for meeting attendees). The Community Room is located on Level 1 of the rotunda, one floor below the cinema. 

The October 11 meeting will feature a presentation by Ken Friedman titled Lucius Appuleius Saturninus and the Roman Constitution. Ken will address the life and coins of the moneyer Lucius Apuleius Saturninus and will discuss the Roman political state and the cursus honorum - the sequential order of public offices taken by aspiring politicians in the Roman Republic and the early Empire.

LAST MEETING

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.

BOARD MEETING

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.
