The following is a Press Release from the National Coin & Bullion Association (NCBA) announcing that is replacing its current consumer level membership with the new Concern Collections Coaltion. Designed for the numismatic community who’s primary source of income is not generated from sales of numismatic materials, the Concerned Collectors Coalition will provide a voice at the federal and state legislator level on numismatic issues.
The National Coin & Bullion Association is replacing our Consumer Patron-level membership with a new, FREE membership dedicated to collectors. The Concerned Collectors Coalition is specifically for individuals whose primary source of income is not generated by the sale of numismatic materials. Concerned Collectors Coalition members receive a membership certificate and the association’s quarterly digital newsletter, Member News. A member of the Concerned Collectors Coalition does not have membership voting rights.
To support NCBA’s work advocating for the numismatic community, Concerned Collectors Coalition members will need to identify their federal and state legislators as part of the registration process. One of the first steps in convincing federal and state legislators to support our initiatives is finding out who represents our members. This allows NCBA and our lobbyists to focus efforts on legislators whose constituents will be directly impacted by the initiatives, so that we can contact them about supporting our efforts when the time comes. It will also allow our lobbyists to create a clear picture of where these key legislators stand on issues related to our initiatives and which committees they serve on before we reach out to them.
Our Concerned Collectors Coalition members will be an important voice in the fight for our initiatives and will be called upon to help support our work in the state and federal legislatures. If you appreciate having access to a fair market for coins and bullion, you benefit from the work we do. The membership is free, but donations are vital to our efforts. You can still contribute $25, $50, $100—or more—to support our initiatives and help shape the future of our numismatic community. CLICK HERE to contribute.
Current Consumer Patron members have been automatically registered as Concerned Collectors Coalition members. Each member’s profile should be updated to include the names of their federal and state legislators. Profiles may be updated at any time via the NCBA website’s “Member Login” button. If you do not know your password, there is a link on the log-in screen to retrieve it. CLICK HERE to find your legislators.
Help us make this coalition a powerful voice for the numismatic community! Collectors, join NCBA as a Concerned Collectors Coalition member for FREE and join the fight in our initiatives. Again, if you appreciate having access to a fair market for coins and bullion, you benefit from the work we do. And please contribute $25, $50, $100, or more, to support our initiatives and help shape the future of our numismatic community.
