WELCOME PARTY. The welcome party, which has become one of the highlights of the event, will be held Thursday at 5pm on the pool area patio just outside the convention rooms. Appetizers will be served, courtesy of Heritage Auctions, and the bar will be open for you to purchase beverages of your choice. Be sure to arrive in time for the welcome party!

SILENT AUCTION. The silent auction consists of donations of coins, currency, books and other items from our members and supporters to raise funds for the organization.  The silent auction has been a resounding success and is a major source of income for the Association. Last year 25 donated items realized over $4,000 for the organization. Please donate to this worthy cause.

AWARDS CEREMONY. Awards will be presented during the Welcome Party to various members of the organization for their contributions during 2018.

COUNTERFEIT DETECTION SEMINAR. Our most popular seminar has been the one on counterfeit detection, which is presented by some of the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, including Kent Ponterio, Dan Sedwick, and Mike Dunigan. This seminar will be continued each year covering new areas of counterfeit detection.

BOOK SALE. We have received donations of books and auction catalogs from generous members and will be setting up a large table to sell these items at very reasonable prices which will benefit the Association. If you have excess books and auction catalogs in your library that you would like to donate, please send them to me at my office address below.

EXHIBITS. We have room for six displays on the convention floor.  If you are interested in setting up a display, give me a call. Once again, we will be judging and giving out awards for the best displays.

LOCAL ACTIVITIES. The hotel is in Scottsdale close to a huge selection of restaurants, golf courses and shopping.  Other nearby activities include everything from casinos to indoor skydiving and an aquarium.

HOTEL RESERVATIONS. We have arranged a special room rate at the Resort of $179 per night. The easiest way to make a reservation is to go to usmex.org and follow the links. You can make your reservations now and I strongly urge you not to wait. Last year, room rates were much higher after our block sold out.

ADMISSION. Admission to the convention will be free to members, $10 to non-members and free to all family members and children under 15.
