ANA EXHIBIT JUDGES TO SEEK CERTIFICATION IN
CHICAGO

      To maintain a corps of qualified judges who support the
high standards of exhibit competition, the American Numismatic
Association (ANA) sponsors the Judges' Familiarization and
Certification Program (JFCP).
      Those who satisfactorily complete the training are certified
as ANA judges.  Exhibitors who wish to learn more about the
judging process also are invited to participate.
      Supervised by ANA Chief Judge Joseph E. Boling, this
year's three-part program will be offered in conjunction with the
ANA's 1999 World's Fair of Money in the Chicago suburb of
Rosemont, August 11-15.  The first session, scheduled for 10:30
a.m. on Wednesday, August 11, is a seminar during which
applicants receive practice judging sheets.  At the second session,
held at 4 p.m. on Friday, August 13, applicants turn in the sheets
for professional evaluation by program staff, while at 4 p.m. on
Saturday, August 14, they receive the completed evaluations and
notification of the results.
      Those wishing to attend the Judges' Familiarization and
Certification Program at the ANA convention in Chicago should
contact Joseph Boling at P.O. Box 4718, Federal Way, WA
