2007 Educational Symposium


Michael Walsh, C.N.A. Educational Chairman, is please to announce that at the 2007 Canadian Numismatic Association Convention in Niagara Falls will feature the largest and most diverse educational symposium in the past twenty years. Fourteen speakers are now confirmed to present papers on “Aspects of North American Numismatics”, Wednesday and Thursday, the 11th and 12th of July at the Niagara Falls Sheraton Fallsview Hotel and Convention Center.

If you are planning on attending the convention this summer, plan on arriving early and attending the Symposium.
