Outreach/Local Transportation Committee, of the Local Organizing Committees for the American Numismatic Association 2011 Anniversary Convention

Stephens Convention Center (Rosemont, suburban Chicago) August 16-20, 2011

Outreach/Local Transportation Committee Chairman Elliott Kreiter

Welcome to the main page for the Outreach/Local Transportation Committee of the 2011 ANA Anniversary Convention. Please bookmark this page, and return often to see our progress.

One problem that held down attendance at the 2009 Los Angeles convention was that “the convention was held in a remote area and parking there was very expensive.” Sound familiar? This could describe the Stephens Center. The Outreach/Local Transportation Committee will be visiting local (and not-so-local) clubs, boosting the convention, explaining the situation, and urging them to organize car pools or even charter vans (not at ANA expense, however) to minimize parking costs. The admission charge for non-ANA members will be mentioned too, and prospective attendees advised to join early to avoid the lines at the admission booths. Public transportation is available for the Stephens Center, and this committee will get the word out on that.
