The annual Collectors Society Luncheon for Registry and Message Board participants was held on Saturday, January 8, at the FUN Show in Tampa, Florida.
Nearly 100 individuals attended the luncheon and each member received a specially encapsulated 2007 P Washington $1.
Scott Schechter, vice president, sales and marketing, welcomed the members and thanked them for their participation in the Registry and on the Message Boards. Mark Salzberg, chairman of NGC, discussed current topics in numismatics, service offerings and new launches in the past year. The luncheon rounded out with an informal Q&A session.
Schechter commented, "The luncheon is one of the best opportunities for us to sit down with collectors and talk about the hobby. We get a lot of helpful feedback and fresh ideas. It’s also a perfect way for us to say thanks to our members for their support and participation. We look forward to it every year." Videos of the luncheon will be posted on the website in the next week.
