Washington, D.C. — December 27, 2000 – Voice your opinion on Commemorative Coin Program Themes for 2005 and beyond at the Citizens Commemorative Coin Advisory Committee’s new website starting today. Simply fill out the survey at www.cccaconline.org
Results of the survey and comments from visitors to the site will be used to guide the CCCAC toward recommendations for commemorative coin issues for 2005 and the years to follow. In addition to interactive dialogue with the Committee will be posting important information about the status of commemorative coin programs and other issues.
The Committee announced the opening of its website in its newly published Annual Report to Congress for 2000, also posted on the new website. Visitors to the site are also invited by the Committee to e–mail questions, opinions, and suggestions at any time to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We are putting a premium on open communication with our stakeholders,” said CCCAC Chair Elsie Sterling Howard. “We need to know what coin collectors are thinking. Sales of commemorative coins over the past 18 years have raised more than $409 million for many great causes, and we believe strongly that collectors deserve a forum where their voice can be clearly heard.”
The Committee also will continue to reach out to the public at coin shows, through the numismatic press, and at American Numismatic Association Conventions.
Created under Title II of Public Law 102–390, the primary purpose of the Citizens Commemorative Coin Advisory Committee is to annually recommend to Congress the events, persons or places to be commemorated by the issue of commemorative coins in each of the next five calendar years.
