The SPMC Board of Governors recently convened and released the following statement:
Education is a huge part of why we exist. We are rebranding our efforts toward this goal as Education, Research and Outreach (ERO), and reevaluating how we approach all these important aspects of the Society’s mission. One of our first steps was to recraft our mission statement, which now reads:
“The Society of Paper Money Collectors (SPMC) promotes the study and appreciation of paper money and related financial history. As a non-profit organization, the SPMC provides grants for research, publishes a bi-monthly journal, sponsors exhibits and lectures at regional and national venues, and supports education and outreach to the greater numismatic community.”
In the coming months we will be updating the ways and means by which we sponsor research and reach out to the collecting community.
