The Benefits of Membership

Annual Conventions

The annual convention is held in various parts of the country in June each year featuring a new member orientation, guest speakers, informative seminars and visits to prominent collections of local members. The convention features an auction of usually 400+ quality still banks. All (primary) members will be presented a  specifically manufactured convention bank or souvenir. Historically  these become most collectable in their own right. The majority of members attending offer banks for sale or trade. A larger selection of antique still banks will not be viewed or offered anywhere in the world annually!  Past conventions have been in New Orleans, Gettysburg, Orlando, Kansas City Mo., Dayton Oh., Chicago Il, and Detroit, Mi. The convention in 2015 will be in State College Pa.
