The Anti-Counterfeiting Educational Foundation (ACEF) has elected a new board of governors whose term began on January 1. The officers include John Albanese (president), Barry Stuppler (vice president), Beth Deisher (secretary), and Ian Russell (treasurer), along with nine directors: Don Bonser, John Dannreuther, Steve Ivy, David McCarthy, Mary Sauvain, Ute Wartenberg Kagan, Fred Weinberg, Reid Wolf, and Jack Young.

“Our new board is committed to revitalizing the foundation’s mission, which is to assist and provide educational training to law enforcement at all levels who are seeking to combat the flow of counterfeit coins and paper money entering the United States as well as to alert dealers, collectors, and investors in the numismatic marketplace of the deceptive means counterfeiters are employing to entice them to unknowingly purchase fakes,” says Albanese. “ACEF can’t do this alone. We need the numismatic community’s support. Our work is entirely funded by donations.”
