Coronavirus (COVID-19) Impact Statement

Updated: August 25, 2020

Activities around Western New York have begun to reopen. As always, our highest concern is for the safety of our members and guests at our coin shows and club meetings. The Knights have notified The BNA that their facility will be reopened sometime during Phase 4. However, certain restrictions remain in place that affect the BNA club meetings and coin shows. Please scroll down to see a full list of cancellations. During this time of unprecedented uncertainty, we ask for your understanding and consideration as we try to ensure the safety of all individuals.

Please be aware that the global pandemic involving the coronavirus (COVID-19) is presenting us with a rapidly changing environment. The BNA will cooperate with all directives issued by federal, state, and local governments. Additionally, we will adhere to the directives of our host organization, The Knights. Therefore, our meetings and coin shows may be canceled at the last minute. Additionally, the format and operation of any club function may be changed in order to comply with these restrictions and directives. Please realize that these circumstances are beyond the scope of our control. The BNA Officers and Board of Directors are working hard to develop a solution that allows us to resume operations in a controlled and safe environment.

For the Remainder of 2020

Updated: August 25, 2020

The remaining BNA Coin Club meetings scheduled for 2020 have been canceled. The officers and the Board Of Directors have been working diligently with our host organization to coordinate a mutually agreed-upon date and time that will meet all the requirements of state and local governments to adhere to the restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic. However, the board feels that the risk to our members and guests is too great to be able to gather safely at this time.

Sat. September 19 and
Sun. September 20

The BNA Fall Convention originally scheduled for Sat. September 19 and Sun. September 20 at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Cheektowaga, New York has officially been canceled. Due to the situation with COVID-19 The officers and Board Of Directors feel that the organization cannot provide a safe environment for dealers and guests.

For the Remainder of 2020

All BNA Coin Shows and Bourses for the remainder of 2020 have been canceled. After intense discussion, the officers and Board Of Directors have decided that the risk to dealers, members, and the general public is too great to continue coin shows this year. Additionally, in order to comply with state and local regulations, the club would dramatically have to change the format of our coin shows. This would result in a negative financial impact on the organization.
