NAAV alumni

Question: Hi, Clinton. I found this among my Dad's papers. He passed away many years ago. Can you tell from the Membership Number (9349) about what year this certificate was issued? Thanks. Charles Moody

Answer: Unfortunately, I cannot give you an accurate date as this certificate was issued in the Maher/NAAV "BC" era ("Before Computer"). But from the certificate design I can tell you it was probably during the early 1970s. Does that sound about right to you? Maybe someone reading this might still have a dated NAAV membership card with a membership number close to that of your Dad's. It's a long shot, but we can ask. Seeing this certificate certainly stirs nostalgic memories for me. Thanks for sharing. Mr. D.

    Yes, that's about right. I received mine, that looked just like this one, in 1978.

    Mr. D, I'm William C. Moody's grandson, Eric. My dad sent you the certificate. I was curious, who is the "Adelia" that signed as the Membership Secretary? cheers, e.m.m.
