In early November UPMA launched our first television ad. While we now have members in every state, the ad will be played on cable tv in Utah. We may also use the same ad on other online platforms in order to reach a wider audience. We continue to grow.
Every year the United Precious Metals Association holds a summit that is open to the membership to elect board members and discuss key issues surrounding legal tender gold and silver. Last year Rep. Ken Ivory announced legislation in Utah, the year before Overstock Chairman Jonathan Johnson spoke at the event. These speeches can be seen on the website.
This year Arizona Rep. Mark Finchem will be our keynote speaker, Rep. Finchem is currently one of the UPMA board members and was able to successfully sponsor and help pass legislation in Arizona. The new law removes capital gains taxes from the sale of gold and silver within the state among other things similar to the Utah Legal Tender Act of 2011.
As of yet a date has not been set for the 2017 annual summit.
