Annual Meeting Scheduled For MILCOPEX 2016

Our society will hold its annual meeting at MILCOPEX 2016 on September 16-17, 2016. We have society meetings and events scheduled for Friday, September 16th.  One very interesting talk already announced is Ken Nilsestuen’s presentation on “Algerian Stamped Postal History”.  Other talks are being arranged and will be posted here as soon as information is available.  We are also planning a Friday night dinner at a nearby restaurant – with details coming soon.

There are always several interesting F&C exhibits at the annual meeting, and this year includes the following exhibits:

French Consular Postal Service in Jerusalem 1948 – 1949

French Equitorial Africa: Issues of 1936-1946

The French Colonies General Issues: The Eagle Era

French Sudan & Niger

We shared the booth with a couple of other societies.  Tom Broadhead spent quite a bit of time at our booth as did Ralph DeBoard and Larry Gardner.
