Foster Miller to chair Americover 2019

Foster Miller, of Maryland, will chair Americover 2019, the American First Day Cover Society’s (AFDCS) annual show, convention and celebration of first-day covers.

Miller previously handled scheduling for the Americover shows.

Americover 2019 will be held July 26-28 at the Renaissance Saint Louis Airport Hotel. The official Americover room rate is $104 USD, and the show will again feature exhibits, dealers, cachetmakers, auctions, meetings, seminars and social functions.

The appointment was announced by AFDCS President Lloyd de Vries, who also appointed Phil Sager, also of Maryland, as bourse promoter as well as a member of the convention planning committee for Americover 2019.

Chris Lazaroff, who chaired the annual AFDCS show from 2015 through 2018, will remain on the committee. Other members are Pete McClure, of Iowa, who handles registration, and AFDCS executive secretary Doug Kelsey. De Vries is an ex officio member of the committee.


Miller is also a member of the AFDCS board of directors and serves on the executive committee as membership chair. He has attended every Americover since the show began in 1993 and every AFDCS convention dating back to 1986.

Sager is a long-time cover dealer under the trade name “Geezer’s Tweezers.”

Lazaroff is immediate past president of the AFDCS.

Kelsey is also an elected member of the board.
