BNAPS celebrates 75 years

The British North America Philatelic Society (BNAPS) is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, and President Eldon Godfrey marked the occasion in his “President’s Column” in the second quarter 2018 issue of BNA Topics.

Founded informally in 1943, the first regular meeting of BNAPS was held in New York on Nov. 24 of that year.

“As we celebrate, let us all congratulate our founders for their energy and foresight, their anticipation that BNAPS could and would become the pre-eminent source of discourse, education, and understanding of the philately of British North America,” writes Godfrey, who was inducted into the Order of the Beaver – the society’s fellowship – last year.

BNAPS, which currently boasts 1,011 active members, will be hosting its annual convention, BNAPEX, in Québec city on Sept. 21-23.
