Boston 2026 has appointed two social media chairs as the show’s organizing committee “continues to emphasize the importance of its online media presence,” according to a recent statement from the group.
Alyssa Baumgardner and Alison Sullivan, both of whom work with Charles Epting at H. R. Harmer Fine Stamp Auctions in New York, have jointly agreed to take on the volunteer online promotional position. Both young philatelists graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with bachelor’s degrees in 2019 and are account managers with Harmer. Baumgardner additionally takes on Harmer’s marketing responsibilities while Sullivan heads up office operations.
“Both of these talented ladies bring a wealth of business and personal online experience to us that will augment our efforts in reaching all demographics in support of the exhibition,” said Boston 2026 President Yamil Kouri.
Last month, organizers announced YouTube sensation Graham Beck, the host of the Exploring Stamps podcast, joined the committee as an online philatelic advisor.
The Boston 2026 World Expo, the next once-in-a-decade international show held in the United States, will take place in Boston on May 23-30, 2026.
