Carter announces candidacy for APS president

Dr. Nicholas G. Carter of Bethesda, Maryland, the American Philatelic Society's Treasurer and member of the Board of Directors since 2003, has thrown his hat into the ring as a candidate for APS president. The election will take place in early 2007 with the term running for two years.

A graduate of both Harvard and MIT, Carter's 37 year career as an international economist and management specialist took him to many parts of the world, especially throughout Africa, the Middle East and Asia. He retired from a senior position with The World Bank in 1998 after 32 years of service, and then spent 5 years as an independent consultant.

Carter is a 40 year member of the APS and a third-generation stamp collector. His grandfather was Postmaster of The Gambia in West Africa. He is a Fellow of the Royal Philatelic Society, London, and belongs to a number of APS affiliates, including the West Africa Study Circle, United States Stamp Society, The Classics Society, the Collectors Club of New York, the American First Day Cover Society and the Great Britain Collector's Club and a variety of other societies.
