APS Summer Seminar on Philately 2009

The American Philatelic Society will be holding its 30th Annual APS Summer Seminar on Philately June 21-26.

Held in the education wing of the American Philatelic Center in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, Summer Seminar begins with a Sunday evening reception.

The remainder of the seminar week, Monday to Thursday, features 4½ hours daily of class time, plus a wide array of afternoon elective workshops, a student auction, a Buy/Sell/Trade Night, and two dinners.

Friday finishes off with a morning session with the staff of the American Philatelic Center, and one last opportunity to use the library, sales division, expertizing reference library, and other resources at the Center.

Each year, the staff of the American Philatelic Center selects a Distinguished Philatelist to share his or her unique insights and perspectives with Summer Seminar participants. This year, Cheryl Ganz, Chief Curator of Philately for the Smithsonian National Postal Museum, and a renowned Zeppelin mail scholar and exhibitor, has agreed to join us and share stories of interest.
