GPS NATIONAL PRESS RELEASE - May 20, 2009
The Germany Philatelic Society is pleased to announce its 60th Anniversary.
Since its formation in 1949 by a few collectors with an interest in German
philately, the ‘Germany Philatelic Society’ has grown to a membership
of nearly 1300, published twelve handbooks as well as its ‘gold-award’
winning monthly full-color publication, The German Postal Specialist.
Along with its annual conventions, the Germany Philatelic Society has
allied with the Germany-based ‘Association of German Philatelists’, having
a membership of nearly 60,000, to hold a bilateral American-German/German-American
Salon every three years in each other’s countries. This has proven successful
in promoting understanding & friendship between nations as well as an
exchange of exhibits, speakers and ideas in the promotion of philately
in general. This year’s ‘Salon’ took place in combination with the European
IBRA/German NAPOSTA Exhibitions at Essen, Germany. The next ‘American-German
Salon’ will take place at BALPEX 2012, Baltimore, Maryland, September
1-3, 2012. For more information about joining a community of dynamic collectors
