BNAPS Regional Groups

Throughout the United States and Canada, BNAPS members have formed regional groups (listed below) that meet one or more times a year. Meetings are much like mini-conventions, some lasting the weekend, during which strong philatelic friendships flourish, and both knowledge and material are exchanged.

If you love BNA stamps and covers and enjoy meeting others who share your enthusiasm, you are likely to find the benefits of a BNAPS regional group worth the Society dues alone.

The BNAPS Midwest Regional Group is planning to meet during Chicagopex 2018 which takes place between Nov. 16-18.

I hope it is early enough to get a first choice on a date if I can get enough members to commit to coming to the meeting. The meeting will be a show and tell.

Please email me and let me know of a preferred time and date for a meeting, and I will try to accommodate.
