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.
