BNAPS began publishing its journal, BNA Topics, in 1944. It contained a mix of articles on BNA philately and reports on Society activities. Fast forward to 1993 when BNAPS decided to remove the Society activities from Topics, in favour of a new publication, BNA PortraitS. Topics would be devoted to research and tutorial articles, and BNA PortraitS would concentrate on the social side of BNAPS. Both publications appeared on a quarterly schedule.
Among the features found in BNA PortraitS were the President's Report, the Secretary's Report, news about the activities of the study and regional groups, BNAPEX convention information, annual reports of officials, election proceedings, new book publications, etc. The newsletter provides an indispensable historical record of the Society's activities during the time it was published.
The first issue of BNA PortraitS was dated Sept.-Dec. 1993. Charles J. G. Verge was the editor. The newsletter saw 65 issues, the last being Vol. 16, No. 4, Oct.-Dec. 2009. BNAPS retired BNA PortraitS to cut operating costs. Of the material published in the newsletter, the annual reports of officials and the minutes of the Board of Directors meeting and the Annual General Meeting are published on the BNAPS website. Most of the rest was folded back into BNA Topics.
