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.

Golden Horseshoe

Time : 2PM EDT

The Golden Horseshoe Regional Group will hold a Virtual Zoom meeting on Saturday 4 December at 1400 EDT. The meeting requires an invitation link which will be provided via email from the Golden Horseshoe Group.

There will be some announcements, and you will be able to add any of your own, just by speaking up at the appropriate time.

Presentation
Topic: Behind The Curtain with Registered Mail

If there is enough time, there will be an opportunity for "show and tell". If you have something you'd like to share, make a digital copy of your item and have it open on your computer desktop before the meeting begins. When it is your turn to show your item, just click on the button at the bottom of the Zoom screen that says, "Share Screen", and then select your item - your item will appear and you can speak about it.

We hope to "see" as many of you as possible, and we hope you'll give us your feedback about the meeting afterwards.

A device with camera and speakers is best such as a computer, laptop, tablet or even smartphone can be used with the meeting, but a camera is not necessary to view or participate in the meeting.
