|SPECIAL MEETING OF ESC AT WASHINGTON 2006|
On Wednesday, 31 May 2006, twenty-three members and guests got together for an informal special meeting at the Washington 2006 international stamp show. Egypt,
United Kingdom, United States, Canada and Finland were among the countries represented. The meeting opened with an announcement that the Circle had been approved as
an affiliate of the American Philatelic Society. Hopefully, this will aid in the recruitment of new members. Information about ESC will be made available on the APS
web site and mention will be made in The American Philatelist from time to time.
We reviewed the report of the annual general meeting, followed by a request for articles for the QC, a notification about the proposed trip to Cairo this fall for the Philatelic Society of Egypt's 75th anniversary, and a brief discussion of costs of publication and postage of the QC for overseas members. In addition, the President of the PSE said a few words about the trip and its philatelic journal.
This was followed by each person introducing him or herself. A general review of the increase of fakes and fraudulent material over the last ten years ensued. The meeting ended in a photograph session and a general feeling that it was good to see familiar faces and to meet new philatelic friends.
