VISITING SPEAKER PROGRAM

  Australian Philatelic Federation Visiting Speaker Program

The APF encourages visiting speakers to ensure that members of clubs around Australia get to see the best available collections.

There are a number of exhibitors who are willing to travel intrastate to display their collections or to give a talk. While not directly supported by the APF with a financial contribution some State Councils may assist with expenses or in many cases the visiting speaker may just require a contribution towards some of their expenses.

Contact details for the individual speakers have been omitted for security reasons. To be put in touch with one of our speakers, the initial contact is with the Darryl Fuller, the Philatelic Development Officer, by email Darryl will then have the speaker contact you for the final arrangements.

It is important to note that before an individual club engages the services of a speaker they should discuss any financial commitment with the intended speaker, and any special requirements of that speaker. The Club should then contact their State Council to confirm that money is available for a visiting speaker and what the local arrangements are for reimbursement. This may vary from State to State and should be confirmed prior to confirming the speaker to ensure the Club knows its full costs (if any) beforehand.
