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. The information in the table shows exhibitors who are willing to display their collections or to give a talk. The subject and philatelic class of their material is shown.
Some speakers are prepared to travel outside their city or State. This is shown under travel. It is important that, before an individual club engages the services of a speaker, they should discuss any financial or special requirements with them. Some speakers may just require a contribution towards their expenses or may be prepared to billet with a club member. State Councils may assist with expenses of the visiting speaker. The Club should contact their State Council to confirm that money is available for a visiting speaker and to understand the arrangements for reimbursement. This may vary from State to State. This should be confirmed prior to confirming the speaker, to ensure the Club knows its full costs (if any) beforehand
The email details for some speakers have been omitted. Where they are present ( please copy and paste the email address) you can contact the exhibitor directly to discuss the date and subject of a presentation. Where the email says “Contact PDO” the initial contact is with the Stephanie Bromser, the Philatelic Development Officer, by email – Stephanie will then have the speaker contact you to make arrangements.NOTE: The table below shows 50 rows. To view the rest of the table please use the control at the top left or bottom right of the table. The search box top right will also assist locating specific items, e.g. a State, class, name or exhibit title
