Although America’s next international philatelic exhibition is only about a month away from opening its doors, work is already been well underway on the following show, Boston 2026, taking place at the Boston Convention and Exposition Center May 23–30, 2026.
The twelfth U.S. international philatelic exhibition is officially named “Boston 2026 World Stamp Show” and can be found online at www.boston2026.org on a site in cooperation with the Northeastern Federation of Stamp Clubs. Planning went into high gear after the American Philatelic Society Board of Directors voted to accept Boston’s bid to host the 2026 show on February 12, 2015. The selection of Boston was especially significant as it will be the focus of activity as America celebrates its 250th anniversary that year.
Organizers of Boston 2026 include Nancy B. Clark of Marstons Mills, MA, President; Steve Walske of San Francisco, CA, CFO; Christopher Brouady of Burlington, MA, Secretary/Clerk; Yamil H. Kouri, Jr. of Lexington, MA, Director; and George S. Norton, Esq. of Auburndale, MA, Resident Agent. The Executive Director is Mark A. Butterline of Maynard, MA.
All will be attending World Stamp Show–NY 2016 for a closed business meeting on Thursday, June 2, followed by a kickoff meeting open to the public on Saturday, June 4 from 1 to 2 p.m. in Room 1E07. Everyone is welcome to learn more about initial show plans.
