THE AWARD OF 

THE FEDERATION OF THE EUROPEAN PHILATELIC ASSOCIATIONS

 

 

On November 2000, the administrative council of the Federation of European Philatelic Associations (FEPA) decided on a unanimous vote to award the Hellenic Philotelic Society with the Certificate of Appreciation for the 75 years of the Society's activities and the uninterrupted publication of "Philotelia" journal.

 

FEPA was founded in 1988 and today is the representative body of approximately 40 national Federations in Western Europe and North Africa, with the intention to expand and include the Federations of the nations of Eastern Europe as well.

 

FEPA is the third Continental Federation that was formed, FIAF (America) and FIAP (Asia) were the forerunners. It is today evolving as a power with considerable strength inside the philatelic community, being the Federation that has members in the stronger philatelic countries.

 

Since 1999, FEPA has established the Certificate of Appreciation, which up until today has been awarded to the following organizations:

1999 - Philatelic Federation of Switzerland.

1999 - Philatelic Society of Zdar (Czech Republic).

2000 - Philatelic Society BriefmarkenFreunde Dusseldorf (Germany).

 

 

Certificate of Appreciation

 

The Federation of European Philatelic Associations FEPA will

appreciate outstanding philatelic activities of  local stamp clubs within its

member associations. FEPA considers it a privilege to honour those

above standard activities that enhance and stimulate philately

and that may be used as examples to be published.

 

It is a great pleasure to felicitate the

 

HELLENIC PHILOTELIC SOCIETY

 

promoting philately in Greece for now 75 years with no interruption and with steady dedication. The Hellenic Philotelic Society is the publisher of the bimonthly and bilingual journal 

 

"PHILOTELIA"

 

that has appeared uninterruptedly with more than 600 issues since its inception in 1924. It's appearance was not even interrupted during the years of German occupation in Greece. This journal has contributed considerably to stimulate and promote philately with stamp collectors in Greece.
