Latest news on the CSA Annual Meeting and NAPEX
Like all of you, the officers and trustees of the Confederate Stamp Alliance are following the COVID-19 outbreak around the globe closely and taking steps to stay as safe and healthy as we can. We are committed to doing our part. There is nothing more important to the Confederate Stamp Alliance than the safety and well-being of our members.
Even though NAPEX is three months away, the show is still a go. We will continue to closely monitor the COVID 19 situation and impacts, particularly as it relates to large gatherings. We will do our best to keep you informed regarding plans for the annual meeting at NAPEX.
Please watch the News and Events page on the CSA website. We will keep that updated and send CSA email newsletters to keep our membership informed.
Also, the APS has added a webpage that lists all cancelled shows.
Our heartfelt gratitude to the healthcare and government experts working around the clock to ensure our safety and our best wishes to any and all who have been touched personally by this illness.
