FDCSG - First Day Cover Study Group

The First Day Cover Study Group (FDCSG) is a special interest group associated with the British North American Philatelic Society (BNAPS). The mandate is broad and evolving as they seek ways to promote the production and collection of Canadian First Day Covers.

One of the responsibilities of the group is to publish a newletter. Copies of the newsletter First Impressions are available here.

    In conformance with BNAPS guidelines, here is how the sign-up and dues payment process will work:

    1. The first year of membership will begin whenever you sign up and end on December 31, 2009 regardless of when you sign up. The annual fee is $10 Canadian.
    2. If you are NOT now a member of BNAPS, you have two options:
    A. Join BNAPS and receive free membership in the FDC Study Group until December 31, 2009. The BNAPS membership application is available on their website at http://www.bnaps.org/form.htm. Your dues should be sent directly to BNAPS, and they will forward a portion of that to the Study Group.
    B. Join the Study Group as a trial member until December 31, 2009 and pay only the $10 study group membership fee. You must join BNAPS by the end of that period to retain your membership in the Study Group. Your dues for the first year of the Study Group should be sent to Treasurer Gary Dickinson.
    3. If you ARE now a member of BNAPS, you may join as many study groups as you wish, including the FDC Study Group whose membership fee is $10. Your dues for the first year of the Study Group should be sent to Treasurer Gary Dickinson.
