The American Philatelist team is fortunate to have expert philatelists who are eager to write passionately about their specialties. Their bylines should be familiar to you: people like Wayne Youngblood, Trish Kaufmann, Bob Lamb, Cheryl Ganz and Paul Holland. In this issue, David Ball writes about Astrophilately and Greg Galetti features the postal history of the League of Nations.
The editorial team is lucky to have these and other philatelists contribute to the AP. We know their “Stamp IQ” is solid. The editors work with the writers on context, length and layout to bring the magazine to our members each month.
We want to extend that relationship to more APS members and form the Content Review Committee.
The purpose is to enhance the value of APS content and understanding of philatelic knowledge for APS members and potential members of the organization.
Any member may express interest, as long as they have demonstrated philatelic knowledge (general or specialized). In addition, a willingness to volunteer your time on an as-needed basis to the editorial staff.
How will the committee be involved? We will ask you to help evaluate proposed articles for philatelic relevance and make recommendations on accepting those ideas for publication. When articles are submitted, members of the committee will be asked to review philatelic claims for accuracy.
Are you interested? Please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject “Content Review Committee.”
Special thanks to those members who have already contacted us and interested!
