Summer Seminar Online is a month-long series of seminars that members can enjoy from the comfort of their own homes. From June 1 to June 30, these workshops feature a variety of topics taught by presenters who are all philatelic experts and accomplished writers, exhibitors, dealers, and specialized collectors. It's a time to dig deep into specific studies, research, and socialize with fellow collectors who understand the quirks of the hobby. Whether you are a beginner or advanced collector, all APS members can be sure to find a topic of interest. A full catalog and calendar of classes can be found at stamps.org/SummerSeminar.
Available to APS members only, registration is through our online learning platform, C3a. Workshops and courses can be added to a cart and purchased by credit card. The seminars require minimal technology equipment. Participants simply need an internet connection and a computer or device.
