To celebrate the new decade, the American Philatelic Society announced a new challenge: Recruiting 2020 new members during 2020. And to show our commitment, the APS offered life memberships as an incentive and a thank you.
The memberships included:
The year-long contest ended on December 31, 2020. Unfortunately, due to the spread of Covid-19, the Spring Meeting at St. Louis Stamp Expo was canceled. Therefore no Life Membership drawings could occur at the General Membership meeting.
As April is traditionally the month when the APS recognizes and honors members, a paramount example being The American Philatelist's Member Recognition issue, the APS decided to conduct the random drawing of the 2020 Challenge Life Memberships and announce the winners live on a Facebook/YouTube, April 29 at 3:00 PM EDT.
See the 2020 Challenge Leaderboards here.
