After being President of the KNBF for four years, Jan Cees van Duin recently stopped at his own request. With great enthusiasm and pleasure he has worked in a friendly KNBF-team in the Netherlands and for the European philately. Of course he will continue in the philately, with his own collections.
Jan Cees van Duin supported FEPA at various meetings and had good opinions about which way to continue and further philately in Europe.
 
At the Annual Meeting on May 12thHans Kraaibeek, till then secretary of KNBF, was elected as new president.
 
The KNBF Annual Meeting took place at their new office in Houten, The Netherlands.
After a year of remodeling, not only the bureau moved to the new location, but also the KNBF-library, one of the most extensive in Europe.
In the new building also the exhibition-frames have their own place, cutting costs of renting storage space.
