The annual Conference of the Philatelic Federation of Finland was held on Saturday, 12 September 2020. Representatives of the philatelic societies and clubs gathered together in Helsinki, although their number was lower than usual.
In addition to normal business the Conference elected a new President for the Federation, because Mr. Klaus Juvas had served all three possible terms and he was not available anymore.
The new President is Mr. Petteri Hannula. He is a prominent philatelist who has participated in numerous domestic and international exhibitions. He is also a Nordic level juror in postal history and national juror in literature. Petteri has written several books about Finnish postal history.
The other Board members are Kari Lindholm, Jukka Mäkipää, Juha Niininen, Kalle Nurminen, Seppo Salonen, and Kai Varsio.
I wish them the best of success in their efforts to take philately forward in Finland!
The newly elected President of the Philatelic Federation of Finland, Mr. Petteri Hannula.
