The 2022 Membership Directory (Annuaire) of the European Academy of Philately (Académie Européenne de Philatélie, AEP) was mailed to the members a few days ago. The Directory was last produced in 2018. President Jean Voruz remarks that the 2022 edition continues the improvements initiated by his predecessor Bruno Crecato-Selvaggi. He goes on saying that the criteria are intended to be as coherent as possible with the international vocation, as well as the vision, mission and values of the AEP.
The 228-page Directory is written in French and English. Among other useful information about the AEP, it contains brief but comprehensive philatelic biographies of the AEP members, featuring their Society membership and principal philatelic positions held, Collections and philatelic interests, International awards, Publications and Spoken languages.
A few copies of the Directory are still available for the institutional actors of philately. Also available by the AEP to all philatelists is David R. Beech’s book, Philatelic Research, a comprehensive guide on how to look after our collections, at the price of 5 euros plus postage.
