Stamps and Philately Working Group
The aim of the Stamps and Philately Working Group is to promote stamps and philately in general and EUROPA stamps in particular. The working group is responsible for selecting the themes of the upcoming EUROPA stamps issues and monitoring any developments that may affect European philately and EUROPA stamps.
