Thursday 6:30pm to 10:00 pm

Tonight's presentation led by NTSC President, Mattia Guida.  It was broken down into two thought-provoking topics: 
  • The Future of Philately
  • The Future of Stamp Clubs (including ours)
There have been big changes in philately and stamp collecting in the last 20-30 years.  Mainly due to the internet, stamp collectors have now many more sources from where to buy stamps but also from where to obtain information about anything connected with our hobby. Yet stamp clubs have not changed a lot in the same period.

Tonight, we spent a bit of time discussing together where the world of philately is going and what our stamp club, as others, need to do to adjust to this new reality and continue to be a magnet for stamp collectors in the Toronto area.
