President’s Letter

Dear Members,
some of you have heard and many were present at the Aerophilately Seminar which took place on May 28th.
The important appointment clarified how those should prepare the collection who want to exhibit in competition in FIP exhibitions in light of the changes regulations introduced in recent times.
Of course, those who do not want to try their hand at the new Federation Guidelines International, which our Federation has always made its own, is free to exhibit at various invited exhibitions or at some social exhibition, such as ours gloriosa “Aerophilately’s Day”, which AIDA will resume organizing in the future, hoping that there are no further health impediments.
The 50th Congress and the General Assembly of the FISA (International Federation of Aerofilatelic Societies) to which it belongs also our AIDA who was represented by our Secretary, Flavio Riccitelli, to whom I had entrusted my recommendations for the future of the Federation and my greetings together with those of our entire board.
From 30 September to 2 October AIDA will be present at Bergamofil with one of our members stand and with initiatives that we have yet to define in the next meetings of Board members.
We will also be present at the next conference in Verona from 18 to 20 November where our elective assembly will also be held with the election of the new AIDA’s Board members.
I take this opportunity to appeal to the members: we need to find some
members who wants to lend a hand in an effective way because it is not right that they are always the usual ones to dedicate time and work to our Association.
I therefore invite these volunteers to send their application to enter the next one Board members.
I wish everyone a peaceful and restful summer vacation!
