Why Collect Brazil?
About the Brazil Philatelic Association
The Brazil Philatelic Association explores all aspects of Brazilian philately and has published more than 160 issues of its quarterly journal, Bull’s Eyes, since becoming an active APS affiliate in 1970. Member services include translation assistance, discounts on purchase of specialized catalogues from Brazil, back copies of BE issues at a nominal fee, expertise and exhibit help, and outreach programs. BPA members have the privilege of placing free “advertisements” in each issue of the journal — either to offer material for sale/trade, to post a want list, to seek information from the collective knowledge of the membership, or to establish contact with fellow members interested in a particular collecting topic.
Dues are $20/year ($35/2 years; $50/3 years) for residents of the United States,
and for residents of other countries
$26/year ($50/2 years; $75/ 3 years).
The BPA also has a strong affiliation with a youth organization in the Midwest. BPA members have an opportunity to serve as pen pals and advisors to young collectors, and some of these junior “Brasileiros” have successfully exhibited at regional shows.
During the past fifteen years, the BPA has met as a group at stamp shows in Washington, San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, Norfolk, Birmingham, Orlando, New York, and Copenhagen.
In the true spirit of Carnival, the BPA
runs on the premise that philately is what we make of it, not what
we pay for it.
