Our members include recognized experts, other specialists, serious collectors who study the philately of Brazil, and--more than all others put together--ordinary collectors who are just interested in forming or enlarging or understanding their collections of Brazil philatelic material. Dealers as well as collectors are welcome, and members include not only dealers, but even the publisher of a specialized catalog of Brazil's stamps and philately. Our membership list is held confidential, so you can join without worrying about becoming widely known unless you wish to be.
Member services include:
- Subscription to the quarterly journal, Bull's Eyes;
- Access to a library of reference material;
- Translation assistance;
- Discounts on purchase of specialized catalogues from Brazil;
- Back copies of Bull's Eyes issues at a nominal fee;
- Expertise and exhibit help; and
- Outreach programs.
BPA members also 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.
