United States Study Group of the Ottawa Philatelic Society

“Friendship Through Philately”
2022 - 2023 Meeting Dates & Program

Members and guests of the OPS are invited to attend and participate in any of the meetings of the United States Study Group.


We follow a simple agenda for each meeting:

(1)  Show & Tell - Have you located an interesting piece you think others would like to see? If so, please bring it, tell us about it and pass it around. No research or formal
presentation is expected. If you think it is interesting, so will we!

(2) Questions & Answers - Do you have a question related to US or related stamps or postal history? Feel free to ask at the meeting - or preferably email your questions to the study group a week ahead to permit other members time to research or locate examples.

(3) Business (if there is any) and Announcements

(4) Our Program Topic discussion for the evening.
