Online First Days For All Members

AFDCS To Make Digital Edition of First Days Available To All Members

The Board of Directors of the American First Day Cover Society has voted to make the digital edition of First Days, its award-winning journal, available to all classes of membership. First Days, which is published eight times a year, is one of the principal benefits of membership in the AFDCS.

The exact date of implementation depends on several technical issues, which should be resolved in the next few months.

The AFDCS offers several levels of membership: Online, which does not include a printed copy of First Days; Regular, which does; Silver and Gold, which allow members to express their support of the AFDCS and first day cover collecting; and Life.

Previously, all classes except Regular had access to the online version of First Days.

“We’re pleased to offer this benefit to all members of the AFDCS at no additional cost, said webmaster Todd Ronnei. "Philatelic publishing is becoming increasingly digital, and this benefit is a reflection of that."

The AFDCS also offers Family (which do not include a separate copy of the journal) and Youth memberships at reduced cost. These, too, will have access to the digital edition.

The American First Day Cover Society is the world's largest not-for-profit organization dedicated to the collecting of FDCs. Each issue of First Days is published in full color and includes articles, columns, Society business, a non-commercial Cover Exchange, and the best collection of FDC advertisements anywhere.
