Kelsey Honored by APS

American First Day Cover Society Executive Secretary Doug Kelsey is a 2012 recipient of the American Philatelic Society’s Nicholas G. Carter Volunteer Recognition Award. Kelsey was one of five recipients in the category for National Promotion/Service.

In announcing the award, the APS had this to say about Doug:

“Doug Kelsey may be best known for his positions as an executive for the American Topical Association and the American First Day Cover Society. However, he is a “stamp” collector himself with a distinguished track record of volunteer service. He was Linn’s Meter columnist from 1992 through 2005, writing 152 columns over that period, and in 2003 he became Linn’s Air Mail columnist. In addition he has written at least twenty other articles and publications on meters and air mail. He currently serves the Meter Stamp Society as secretary-treasurer and has at least six multi-frame exhibits, most, if not all, of which have won golds and at least one has received a national Reserve Grand award.”

Kelsey, the AFDCS executive director/secretary since 1991, has been honored previously for his service to the AFDCS. In 2001 he received the Society’s Glenn Michel Service Award and in 2008 was awarded an honorary life membership.

Congratulations, Doug, on the APS Volunteer Recognition Award!
