New Benefit: Member Connect

AFDCS Offers Members Free Online Collecting Interests Feature

The American First Day Cover Society is offering its members a way to find other members with similar collecting interests and to seek out wanted items.

With the new “Member Connect” benefit, members may submit their collecting interests in a secure area of the website, accessible only to other members. There is no charge for the service. Commercial ads and cachetmaker ads are not permitted in Member Connect entries. (Separate ads on the website may be purchased.)

An individual’s Member Connect entry may include any topic of general philatelic or FDC interest, or can be used to seek specific items (such as "want ZIP block on FDC for Sc. 1306"). There is a limit of 25 words per listing, and one listing per member. Members can submit changes or delete their listings at any time.

Member Connect can be found in the Members Area of the website, accessed via the “Member Login” button on the homepage. AFDCS members who do not already have access to this area can request it by sending their names and membership numbers via email to

In that same area, members can download copies of First Days, a full-color magazine published six times a year by the AFDCS. More members only content is planned for the near future.
