Seapex World Series of Philately status suspended
By Linn’s Staff
The American Philatelic Society on June 16 announced that it suspended the World Series of Philately status for the Seapex stamp show for violating rules.
The show was originally scheduled for Sept. 8-10.
“In early May, CANEJ [Committee on Accreditation of National Exhibitions and Judges] Chair Darrell Ertzberger notified the SEAPEX Committee that it had failed to propose a jury per the requirements of the APS World Series of Philately rules,” the APS stated. “After anyone on the show committee could not respond, the APS initiated a review of the show committee and activities to ensure the show could succeed as planned.”
The APS noted the rules violations included “failure to meet reporting deadlines,” “failure to maintain the level of excellence expected of a WSP show,” and “violating one or more WSP Exhibition rules.”
The APS board of directors unanimously approved the suspension of WSP status for Seapex on June 12.
