In celebration of National Stamp Collecting Month (NSCM) this 2018, the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) will be conducting a Philatelic Forum entitled “Bridging Generations” which will be held at the GSIS Museum in Pasay City tomorrow, November 17.

Major topics lined-up to tackle in this forum are: Landscaping: Thai Post – Philately in the International Landscape, Adapting: ABS-CBN Media – Digital Media’s Effect on the Postal Service, Modernizing: PHLPost – Current Trends and new strategies in philately and mails, Preserving: Postal Museum – Significance of preserving philately and the new approach to stamp collecting.

An open forum will also be conducted after the discussions.

Registration and stamp selling will start at 8:30 while the forum proper will start at 9am and will end at 12 noon.
