Pre-Show Seminar - India Study Circle - Thursday, May 24, 2018

Once again, Rocky Mountain Stamp Show is holding a pre-show seminar specializing in areas of our attending societies. The last time was with the Miitary Postal Society and it was a huge success with attendance constant throughout the entire day.
This year it will be the turn of the India Study Circle (ISC) presenting with some of the great names in philatelic research such as you can see in the schedule below. A wide group of talks, some 10 speakers during the day on Thursday, will be of great interest with much to be learned. Some time will be allotted for some Q&A afterwards so please come and stay as long as you can.
