SECRETARY OF FIP SECTION for ASTROPHILATELY
Report of activities 2011
My club GMÜNDER WELTRAUMFREUNDE launched four "mail rockets” in memoriam of "50 years Gagarin flight”, STS133 ,STS134, STS135, ATV, AUSTROMIR and others. I served as a jury member at GRAZ ( Marke&Münze 2011 ), Bucarest ( AEROMFILA 2011 ) and at the philatelic saloon Pinkafeld ( PINKABRIA 2011 ).
This year I have been elected as "chairman of the exhibition- management” and 1st secretary in Austria. I worked hard as board member of the Austrian Philatelic Association – especially international matters are my agenda. I plan to attended the FIP-Congress at Jakarta 2012 ( Delegate for Austria ) and the commission-meeting as Secretary for the section Astrophilately.
I am appointed as Austrian National Commissioner for Bangkok ( THAILAND 2013 ).
In the future it will be very important to intensify personal contacts with all active ASTROPHILATELY-Jurors to obtain an even levelling and further development of all active ASTROPHILATELY-Jurors world-wide. It is not acceptable that Jurors judge Astrophilately-exhibits without having an Astrophilately-exhibit on FIP-level on their own.
