Jürgen W. Glaeser died unexpectedly

With great sadness that the Management Board and members of the BPP learn the news of the sudden death of their longtime member Jürgen W. Glaeser from Hagen. Glaeser was the initiator of the “Group of Experts in the BPP,” for many years their spokesman. As a renowned Philatelist Glaeser had gained an excellent reputation in the industry, in addition, he was a dedicated local politician, who until 2014 worked as a district mayor in his hometown of Hagen. Jürgen Glaeser was 74 years old. We bow down in front of a grand, upright man, whom we will miss. Our sympathy in this difficult time is part of his family.


Dr. Heister suspended

The board of the BPP has suspended the expertizing activities of Dr. Knut Heister (Excpert area: Venezuela) at the BPP with immediate effect until 31.12.2020

BPP Expert wanted!

As a specialized collector, have you ever toyed with the idea of using your knowledge to be an stamp expert? Or have you ever been annoyed by an expert and thought: what he can do, I can do at least as well!

Advanced training seminar for BPP Experts in Pullach

The sun was rare this weekend, but instead it rained almost continuously in Pullach near Munich when eight BPP examiners gathered for a further training seminar at the “Hotel Seitnerhof” on 21 and 22 July.

The two lecturers, President Christian Geigle and Vice President Dr. Peter Provinsky, galloped with them through the newly created “Auditor’s Handbook” with its many regulations, in which the BPP regulates the work of its members, their relationship among themselves and their duties towards the association.
