AFDCS.org is Gold Again

AFDCS Website Wins Top Award In APS Competition

2017 Web Comp Gold Medal
For the fourth time, the American First Day Cover Society's website, AFDCS.org, has received a Gold award in the American Philatelic Society's Chapter and Affiliates Web Awards competition.

´┐╝The AFDCS website previously won Gold awards in 2012, 2013 and 2014. The site was not entered in competition in 2015 and 2016.

The AFDCS webmaster is Todd Ronnei, a paralegal in Minnesota. He has been webmaster since 2009. From 2009 to 2016 he was also a member of the Board of Directors, serving as its chairman for five years.

The website includes a "News Blog” with the latest news about the AFDCS; digital downloads, including the latest issues of the Society journal First Days; membership applications and renewals; a "marketplace" where first day cover collectors can purchase both FDCs and AFDCS publications; the results of the annual Cachet Contest; and basic information about FDC collecting.

"Congratulations and thanks to Todd for his excellent work,” said AFDCS President Lloyd de Vries. De Vries was a judge for the 2017 competition, but he recused himself from judging the AFDCS site.
