Honorary Life Members

Inaugural Honorary Life Member certificate awarded by WAPC. Presented to Andrew Martin in 2021

2021 – Andrew Martin
In recent years it has been very noticeable that the number of volunteers in the hobby has been diminishing due to ageing and the lack of younger members taking their place.

One volunteer, from the Philatelic Society of Rockingham and Kwinana Districts (PSRKD), is a notable exception. Andrew Martin has dedicated many hours of his time in promoting youth philately. Andrew has organised and manned the Youth table at most fairs and shows for many years, encouraging many hundreds of youth to take an interest in the hobby.

As a dedicated club member of PSRKD, Andrew has been a committee member, conducted the monthly auctions and maintained the club’s library.

The Western Australian Philatelic Council is very pleased to award Andrew the first ever Honorary Life Membership of the WAPC for his youth work and dedication to philately.
