NORDIA 2009: is being held in Hafnarfjörður,
Iceland, May 28 to 31, 2009. Gregory Frantz will be the Commissioner representing
SCC at NORDIA. Greg will also serve on the jury panel as well.

Sigurður R. Pétursson, president of the Icelandic Federation, called me some time
ago to ask us for a Commissioner who would also serve on the panel. This is a greatly
appreciated gesture from the Icelandic Federation which I hope will be the norm for
future NORDIA's as well. We hope for a strong presence from SCC here as we have done
in past NORDIA's.

Please contact Greg Frantz if you are interested in exhibiting in Iceland.
His e-mail is: Greg needs the applications well in advance of the
1/15/08 deadline. Applications can be found on their website - just click on the American
 flag in the left column to get the English version unless you are well versed in Icelandic.

Iceland Air flies to many US Cities so it's possible to get direct flights there. This
is also a good time of the year to visit Iceland as a tourist in case the 700 exhibit frames
and other philatelic events doesn't take up all your time!
