Webinar Speakers = Michel Houde 

The evolution from simple collector to specialist will be explored by Toronto philatelist Michel Houde, a member of the Philatelic Specialists Society of Canada as well as other clubs and specialist societies. In retirement he has plunge into researching his collecting areas and written over many articles for the philatelic community.

Specialization should interest general collectors because having a purpose and challenging yourself are great ways to maintain your mental health. There’s also the added satisfaction from making discoveries and having eureka moments.
After much research and discussion with nearly 30 other philatelic specialists and dealers, Michel will explore why and how philatelists become specialists. He will also share what collectors have gained from being a specialist and what it allows them to give back to the hobby. He will also offer advice and insight on how collectors can evolve into specialists.
