In October 2006, the AIJP participated in a special meeting in Berne that had been organised by the World Association for the Development of Philately (WADP). Other participants were representing national philatelic associations and postal administrations. One of the goals of the meeting was to strengthen the relations between the participants.

On May 5th, 2006, during the 16th International Stamp Fair in Essen (Germany), a meeting will be held that is open to officials of the various international philatelic organisations. On the agenda is a tighter international cooperation between the organisations that are represented, in the light of developments in the field of philately. One of the items of discussion will be how to deal with postal administrations and – more specifically – with the way they are developing their marketing techniques. Invitations for this meeting were sent to the main philatelic organisations: AIJP, ASCAT, FEPA, FIP and IFSDA and also to officials of a number of stamp collectors’ associations, the philatelic trade and the philatelic press. The meeting will be presided by Michael Adler (AIJP), former Board Member of both FIP and FEPA. Adler, who can boast of an extensive experience in this field and who has contacts with all the parties involved.
