A Convention of Philatelists Unlike Any Other...

With friendship and lots of social activities and opportunities to acquire material, CSA conventions are an annual treat.

We sponsor the annual CSA Philatelic Convention and Exhibition held at various national stamp shows across the country. The CONFEDERATE STAMP ALLIANCE Convention and Exhibition is the major annual gathering of Confederate collectors and features spectacular exhibits of Confederate stamps and covers.

The famous Southern Supper is a major convention event. Each year at the Southern Supper, the Confederate Stamp Alliance Awards are presented. These consist of the Haydn Myer Award (service to the Alliance), the CP Writers Award (best article in The Confederate Philatelist since the last convention), and the August Dietz Award (research and writing since the last convention).

In addition to these three awards, the exhibitors at the convention are recognized with a series of various exhibiting awards the most prestigious being the CSA Trophy for the best Confederate Exhibit. The awards presentations are always a highlight of the Southern Supper.
