The ÉPA was one of four philatelic societies that had its annual general meeting  (AGM) in conjunction with CHICAGOPEX '15 in Itasca, Illinois from November 20 through November 22, 2015. 

The ÉPA meeting of the Board was held on the evening of November 19th with a quorum of Board members present.

CHICAGOPEX '15 was well attended in spite of cold temperatures and a Saturday snowstorm.  There were 290 philatelic exhibit frames for competition, five non-competitive frames, and 23 literature exhibits.

There were five exhibits of Irish material, including a single-frame non-competitive exhibit showing various aspects of Irish philately.  All of the Irish competitive exhibits won awards, as explained in detail in Ray Murphy's  column in the

Winter 2015 issue of The Revealer.  The members of the Chicago Philatelic Society, hosting their 129th Anniversary Exhibition, were gratious hosts and arranged for an award's banquet on Saturday evening.
