All Calgary Philatelic Society meetings are open to the general public. You don’t have to be a member in order to interact with other collectors, listen to our monthly speakers, or partake in the refreshments. But membership does have numerous advantages. Here are some of them.
Auctions: Only members can sell philatelic material directly at our club auctions. Members also have the option of paying by cheque for material purchased.
Calgary Philatelist: New issues of the Calgary Philatelist are available exclusively to members. Copies are mailed using current stamps and postmarks. Recent newsletters can also be viewed in the members only section on the website. Members are further entitled to place free classified ads.
Library: The Calgary Philatelic Society library is one of only two Canadian libraries listed in the authoritative Official Stamp Collectors Handbook. The library contains hundreds of books, catalogues and often rare reference material. A membership card is required to check out items.
Members-Only Website Pages: A number of sections on the website are restricted to active members. This includes viewing current newsletters, placing free member ads and checking out or updating member profiles.
Yahoo Group: Do you want to connect with other Calgary-area stamp collectors online and get local breaking stamp news? The Yahoo Group e-mail server is exclusively available to members.
Beyond this, your support is ensuring the continuation of a vibrant club for the local stamp collecting community and a philatelic voice and outlet for Southern Albertans.
