Benefits of Membership

The Society has nearly 300 members worldwide and, while a substantial number are general collectors, there is a keen specialist interest in most areas. The Society welcomes both specialist and general members.

The membership and application form can be downloaded here and the Society rules can be downloaded here. Members may opt to receive our journal in electronic form (e-Kiwi).

The current benefits of membership include:

  • The Kiwi is the official Journal of the Society and is circulated to all members six times a year. It contains articles of both a general and specialised nature together with other useful information on the stamps and postal history of New Zealand. It also provides a valuable forum for debate and correspondence between members.

  • Meetings are held every two months in London. In addition, Regional Group meetings are held in the North West of England, the Midlands, the West of England and in Scotland. Information and reports on all meetings of the Society are in The Kiwi.

  • All UK members are entitled to contribute to, and make purchases from, the thriving packet circuit. Further details are available from the packet secretary on joining the Society.

  • The Society holds annual competitions, with a range of category options, in London during March and at their away weekend held every second year during September.

  • An auction is held after the Annual General Meeting in November each year. All members may contribute material and can bid on items in person or by post.

  • Members are entitled to use the library of the Royal Philatelic Society London at 15 Abchurch Lane, London EC4N 7BW
