Kent Federation of Philatelic Societies (K.F.P.S)

Description:

1) K.F.P.S. Objectives and Activities.

The Kent Federation of Philatelic Societies was founded in 1947 and for your information we list our objectives and activities

The Kent Federation of Philatelic Societies is an informal association of Twenty Two Philatelic Societies, Clubs & Groups based in Kent.

It was founded with the following objectives
• To bring all of the Philatelic Societies in Kent into closer co-operation with one another.
• To provide them with assistance and/or guidance on philatelic matters.
• To further the interests of philately in a friendly and understanding atmosphere.
• To take united action on matters of philatelic importance.
• To co-ordinate lists of speakers and competition judges.
• To disseminate news of philatelic events, society meetings, members’ views, successes and plans for the future.

We accomplish our objectives in the following ways
• We arrange for three Kent wide meetings annually in which all our affiliated Societies and everyone can participate – these are known as the Spring Rally, Federation Day and the Autumn Rally. These as a matter of policy are held in various parts of the county each year.
• Our news magazine, the KFPS Bulletin, is published three times a year and keeps our affiliated societies in touch with what is happening at local, county & national levels.

The Kent Federation of Philatelic Societies, in turn, relies on the local societies and many individuals contributing towards its success – in other words, membership is mutually beneficial.

Hampshire Philatelic Federation

Hampshire Philatelic Federation
Description:

The Hampshire Philatelic Federation exists to support and advance the interests of all philatelists in Hampshire and neighbouring counties who are members of Clubs and Societies affiliated to the Federation.

The Federation Yearbook is published bi-annually with an annual update included in the January edition of the Bulletin. The Bulletin is issued in January, April and September. It contains details of Society Programmes, Fairs, Auctions, and Events occurring in the area, and is the main channel of communication between the Federation and Society members. Details of dealers that trade throughout Hampshire are included by means of adverts, and articles of general interest to stamp, cover and postal history enthusiasts are contributed from many sources in an exciting and readable format.

The Federation operates an excellent and popular Stamp Approval Packet which is circulated to all club and society members of good standing on a regular basis. Each packet usually contains about twenty books of worldwide stamps with plenty of variety.

The Federation Council is made up of delegates from the affiliated societies and meets regularly during the year to exchange ideas for the promotion of our hobby. These meetings provide an important opportunity for societies to voice the opinions and views of their members. See What a stamp club could do for you for the benefits of society membership.

The Federation has established an excellent reputation in the UK philatelic scene and provides active input to the Association of British Philatelic Societies. Each year the Federation holds a Convention – HAMPEX, which brings together dealers, specialist societies, and collectors from near and far.
