Whether you are a beginner or an experienced philatelist, membership in the APS will help you grow your knowledge and your enjoyment of the hobby. Since 1886, APS members have shared their experience with stamps and postal history, as well as their lifelong accumulations, with fellow collectors around the world. Along the way, these collectors have built friendships to last a lifetime. The APS focuses on making stamp collecting an experience to be savored by all collectors. Membership in the Society is an easy and certain way to enhance your philatelic experience.
With the help of our member recruiters we have received 1,100 new members so far for 2021! Remember that APS members are what makes our community so amazing - “Together we Grow!” - you too can help the hobby of stamp collecting to stay strong. Click here to see details on our membership campaign to help us grow our hobby. This month, we were able to gain 115 new members to help strengthen our community. We wanted to thank all of our current members for their support, especially with recruiting more people who are passionate about the hobby. Our Christmas in July promotion was extremely effective, not only with helping us gain more members but also increasing our stamp store and circuit sales. Stay tuned for another exciting promotion in August!
