The Haiti
Philatelic Society

Why become a member?

Knowledge - the key to greater philatelic enjoyment!

Special Delivery StampThe Haiti Philatelic Society was founded in 1975 and today has approximately 100 members. Seventy are from the United States and the rest from Canada, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and other nations.

Membership in this Society is open to all, from beginner to advanced alike. Membership entitles one to copies of the quarterly journal, Haiti Philately, to participate in the mail auctions of the Society, etc. The four auctions a year usually offer in excess of 75 lots in each auction, which run the gamut of the more common to more difficult stamps, as well as a great deal of postal history, revenue material, etc.

Haiti Philately is the award winning quarterly journal of the Haiti Philatelic Society. Typically, an issue of the journal comprises 16 pages, amongst which are to be found a lead article, plus a few shorter ones. As well, there are sections on Haiti-related worldwide auctions, new issues, membership activities, short pieces on postal history, etc. With an established record dating back over forty years, this English-language publication is devoted exclusively to the postal history, stamps, and issues of Haiti. Should you desire a sample copy of the journal, please send $3.00 US to Mr. Wally Deltoro.

Interested in joining with your fellow enthusiasts as you pursue collecting Haiti?

The Society offers six levels of membership: Basic, Sustaining, Beneficial, Patron, Life, and Honorary Life. Each level of membership, from Basic through the distinguished Honorary Life classification, offers full color printed versions of our journal.
