A joint meeting between the Glasgow Thematic Society and the British Thematic Society will be held during the Saturday morning (21st April) of Congress.
The Association of Scottish Philatelic Societies (ASPS) is a collection of local societies fr om throughout Scotland whose aim is to further the study of Stamps, Postcards and Postal History. ASPS is formed by each society nominating a delegate who attends up to 3 meetings per year on their society's behalf.
There are currently 45 local societies throughout Scotland of whom 9 are specialist societies and who have meetings throughout most of the year. If you are interested in joining a society have a look at the affiliated society page of the website to see wh ere your local society is and what’s on.
Each year the association organises a National Exhibition (commonly called Congress), usually in April, at which a number of dealers attend in order that philatelists can purchase items and also to display their collections, either competitively or non-competitively. Congress is hosted each year by a different society and that society usually produces a cover and/or postcard specifically for the occasion.
