About the Society

The Australian Postcard Society Inc. began with a group of interested people meeting on Thursday 5th March 2009 to discuss the formation of a postcard club in Adelaide.

Since that date, an interim committee, followed by an elected committee, has achieved the following milestones:

  1. Decided on a club name and became registered as an incorporated body.
  1. Became affiliated with the South Australian Philatelic Council, with the benefits of:
    * access to a meeting place;
    * insurance cover; and
    * coming under the umbrella of the Australian Philatelic Federation via the Council.
  1. Held its Inaugural Meeting at which more than forty people attended; 32 financial members registered by the end of that night.A Souvenir Postcard was available on the night, with a special set of Counter Printed Stamps and cancelled with a special Club Postmarker, believed to be the first of its type issued.
  1. Held its Inaugural Annual General Meeting and election of a committee.
  1. Had a website set up courtesy of two members.
    That original website contained general information, a members’ area and links to other Australian clubs.
  1. The issue of four quarterly club magazines.
  1. Organised its first postal bid auction.
  1. Experienced a steady increase in membership to a total of 73 members, including junior members.

Club meetings are held monthly.

Each meeting features items from a nominated topic of interest, a display from one of the members and an auction.

Members may bring postcards for sale.

Tea and coffee are available at each meeting.
