Membership Benefits

On behalf of the many Vatican and Roman States collectors who are already enjoying the benefits of membership in our internationally acclaimed society, we invite you to join us. The benefits of membership in the VPS are numerous:


VATICAN NOTES All memberships include a subscription to this quarterly publication devoted to the interests of Vatican and Roman States collectors.  A wealth of material not to be found in other philatelic journals is included as well as information on all new Vatican issues. See a sample issue here [PDF, 1.96mb]. 


A SLIDE PROGRAM is offered in which color slide shows of Vatican stamps may be had for individual use or group meetings.


CHAPTERS have formed in several cities. Chapters afford the opportunity of meeting socially with others who have the same philatelic interests. The national VPS will also gladly assist members interesting in forming new chapters.


SWAPPING OR SELLING between members is made easy; those interested submit their names and contact information to the editor for publication in "The Colonnade," a free listing of wants and swaps that appears in Vatican Notes.


We believe that our society will prove to be of inestimable value to you in furthering your hobby. May we look forward to receiving your application soon?
