Federation Subscriptions

Subscriptions from Societies should include all members of the society as the basis for payment. This includes youth, overseas, honorary and life members and these numbers form the basis for voting quotas.

Federation Website

Since the last news release 22 ‘pages’ have been changed or added and 53 ‘pages’ remain unchanged. It is important the information on the web pages is up-to-date and societies are urged to ensure their pages are regularly updated.

Judging Matters

The Judges Association has indicated they plan to hold three judging courses this year – one in each region.

Dates have not been set for the courses but advice will be given as soon as they are finalised. While these courses are primarily for judges it is anticipated that exhibitors – existing or potential – will be welcome if space permits.

New Zealand 2005

Preliminary discussions have been held with New Zealand Post regarding the possibility of an international exhibition in New Zealand in 2005 – the 15oth Anniversary of our first stamps. A formal proposal has been submitted for consideration and further information will be advised in due course.
