NZPF Northern Region established 1985


The Philatelic Youth Council of New Zealand Incorporated (PYC) was formed in 1985 by the New Zealand Philatelic Federation to promote youth philately in New Zealand. The PYC now stands alone as an independent entity but maintains a special relationship with the Federation. The PYC is a non-profit organisation that relies on the donations it receives from stamp collectors and other interested organisations.

The rules the Council are contained in the Constitution of the PYC.
