NZPF Northern Region established 1977
The ZEAPEX Philatelic Trust was formerly known as the New Zealand Stamp Exhibition Trust – name change 21 October 2004.
For many years, the Trust has financially supported New Zealand’s involvement in FIP and FIAP exhibitions abroad by funding commissioners’ travel costs (either directly or through the New Zealand Philatelic Federation) and exhibitors’ frame fees. They have also funded New Zealand’s participation in international governing bodies (such as the executive committee of the FIAP) and various domestic organizations such as the Philatelic Youth Council, the Association of Northern Philatelic Societies and various stamp clubs holding club exhibitions. The ZEAPEX Trust has provided over $500,000 to support the hobby over the years.
The Trust remains committed to supporting organised philately in New Zealand.
