About

The Portuguese Philatelic Society (PPS) was founded in the United Kingdom in the early 1960s. Our current membership is scattered throughout the world and embraces all walks of life. The PPS is dedicated to understanding and promoting the philately of Portugal and its former colonies. Our members regularly participate in shows and exhibitions at the national and international level. The PPS always welcomes new members: please see our membership page.

One of the benefits of PPS membership is the quarterly bulletin. As a forum for the membership as a whole, the bulletin is filled with specialised articles that clearly demonstrate the level of interest and commitment to the philately of Portugal and colonies.

The PPS holds an annual general meeting (AGM) in the UK in a location advantageous to as many members as possible. Every 5 years the AGM takes place in Portugal. The AGM  includes an auction, two competitive members’ exhibitions, and informal displays.

The current society officers are:

President Dave McIntyre
Secretary John Swan
Treasurer Francis Rodrigues
Bulletin Editor Ron van der Holt
Bulletin Distributor Paul Woodness
Packet Secretary Dave McIntyre
Auctioneer Roger Lawson
Librarian Frits van Beekum
Webmaster Michel Wermelinger
