Southern California Stamp Clubs            

Stamp clubs meeting in various cities from San Luis Obispo to Bakersfield and south to San Diego, plus Las Vegas, are listed here, along with the times, dates and places of their meetings. There is also a contact person listed for most all of them, along with, when known, an e-mail address as well as a Web site URL.

Much of this information is from the APS Chapters web site, and those clubs that are APS Chapters have their name shown in red with their APS Chapter number and membership number. The contact person is the club's representative to the APS. An asterisk ahead of the name indicates the club is also a member of the FPCSC.

Some of the clubs are chapters of national specialty societies, such as the American First Day Cover Society, China Stamp Society and the Éire Philatelic Association. In those cases, there are also links to the national society's web site.

The clubs are listed in alphabetical order. Click on the links here to speed your search, or you may scroll through the whole list of clubs.
