TURN SOLITARY STUDY INTO A MORE PLEASURABLE EXPERIENCE
Chapters provide a forum for learning, sharing and enjoying your stamps. There is great benefit to be had from access to the combined knowledge of a Chapter where you can discuss Chinese philately.
The Board of Directors is authorized to receive applications from five or more members residing in a common area to form a Chapter of the Society. Upon approval by the Board each Chapter is authorized to organize and to carry on such activities as are compatible with the objectives of this Society.
Although each Chapter follows certain standards, such as sending out announcements of meetings and holding elections of officers every two years, there is no "one way" to develop a Chapter. Each group finds its own method for success. Usually there is a short presentation or topic for discussion, sharing of curiosities found since the last meeting, "show-and-tell" of favorite or important items from members collections and sometimes an auction or stamp swap. Meeting places vary and include local library meeting rooms, members' homes, and restaurants.
