About our Chapter

Stamp Template Founded in 1949 by a dedicated group of hobbyists, the GERMANY PHILATELIC SOCIETY has become a community of collectors, exhibitors, jurors and postal historians for philatelic material of 'Germany & Areas', or related in some way in history to Germany. Our members are located worldwide, albeit our society is North American-based.


For Chicago & Suburbs, CHICAGOLAND CHAPTER 5 is the local chapter for the Society, albeit members of Chapter 5 do not have to be members of the national Germany Philatelic Society. Meetings are once a month for social activities and special programs on a wide variety of subjects. Everyone from novice to advanced collector is invited to attend the meetings and consider joining. Members of the Chapter must also be members of the national Germany Philatelic Society.
