Meetings

 
We aim to hold at least 11 meetings per year, at various times and places around New Zealand.  
At least two meetings are jointly held with either the Wellington or Hutt Valley Philatelic Society, at their premises and their usual meeting dates.  Recently we have been branching out, holding regional meetings, usually tied to a Stamp Show or Exhibition and run by the local Vice-President or our President.
 
Our AGM is always held in October or November, and a Xmas meeting in December.  We don't usually meet in January.
