Charlotte Philatelic Society

The Charlotte Philatelic Society was founded in 1963 to enhance and stimulate the hobby of stamp collecting for the Charlotte area. The club is affiliated with the American Philatelic Society. The club sponsors each year in late July a dealer bourse and exhibition called CHARPEX which started in 1965.  Early presidents were Herman Bauman, Justine Schrapper, Ferenc Sajgo and Charles Yates.  The club has 102 members, as of April 2024.  All stamp collectors are welcome to attend.
