We are a postal society with a world wide membership of approx. 150 and the vehicle that keeps the members informed of the latest information is a quarterly magazine “Postal Himal”. Postal Auctions are also held two or three times a year, which apart from helping to finance the society they are a good source of good quality material. Meetings are often held in conjunction with international exhibitions when a number of our members are attending that particular exhibition. The NTPSC is affiliated with:

American Philatelic Society, Affiliate # 122

British Philatelic Federation, Affiliate # 435
