IFSDA Welcomes PTS to Membership

IFSDA is delighted to announce that The Philatelic Trader’s Society (PTS, United Kingdom)  has joined its membership. The PTS application was unanimously approved at the recent IFSDA AGM held in Malmö, Sweden on 30th August 2014.

The PTS was formed in 1929 and is highly regarded as one of the senior stamp dealer associations. Whilst its strength of members is drawn from within the UK, the PTS also has many overseas members. IFSDA's President Richard Johnson commented: "With its seniority and international nature the PTS undeniably belongs within the IFSDA community and we look forward to their participation in our various activities."

 In the PTS's early years many trade fairs were organised and these have since evolved into London's very popular bi-annual Stampex. In addition, the PTS nowadays offers expertising services and - as with all IFSDA Associations - the confidence of dealing with members subscribing to a code of ethics with dispute resolution possibilities when problematic situations do arise.

IFSDA appreciates the positive participation the PTS Council intend within IFSDA and welcomes  PTS Chairman, Rick Warren, onto the IFSDA Board. Mr Warren  together with PTS Secretary Graham Childs have assisted our webmaster Hansueli Rickli to fully integrate the PTS members into IFSDA, especially onto the website listings where they can now update their own profiles so that all IFSDA members can familiarise themselves with the newcomers and explore possible new trading opportunities.

IFSDA is glad to have such an established and esteemed society become part of its membership. We look forward to a long-lasting partnership with the PTS!
