Membership entitles one to copies of the quarterly journal, Haiti Philately, to participate in the mail auctions of the Society, etc. The four auctions a year usually offer in excess of 75 lots in each auction, which run the gamut of the more common to more difficult stamps, as well as a great deal of postal history, revenue material, etc.
Haiti Philately is a quarterly journal of the Haiti Philatelic Society. Typically, an issue of the journal comprises 16 pages, amongst which are to be found a lead article, plus a few shorter ones. As well, there are sections on Haiti-related worldwide auctions, new issues, membership activities, short pieces on postal history ("A Cover Story"), etc. This is the only publication in English of its kind worldwide that is devoted exclusively to the postal history, stamps, and revenue issues of Haiti.
Should you desire a sample copy of the journal, please send $3 US (or IRC equivalent) to Mr. Wally Deltoro.
