History

The society was founded in 1914 by Mr. A. W. Spanton who posted an advertisement in the newspaper, and received a response from twelve philatelists who then formed the club, which they called the Sacramento Stamp Society. Early meetings of the society were at the YMCA and later churches, schools, and any location they could find to hold their meetings. The society grew quickly and changed its name to the Sacramento Philatelic Society.

Location

Meetings are held every Wednesday evening from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the Easter Seal Center, located at 3205 Hurley Way in Sacramento. Meetings consist of company business, circuit books, and presentations.

Publications

A newsletter, entitled The Philatelic Prospector, is published by the society.

SACAPEX

The philatelic exhibition SACAPEX (Sacramento California Philatelic Exhibition) is sponsored by the society and is held annually.

Organization

The society operates by its set of by-laws. Elective officers are the president, vice president, treasurer, and members of the board of directors.
