We are glad you found the official website of the Utah Philatelic Society, the #1 destination for stamp collectors in Utah!

It shall be the purpose of the Utah Philatelic Society to:

     2.  Assist members to build bigger and better collections by providing greater opportunities to obtain philatelic material.

     3.  Formulate and put into effect programs designed to increase philatelic knowledge.

     4.  Cultivate and encourage tolerance, honesty, sportsmanship, generosity and good fellowship in all our associations.
