Great Britain Philatelic Society – Website Registration

Registration on the Great Britain Philatelic Society website provides access to the members-only content on the site, including the discussion boards, and so is only available to members of the society. (If you are not a member and are interested in joining, please fill in the application form.)

To register, you will need your membership number. Members who receive printed copies of The GB Journal and GBPS Newsletter will find this on the mailing address label of the envelope these publications arrive in. Members who have opted to receive notice of these via email will find their membership number included in the email sent out to advise them that new copies are available. (In order to download them, it's necessary to be logged in.)

You will also be asked to answer a question about the society as part of the registration form. You can find the answer in the list of previous office holders in the “History of the GBPS” section of the “Society Information” page – there is a link to this on the front page (in the “About the GBPS” section, top left). We're sorry to have to do this, but this measure has unfortunately proven necessary as a roadblock against numerous automated “spam” registrations that have to be deleted!

If you have any problems, please contact the website administrator using the “Contact Us” link at the foot of the page.

Registration on the website also signifies agreement to the general conditions for phpBB discussion boards given below.
