Philippine Philatelic Federation
The Philippine Philatelic Federation is composed of stamp clubs in the country.
There used to be more member clubs than the current ones, which are as follows: International Philippine Philatelic Society, Filipinas Stamp Collectors' Club, APO Philatelic Society, Philippine Chinese Philatelic Society (based in Manila), Naga City Philatelic Society, and Cebu Philatelic Society. Did I miss one or two more?
At one time, in 2008 or thereabouts, the Mindanao Philatelic Society (Minphilsoc) was a member. Minphilsoc is a stamp club based in Cagayan de Oro City. It is an on-and-off, off-and-on stamp club founded in, if I'm not mistaken, 1995. I have no idea whether it's on...or off...this year!
The Philippine Philatelic Federation was incorporated in 1993 as a nonprofit, nonstock organization.
It is a member of the Federacion Internationale de Philatelie and the Federation of Inter-Asian Philately.
Current president is Mr. Antonio So.
