The International Society of
World Wide Stamp Collectors

Welcome to the ISWSC

The International Society of Worldwide Stamp Collectors serves the interests of all worldwide collectors. It strives to promote the fun and fascination of worldwide stamp collecting to young and old alike, and has an active outreach program serving youth, their leaders and beginners of all ages.

Look at the benefits we have to offer. We'd like to hear from you!

Board Elections

the terms of office of various board positions are expiring at the end of 2015 and we are advertising those positions in accordance with our bylaws. These are not especially difficult or time-consuming jobs.

All activities of the board take place on-line so you must have a computer. Up for election or re-election are the positions of:

  • president
  • vice president
  • secretary
  • director of public relations
  • director of membership; and
  • director of stamp outreach
The incumbents in these positions (with the exception of the current Vice President who can't run based on our by-laws) are willing to serve another term. The vice president's duties are to run meetings in the absence of the president, offer suggestions and feedback expected of any board member and assume the position of president when the current president is unable to serve. Please contact Joanne by December 15th if you are interested.

About Us

Responding to a letter by Society founder Aubrey Dunne published in Linn's Stamp News, seasoned worldwide collectors let it be known that they were tired of the "amateur" image given them as non-specialists. The foundations were laid in 1980 for what is now the International Society of Worldwide Stamp Collectors.
