The Association of Scottish Philatelic Societies (ASPS) is a collection of local societies from throughout Scotland whose aim is to further the study of Stamps, Postcards and Postal History. ASPS is formed by each society nominating a delegate who attends up to 3 meetings per year on their society's behalf.

There are currently 45 local societies throughout Scotland of whom 9 are specialist societies and who have meetings throughout most of the year. If you are interested in joining a society have a look at the affiliated society page of the website to see where your local society is and whats on.

Each year the association organises a National Exhibition (commonly called Congress), usually in April, at which a number of dealers attend in order that philatelists can purchase items and also to display their collections, either competitively or non-competitively. Congress is hosted each year by a different society and that society usually produces a cover and/or postcard specifically for the occasion.
Full details of all societies affiliated to ASPS and details of all Congresses past, present and future can be found on the website.
