Meetings are held in various places, mainly in London at major exhibitions. Others are held outside London at philatelic events such as Midpex or where individual members are willing to organise and host them. Most meetings have two themes and members are encouraged to bring material relating to those themes. There is also a two yearly weekend meeting.
