The Society for Czechoslovak Philately (SCP) is an international organization founded in 1939 which is devoted to the collecting, study of, education, and publicizing all aspects of philately represented by geographic areas of the former Czechoslovakia.

SCP EVENTS IN 2018. The year 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of Czechoslovak independence and the 100th anniversary of the first Czechoslovak postage stamps, as well as the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic.  PRAGA 2018 International Philatelic Exhibition will be held from August 15 through August 18, 2018 and it is sure to be a most interesting and vibrant show that should be of particular interest to collectors of Czechoslovak philatelic material. We encourage our members to seriously consider attending PRAGA 2018 which will not only be a philatelic delight, but will also allow attendees to soak up the history and splendor of Prague. Information about PRAGA 2018 and the show hotel is available at

SCP will also be holding its annual convention at CHICAGOPEX 2018 which takes place from November 16 through November 18, 2018 at the Westin Chicago Northwest Hotel in Itasca, Illinois. We look forward to seeing our local members there and given the success of our members and the SCP at NAPEX 2017. We encourage our members to seriously consider exhibiting at CHICAGOPEX 2018.
