How to Join

Welcome to JAPOS! Use this PDF membership application to tell us something about yourself. Don't worry--nothing too personal. This is a hobby, and we like to share our collecting interests.


Dues for each calendar year are $7 (seven USD). There are two ways to send dues payments or donations:

  1. Mail your check and the completed form to our Secretary-Treasurer.

  2. Pay online from this page by using PayPal. If paying this way, please also send an email to our Secretary-Treasurer so that he may acknowledge your new or renewed membership.

PayPal Note: Currently, JAPOS cannot set up its own PayPal account because our EIN is too old and it takes a long time to get a new one. Funds paid from this webpage will temporarily be sent to Cynthia Scott dba Anon E Mouse Cachets and then be transferred to the JAPOS checking account managed by our Secretary-Treasurer.

Source for Checklists

Are you looking for a checklist of your favorite author, journalist, or poet? While it's true that you can buy one from the American Topical Association if you are a member, it might be easier to use our own in-club service.

Marianne Gelbert can mail you a checklist on practically any writer you have in mind. Our president, Clete Delvaux, recently learned that Marianne's service costs have not changed. She still charges ten cents a printed page plus postage. Clete says his 5-page checklist on Luis Camoes, for example, cost him just 50 cents plus 66 cents postage. What a deal!
