Governance

We are a self-governing group with a common interest of the philately of the Transvaal and South African Republic. Our membership is open to anyone throughout the World. We also publish research findings relevant to these topics. Led by officers who have specific roles, our committee members are elected annually at a business meeting held in the UK when reports on the previous year’s work are presented and discussed. These are normally published in the The Transvaal Philatelist.

Annual subscriptions are sought for membership and access to its benefits, in keeping with the cost of maintaining the work of the TSC. Normally the work of the officers is scrutinised by the committee and approved where necessary by an annual meeting. There is no quorum for such a meeting. Future policy is initiated by the Chairperson, Treasurer and Editor but pursued with the support of the committee.

Although we do not currently have a constitution, we are developing one which we hope to implement in  2021.
