|The International Badgers Club|
|Chapters, Sections & Branches|
The Australian Chapter is a body that all members in Australia, are automatically members of. In Australia we have members in almost all states and territories who are active collectors and swap with many of their counterparts in other countries all over the world . Membership is open to all ages , from beginners to advanced collectors. We also produce our own newsletter, "Badgers Brew", which is free to all Australian members and available by subscription to members overseas . It keeps collectors of Australian Badges up to date with all the latest release badges and badges that are now no longer used , as well as Hints and Tips on collecting .
The Club holds regular meetings in various states with an Annual meeting taking place in a central location for most members . Members attend all Major Events such as Jamboree's , Ventures and Moot's putting on Displays and giving advice on how to collect badges.
The Australian Chapter also conducts Postal Auctions and Set Price Sales giving members the chance to obtain that elusive badge they may be hunting as well as the opportunity to dispose of excess badges that they may have collected over many years . Further enquiries available from the National Secretary (see below).
