ALPCA, the Automobile License Plate Collectors Association, was founded
in 1954. We are an
organization dedicated to the promotion of license plate collecting and
research, the exchange of information and plates, as well as all of the
benefits of sharing a common hobby interest with others throughout the
ALPCA is far and away the largest license plate collectors organization in
the world. ALPCA has about 3000 current members from 50 states and 19
countries. Our annual international conventions are typically attended by
nearly 500 collectors. In addition we have dozens of smaller
regional meets all over the country.
What you get when you join ALPCA
ALPCA and its members are very professional and honest. When joining
ALPCA you become part of a very large and respected fellowship of
license plate collectors, governed by a Board of Directors
that is elected on a rotating basis. If you enjoy buying, collecting or trading
license plates, when you're a member of ALPCA, dealing with another ALPCA
member is like dealing with a member of your family.
PLATES Magazine (formerly known as the ALPCA Register) is the official
publication of ALPCA. Published six times a year,
this 68-page magazine features license plate history, current news, member profiles,
a calendar of events, convention coverage, and other valuable
information. There's also over 10
pages of classified ads every issue, a great way to buy, sell, and trade plates for
your collection. Back issues of ALPCA's publication are available for sale too.
ALPCA members in good standing also have access to online resources
via this website, including an electronic membership roster,
and our world-famous online License Plate Archives.
