Michigan License Plate Collectors Association

license plates

MLPCA is an organization dedicated to the license plate collecting hobby, and the promotion of fraternizing with other license plate collectors for good fellowship and the furtherance of the hobby.

Our bimonthly newsletter includes historical articles on Michigan license plates, photos from our members' collections, and exclusive buy-sell-trade opportunities not advertised to the general public.

Membership in MLPCA is on a calendar year basis. New members joining after July 31 may join at half the annual rate.
