Spring is in the air, and we’re not letting all those allergens keep us down. We had a great time at eTail West last week, and now we’re gearing up for our reception sponsorship at the National Postal Forum (NPF) in Washington, D.C. The event brings together professionals from all aspects of the mailing industry, and acts as a combination educational conference/trade show – a great mix! You’ll find us at the Forum from March 16-19 at the Gaylord National Hotel – are you attending? If so, be sure to put the Sunday evening Welcome & Areas’ Reception on your agenda – we’re a sponsor! Attendees will be able to check out the beautiful space at the Gaylord, and mingle with colleagues from across several United States Postal Service (USPS) Areas. Some of you may ask, “What is the National Postal Forum?” Here’s some interesting background and history about the organization:
  • NPF is a not-for-profit educational corporation established in 1968 by a few dedicated postal customers and mailers looking to build an ongoing partnership with the USPS.
  • Mission: “To assist the USPS in building relationships with and educating mailers in the most effective and efficient use of the products and services offered by the USPS.”
  • Providing a premier educational venue for the mailing industry’s vast range of professionals has been its goal from day one, and the conference takes place once a year in the spring to facilitate those educational opportunities.
  • More than 95% of the attendees are from the United States, with a number of professionals visiting from Canada, Mexico, the U.K., France, Argentina, Singapore and Australia.
Four full days of instructional workshops and networking events are designed to support a foundation for greater business success among mailers today. This year’s theme of Stronger Together highlights the importance of uniting top resources within the mailing industry in an effective way that propels businesses forward. More than 130 workshops across four industry-focused tracks are sure to keep us busy! We’re very excited to sponsor the Welcome Reception, and hope to see some of you out there! Please let us know if you’d like to set up a time to meet while you’re at the show.
