The annual meeting is required by NAPM bylaws for the express purpose of holding an annual business meeting with the members of the NAPM. Since this is a large multi-day event hosted in various parts of the country, there is a lot of effort required to accomplish the event.

Activities include everything from property selection to meeting theme, format, and event planning, to notification and registrations.

The committee is responsible for the development and dissemination of information and educational services for our members to remain current in industry and US Postal service changes. The committee uses Internet messaging, telecom, and webinar mediums to deliver information and educational presentations to the membership. They use standing monthly meetings (general membership) and each quarter there is a small business member meeting designed to address specific areas of the smaller business member. The committee is responsible for the development of meeting agendas, meeting materials, obtaining presenters (USPS, Industry, subject matter, or member speakers), and facilitation of the sessions. The committee also evaluates participation reports to develop additional member needs, and ensures the posting of information and educational materials to NAPM website.
