NAPM 2018 Annual Conference

 

 Registration is Now OPEN!!!

 

NAPM's 2018 Annual Conference will be held in Orlando, FL from February 20-22, 2018 (with golf outing on Monday, February 19, 2018). More information will be posted here as it becomes available, so check back regularly!

The NAPM has just announced the overall theme for its 2018 Annual Conference: “Streamlining for the Future – 2018 and Beyond.”

The 2018 Annual Conference comes at a time of rapid change and potential disruption within our industry, and there is no better time to make sure you have the latest information to prepare for upcoming changes that will impact your business. 2018 will bring not only an annual USPS price change (which is likely to include changes in workshare discounts), but also potentially significant regulatory changes are on the horizon that could impact how postage prices are set in the future. There also are new mail verification processes going into place, and economic pressures on both the USPS and the industry will continue to drive the need for mail quality and operational efficiency on both sides.


As always, NAPM members can expect the Annual Conference to bring together not only our NAPM community, but critical representatives from the USPS, its oversight/regulators, industry experts and others. Our conference is noted for the great networking opportunities it provides, not only between our MSP and vendor members, but also with those setting the postal policies and processes that impact your business every day. NAPM’s Annual Conference Committee (ACC) is working hard to finalize details for the 2018 event, but we can assure our members that the content will surpass even last year’s great conference! Agenda and speaker details will be announced soon, so be sure to check your NAPM emails and the NAPM web site regularly.


The NAPM Annual Conference will feature presentations and discussions from the USPS' top decision makers and other key regulatory and oversight representatives, as well as our expert members who are leading NAPM’s working committee efforts, and our vendor members on key solutions they are developing to help your business with current and future challenges. As a sneak peek…we can tell you the following will be included in our event agenda:

  • Back by popular demand from last year’s attendees, Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) Chair Robert Taub will speak on the 10-year review of the USPS’ rates structure and other regulatory matters.
  • Top USPS officials including Postmaster General Megan Brennan (invited) and Pritha Mehra, Vice President of Business Mail Entry and Payment Technologies (confirmed), along with members of her staff will present at the event and engage with NAPM members on critical business process changes such as the new Move Update verification process to be implemented in February 2018, Seamless Acceptance, and managing mail quality appeals/disputes.
  • Responding to our member surveys asking for content to help their business grow, the 2018 Annual Conference will include sessions on growth opportunities such as parcels and parcel returns and managing promotions for customers to encourage mail volume use and growth
  • As always, NAPM’s committee chairs and members will present information on how their businesses are managing and preparing for these changes


Whether it's hearing from responsible leaders, postal/mailer education seminars, networking and idea exchange activities, or seeing the latest vendor offerings, the 2018 conference is a MUST ATTEND event for those who want to be prepared to learn more about growing their business and managing the changes to come in 2018!
