NAPM's 2021 Virtual Annual Conference

Thriving Through Industry Changes


February 16-25, 2021

Attend Wherever You Are, No Matter How Far!

NAPM’s 2021 Annual Conference is going virtual!  Our event dates are below -- attend one, some, or all the dates for the same low registration price!  Wherever you are, we will be there, bringing you the great speakers, education panels, and vendor solutions that you are used to seeing at NAPM's in-person annual event.   As always, speakers will include USPS executives and others responsible for postal regulatory/oversight.  Education sessions will help attendees learn what is coming on specific USPS programs as well as potential growth opportunities.  Our event sponsors will share the latest vendor solutions, and we are working to bring some social networking opportunities to the virtual event as well!   And the event being virtual provides NAPM members and others to have more employees participate without the expense of travel!


According to our member survey results, members preferred that we not go over 3-4 hours on a given date for the event.  So in order to ensure that we can provide a similar amount of great speakers, panels, sponsor presentations and more, we are going with 6 event dates (below) for about 3.5 hours each day.  Members registering for the event will pay one $99 per person fee and be able to attend any or all of the event dates!  Come for the whole thing, or come for the dates where the agenda is of the most interest to you (but keep in mind that "final" agenda details likely will not be in place until close to the event dates).  And this is a great opportunity to have folks in your company who normally aren't able to attend NAPM's in-person event participate in the Feb. 2021 Virtual Annual Conference! 

  • Tues Feb 16 @ 11:00 am – 2:30 pm EST
  • Wed Feb 17 @ 11:00 am – 2:30 pm EST
  • Thurs Feb 18 @ 11:00 am – 2:30 pm EST 
  • Tues Feb 23 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm EST
  • Wed Feb 24 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm EST
  • Thurs Feb 25 @ 11:00 am – 2:30 pm EST  (Note time change!)

Our 2021 conference theme, “Thriving Through Industry Changes,” encapsulates what our industry has experienced during a challenging 2020, as well as preparing members for changes that may come in 2021.  Not only are NAPM members faced with operating during pandemic conditions, 2021 undoubtedly will bring even more change to our industry environment.  The USPS is currently going through organizational restructuring under the leadership of a new Postmaster General, with a new strategic plan in development.  Comprehensive postal reform legislation and the PRC's 10 year review regulatory changes are looming.  Continuing changes in the mail mix with declines in mail volume and increases in parcel volume contribute to a significantly changing environment -- both for the USPS and for our industry.   Both the Seamless Acceptance "mandate" and price incentive will be implemented in 2021, and there is more to come!
