NAPM Committees

There are certain functions and services that the association, acting in concert with its membership, can perform – but to be successful in its efforts, the NAPM requires the support and involvement of its members. It needs the collective thinking of all concerned to formulate plans, and it requires the physical effort of its membership to put those plans into operation. This is our true differentiator, the NAPM doesn't want to make decisions and representations based on what we "think” is best for you, but what "we collectively” think is best for not only your business but everyone using mail as an important part of their business. We don't do things for you; we do things with you (with your support, expertise, cooperation, etc.), together we do things to protect your business interest and improve the mailing industry.


The NAPM does this through a variety of ways; we hold regularly scheduled member meetings where we can share our thoughts and ideas and we also form committees to address ongoing business needs or take on and resolve short-term business problems.


The Board of Directors has four standing committees; Membership, Annual Conference, Strategic Planning, and Member Education & Information. These committees are ongoing meetings that are chaired by Board of Director members.


The NAPM also creates ad-hoc committees to perform activities in the interest of the NAPM membership. These committees generally have short terms and specific objectives that are usually focused on solving specific business needs of our industry segment. In some cases, especially when the Postal Service has long term efforts like Seamless Acceptance going on, the NAPM will form a committee to stay engaged with the effort to ensure our interests are represented and protected.


Serving on a committee is a great way to give something to the association and the industry. It also is a good way to increase your own network within the association and industry.
