PCC Offers Winning Combination

Miami Postmaster Enrique (Rick) Suarez (center) provided a tour of the Miami P&DC to business customers who attended a Miami-Dade County PCC seminar on Direct Mail.

On March 15, the Miami-Dade County Postal Customer Council (MDCPCC) hosted an educational seminar, “Direct Mail 101," and a Miami Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC) tour. It's a winning combination!

The MDCPCC used Direct Mail to invite customers who needed a refresher on the subject matter or who wanted to market their new businesses. 

Miami Postmaster Enrique (Rick) Suarez opened the meeting, thanking sponsors Heavy Graphics Marketing, for designing the mailpiece that reached over 2,500 customers and Southeastern which printed the promotional flyer. It was a joint effort to help customers market their business and learn the value of the mail. 

Suarez told the group "mail is not going away" as he passed around the Irresistible Mail booklet that promotes postal technology.
Following Suarez was Southeastern Domain Expert Cathy Brewer who presented the “Direct Mail 101" seminar. Smart Target Marketing Specialist Bud Henderson gave a presentation on mailing lists.

South Florida District Marketing Manager Juan Nadal spoke about current postal technologies, as well as new technologies on the horizon. He also briefed attendees on the National Postal Forum (May 21 - 24) 

Miami P&DC Plant Manager Juan Gonzalez joined Suarez in narrating the tour.

“It’s a whole new world back here (referring to the processing plant),” stated one of the attendees.  

The Miami-Dade County PCC, Broward County PCC and PCC of Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast work together to promote the Postal Service and its products and services.

A 'Touching' Tribute: Total Solar Eclipse Stamp:

The Total Solar Eclipse stamp will be issued June 20 to commemorate the eclipse that will occur in the United States August 21.
The stamp will show an eclipse that transforms into an image of the moon from the heat of a finger. This is the first U.S. stamp application of thermochromic ink, the technology that makes the transformation possible.
Tens of millions of people in the United States hope to view the eclipse, a rare event that has not been seen on U.S. mainland since 1979. The eclipse will travel a narrow path, running west to east from Oregon to South Carolina. Portions of 14 states will be included.
The stamp image is a 2006 photograph taken by Fred Espenak, an Arizona astrophysicist who also is known as "Mr. Eclipse.”
The back of the stamp pane provides a map of the August 21 eclipse path and times it may appear in some locations.

Celebrating Women in the USPS

PMG Megan J. Brennan opened the Women’s History Month-themed panel discussion, “Transcending Postal Generations.”

The Postal Service is continuing its long tradition of helping women employees advance in their careers, USPS leaders said during a panel discussion this week.

The Women's History Month-themed event, which was held at headquarters in Washington, DC, highlighted the integral role women play throughout the organization.

USPS employs more than 288,000 women, or about 45 percent of its workforce.

“The diversity of the Postal Service is our strength,” said PMG Megan J. Brennan, who opened the discussion. “The real value is diversity of thought. That’s our competitive advantage.”

The panelists were Corporate Communications VP Janice Walker, Regulatory Pricing Review Manager Cynthia Sanchez-Hernandez, Product Support Manager Imelda Bruce, Architect and Engineer Lily Hwang and Chief Human Resources Officer Jeffrey Williamson. Chief Information Officer Kristin Seaver delivered closing remarks.

The advice offered by the participants included:
  • Find a mentor. Young or old, new or experienced, male or female — find someone you respect, keep your mind open and learn from their experiences. 
  • Do your job well. Be enthusiastic and engaged. 
  • Listen. Receive feedback graciously — there is often wisdom in others’ advice. 
  • Seek opportunities. They may be challenging and unexpected, but give it your all. 
  • Expand horizons. Read books about successful women, join professional organizations and volunteer to develop and grow.

Informed Delivery® in South Florida

The Postal Service is doing something new - and digital - with mail, and employees are invited to give it a try and help spread the word.
What Is It?   

Informed Delivery® is an optional and free feature that lets residential consumers see a daily preview of their household’s letter-sized mailpieces that will be arriving soon. Informed Delivery has been piloted for several years and is now expanding nationwide, with our service area as part of the initial expansion.

How Does It Work?

We use existing processes to gather digital images of the exterior of letter-sized mailpieces as they are processed through automation equipment. Consumers that sign up for Informed Delivery receive an email notification, which includes these images, to see what will be arriving in their physical mailbox soon. Utilizing their online dashboard, users can also view mailpiece images for their household for the past seven delivery days.

Who Can Sign Up?

The expansion is being rolled out in phases. You can find out if Informed Delivery is available in your ZIP Code™ by using the ZIP Code lookup feature on If your ZIP Code is active, click “Sign Up” and follow the prompts to see if your individual delivery address is eligible for Informed Delivery. Sign up is voluntary and must be completed off the clock. As with My USPS®, an identity verification process is required.

What Can I Do To Help?  

Employees can help spread the word about Informed Delivery. The feature will soon be marketed to consumers in our ZIP Code areas. As consumers learn about the feature, you may receive questions.  Some materials – such as brochures and pocket pads – will soon be provided to offices.  All employees can help educate consumers, and one recommendation is to direct consumers to the Informed Delivery website (above), which has an extensive list of FAQs.

“Informed Delivery is one of the most exciting innovations the Postal Service offers.  I encourage all employees to sign up, give it a try, and then tell family, friends, and customers about it,” said District Manager Jeffery Taylor. “With this feature, we continue our effort to make every customer experience a positive one.”

Postal Reform Update

A U.S. House of Representatives committee approved a postal reform bill on March 16.

The U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has approved the postal reform bill introduced last month.

In a statement, PMG Megan J. Brennan thanked the committee members who introduced, co-sponsored and passed the legislation.

“This bipartisan bill is the product of reasonable and fiscally responsible compromise and represents a significant step toward returning the Postal Service to a position of financial stability that all stakeholders agree is necessary,” the PMG said.

Enactment of the legislation, along with a favorable resolution of the Postal Regulatory Commission’s 10-year pricing system review and continued aggressive management actions to control costs and grow revenue, will “enable the Postal Service to meet its financial obligations and continue to provide affordable, reliable and secure delivery service to every business and home in America. We look forward to continuing to work with the House and Senate and our stakeholders to get a postal reform bill passed this Congress,” she said.

The PMG’s full statement is available on the USPS Newsroom site. Brennan also discussed the legislation in an op-ed published this week in The Hill, a Capitol Hill newspaper.
