The 2019 Postal Customer Council (PCC) Awards Ceremony took place at Postal Headquarters in July. Miami-Dade County PCC Administrator Mirtha Uriarte and PCC Industry Executive Board Member Cathy Brewer of Southeastern Printing participated in three categories: “PCC Postal Service Member of the Year,” “Education Program Excellence,” and “Mentor of the Year.” Even though MDCPCC did not return home with a crystal trophy as in past years, they did return with a wealth of knowledge and new techniques setting them up for a successful 2020.
MDCPCC Executive Board members, consisting of postal executives/managers and mailing industry leaders, work very closely and recently have implemented new ideas to promote membership growth.
“We are providing business customers the opportunity to engage in educational courses, including a ‘Certified Direct Mail Professional’ course that will provide them the strengths needed to grow their business to the next level,” said Uriarte.
The MDCPCC also has reached out to colleges and universities with collateral promoting the Academic Outreach Program. This program provides graduates an opportunity to enter the workforce with postal knowledge on mailpiece design, the ability to implement innovations, and so much more, according to Uriarte.
“This program provides a tremendous head start after graduation, providing an opportunity to obtain better positions,” said Uriarte.
