Our sessions: 2023-24 USPS Mailing Promotions presenting the various options available and offered tips on layering promos for best discounts presented by experts Roman Godlewski, USPS and Kevin Yost, TGI Direct, Inc.    It was a great prelude into our topic presentation; Insights on Integrating Generative A.I.  by Rick Ryan, Pitney Bowes Fellow.  This session impressed that AI is a tool to amplify human creativity and ingenuity and how to integrate it into their marketing plans.  Our guest speaker Eric Henry, VP, Retail and Delivery Operations, presented on status of the USPS emphasizing what the PMG’s 10-year plan is for the Postal Service, intriguing information for all which highlighted where we are heading into the coming years. Our vendors supported us with their own display tables and were introduced by our executive board.  Each vendor was given the opportunity to publicize their business and what their specialty is in the mail industry.

Annual Golf Outing - With the Detroit PCC - APCD - GMA

On August 7 2023, The Detroit PCC, partnered with Graphic Media Alliance (GMA) and The Advertising Production Club of Detroit  (APCD) for our 28th Annual Golf Outing at the Links of Novi.  It was a huge success as our golfers turned out for an afternoon of golf and fun in semi-great weather and the Links of Novi course was stunning. This year our lead sponsor was Graphic Media Alliance, who not only golfed with us but with their sponsorship helped us reach our goals.   

Because of the generosity of our golfers and sponsors, our organizations will continue to offer educational programming to business mailers and newcomers engaged in learning more about marketing using print media.  Our programs are targeted to increase knowledge of the importance of what print mail is and how it effects the marketing world.
