Detroit PCC Winners of the March 2021 PCC Spotlight Award!

PCC Spotlight Mar2021   

 Detroit PCC  (Detroit MI)

Congratulations to the Detroit PCC for being chosen as the March 2021 PCC “Spotlight”.  You can learn more about their PCC below.

 Detroit PCC (Detroit, MI)

 Date founded: 1994

Members: Approximately 300 active members that covers all of Southeastern Michigan

Awards:

  • PCC Innovation of the Year Award – Gold Level 2020
  • PCC Membership Program Excellence Award – Silver Level 2020
  • PCC Innovation of the Year- Bronze Award on 2017
  • PCC Premier Certificate Award - Gold Level Winners since 2012  
  • PCC Premier Platinum Award Winners since 2016

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the Detroit PCC has remained actively engaged communicating with their membership via email, phone and zoom virtual webinars.  Although they had to postpone their large in-person events; the annual Golf outing, plant tour, Coney Dog Buffet, and Holiday Gala in 2020, the Detroit PCC continued their success by hosting various virtual events such as a Political Mail Campaign, National PCC Day, and “Training Elves to Help Santa” which stimulated membership participation with the USPS Operation Santa program. 

The Detroit PCC kicked off 2021 by hosting an annual Rate Change webinar in January and a Seamless Acceptance Overview in March.  They have also been focusing on the planning of an “Essential Worker Thank You” banner program.  Throughout the month of March, this program supported by District Manager, Rick Moreton will honor and thank employees at the Detroit Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC), the Pontiac Metroplex, and the Allen Park Network Distribution Center (NDC) for their unwavering commitment of providing the best possible service to our customers.  An ongoing effort, this program will continue honoring employees at local delivery Post Offices throughout the year.  The Detroit PCC also conducts a “Stamp of the Month” program promoting education and stamp sales which also helps increase postal revenue, and in April, they will host their annual Political Mail Educational webinar.

With the CDC guidelines for social distancing in mind, the Detroit PCC is optimistically planning a return to in-person social events beginning with “Detroit Tiger Day” and their annual golf outing which is in collaboration with the Advertising Production Club of Detroit.  Both events are set for August 2021.

In addition, they are working on future Marketing and Manufacturing events in collaboration with Oakland University.  They also look forward to supporting the NALC 2021 Food Drive.

The Detroit PCC is currently led by:

  • Postal Co Chair – Donald Dombrow Jr., Detroit, MI Postmaster (A)
  • Industry Co Chair – Paul Brotz, ColorPoint Print

Some “fun facts” about the Detroit Area that you may not know are:

  2. Detroit has the second largest theatre district in the U.S.
  3. Martin Luther King Jr’s infamous "I Have A Dream" speech was delivered during the March on Washington on August 28, 1963.  However, some of the speech is similar to his speech he gave in Detroit following the city's Walk to Freedom March during the Civil Rights Movement on June 23,1963.
  4. Points of interest in the Art-Center are the Detroit Science Center, the Charles Wright Museum of African American History (which is home to the world's largest African American culture exhibit), Detroit Public Library, and the College for Creative Studies.
  5. Birthplace of Motown Records in the 50’s, and Techno in the 80’s.
