Dear Detroit PCC members,

The National Postal Forum is fast approaching and this year will be held in Indianapolis IN, May 5th through May 8th. This is the first time it is being held in Indianapolis and it has been a while since it has been in the Midwest. If you haven’t had a chance to attend a National Postal Forum in the past, please take time to review the events and seminars at https://npf.org to help move your business forward.

While the NPF is right around the corner, the Detroit PCC still has several events left on our 2018-2019 calendar:

April 30th – A webinar on how to make the most of a Non-Profit permit; which will include how to apply, basic mail piece design and managing prospects and donor lists.

May 22nd – A tour of the Pontiac Metroplex with a special presentation on Folded Self-Mailers and Every Door Direct Mail. This event is one of our member favorites, as the United States Postal Services provides a guided tour of one of their largest operating centers.

We kick-off our 2019-2020 calendar year on June 21stwith our 23rd Annual Golf Outing. The past few years we have joined up with the Advertising Production Club of Detroit at the Links of Novi and the event has sold-out quickly. Please don’t wait to sign-up and have your company sponsor a hole as we will have well over 144 golfers at this year’s event.

To register for any of our events please go to www.detroitpcc.com. We look forward to seeing you at our next event!

Regards,

Paul Brotz
Detroit PCC Industry Co-Chair
