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. 

What have we been doing for our industry membership? 

The Detroit PCC kicked off 2022 by hosting an annual Rate Change webinar in January and co-hosting multiple hybrid webinars through April and the rest of the year.  They have also been focusing on supporting the “Essential Worker Thank You” banner program.  Throughout the year this program supported by Michigan 1 District Manager, Rick Moreton honors and thanks 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.  

We have been sharing multiple video webinars from around the country to entertain and educate.   See our monthly offerings located on our  NEWS page.  The Detroit PCC will be hosting our annual golf outing Monday, August 1st which is in collaboration with the Advertising Production Club of Detroit.  We will host our annual  “Detroit Tiger Day”   August 5th, 2022 where we take on The Tampa Bay Rays. 

Friday, September 23, 2022  we are celebrating  National PCC Day which will be at the NDC Processing facility in Allen Park MI.    We will host messaging from the USPS Postmaster General Louis DeJoy  with a  luncheon and a plant tour.  A favorite of our PCC membership.    Register your team and we welcome you as a sponsor. 

In addition, we are working on future Marketing and Manufacturing events in collaboration with Oakland University.  We also look forward to supporting the NALC 2022 Food Drive on May 14, 2022  where across the country our delivery carriers will be collecting non-perishable foods from our customers as they deliver the days mail.    Awesome Program.
