Pittsburgh is a popular place this year. Not only is the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association holding its annual conference there this month, in July the National Association of College and University Mail Services (NACUMS) will do the same, bringing higher-ed mail managers together to discuss postal issues.
NACUMS was founded in 1995 by mail service managers for the purpose of supporting, promoting and educating mail professionals working in academic settings. This year’s conference will include more than 20 educational sessions on mail, diversity, improving leadership skills and strategies.
Kelly Sigmon of the U.S. Postal Service will provide an update on the state of the USPS. Motivational speaker Jeff Tobe will present his message “Coloring Outside the Lines” in a presentation designed to help employees and employers create meaningful changes for customers.
A new topic this year will explore how domestic violence affects everyone. Attendees will learn how to better deal with its influence in their work environments.
The conference will begin with an awards banquet on the evening of July 9. The exhibit hall will be open that day and July 10 and will feature mail equipment, parcel lockers, package tracking, sorting machinery, and more. The event will wrap up with a membership meeting and a tour of the print and mail operations at both the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie-Mellon University.
The NACUMS conference will take place from July 9-12. Any higher-ed mail manager interested in attending can learn more at nacums.org.
