Not already a member? There are many benefits to being a member of the United Postmasters and Managers of America. First, and perhaps most importantly, you become part of a network of Postmasters dedicated to the United States Postal Service and to helping one another succeed. As you attend meetings, whether they are three-digit meetings, State Conventions, or National Conventions, you will meet other Postmasters with similar questions, problems and solutions. If you do not wish to attend meetings, you can still network with us by phone or email. 
The network is stronger if you are a part of it.
