Special Focus: Catalog Prospecting
The ACMA has been working closely with USPS VP Marketing Steve Monteith (at right) and Manager New Solutions Elke Reuning-Elliott (at left) to create a powerful incentive for catalog volume increases (greater prospecting opportunities). They will update attendees on where this work stands and what lies ahead to make it a reality. It’s a crucial session during the 10th Annual National Catalog Forum coming up in Washington, May 2-4, that you just can’t miss.
Meet the Postmaster General
In her annual address at the ACMA Forum, the Honorable PMG Megan Brennan (at right) will not only lay out her State of the Business on where she sees the USPS going this year, but she’ll also engage the audience on the key catalog-related issues that matter to you most. She’ll share her vision for catalogs in the mail and respond to all the questions time allows.
