Postal Customer Council Membership

Membership in postal customer councils gives postal customers regular access to postal managers at the local level. PCC members also meet other mailers with similar mailing requirements. They learn how the Postal Service can meet their needs and solve their mailing problems.

Additionally, the PCC provides an avenue for exchanging ideas and suggestions on new product or service applications. Many money-saving ideas have resulted from PCC membership through customer networking and interaction at organized meetings and seminars.

PCC members also benefit from the resources and support provided by local postal managers and area mailers. Both can provide staff and equipment to assist councils in developing innovative programs using state-of-the-art technology.

Finally, a mutual understanding among mailers from other councils often results from PCC membership. Many PCC members have formed close bonds of cooperation after meeting one another at these gatherings. Some members communicate regularly to obtain answers to questions and to provide insight into various ways of handling postal processing and delivery issues.

PCC members have also helped each other by sharing equipment and knowledge at critical mailing times. Some PCC's have even established a Postal Improvement Committee to provide advice and counsel to their members for improving their mail center operations.
