Two Sierra Coastal District NPF winners

Sounds like a winner. Two USPS employees have received complimentary registrations for this year’s National Postal Forum, the mailing industry’s largest annual conference.

District Marketing Manager Ramela Younekian and Acting Business Development Specialist Da Shiek Woodard each earned the registrations by successfully recruiting five new business customers to attend the event.

Younekian and Woodard both work in Pacific Area’s Sierra Coastal District.

The USPS Employee Customer Recruitment Program guidelines on the NPF Blue page explain how employees can earn complimentary registration to the forum, which will be held in San Antonio from May 6-9.

Weather update. The Postal Service is continuing recovery efforts in the aftermath of the winter storm that struck the East Coast last week. The USPS Service Alerts site has the latest updates.
