NPF VIP. Ramela Younekian, Sierra Coastal District’s marketing manager, is the first employee to receive a complimentary registration to this year’s National Postal Forum (NPF).
Younekian earned the registration after recruiting five new business customers to attend the event, which will be held in Indianapolis from May 5-8.
This is the fourth consecutive year Younekian has achieved the honor, the only person to do so.
“I always talk to my customers about the importance of keeping their employees up to date on the latest changes in the mailing and shipping industry. NPF is the perfect place to continue that education and to find ways to mail more efficiently,” she said.
Younekian also visits potential customers in person.
“You can’t get people to NPF through emails and phone calls only,” she said. “Once they are interested you need to go in person with collateral to close the deal. It’s about the relationships.”

In the know. The Postal Service wants managers, supervisors and others to tell craft employees about Link mobile, the Link site’s mobile-friendly version.
Link mobile offers the same content available on Link’s desktop version — including benefits information, news reports and feature stories — but in a format that’s easy to read on smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.
The site is helpful to employees who don’t have regular access to postal computers but want to stay in the know.
Employees can access the site at www.usps.link, where they can also subscribe to weekly emails with the latest Link highlights.
