The NPF Mission
The National Postal Forum (NPF), a not-for-profit educational corporation, was established in 1968 by a group of major postal customers/mailers who were committed to an ongoing partnership with the United States Postal Service.
The Forum's goal, then-as now, has been to provide education to business mailers and communication/feed-back between the USPS and its business customers for a more responsive and efficient mail communications system.
NPF's mission is "To assist the United States Postal Service in building relationships with and educating mailers in the most effective and efficient use of the products and services offered by the United States Postal Service."
The Forum is the mailing industry's premier educational venue, trade show and networking event for industry professionals. It provides business mailers with ongoing training and education, and helps them keep pace with the mailing industry's rapid progress. Held once a year in the spring, the Forum is a combination educational conference/trade show offering a wide range of opportunities for attendees.
The Forum works as a partner with the US Postal Service with the ultimate goal of a more efficient Postal Service thereby benefiting the entire USPS customer universe. To accomplish this goal the NPF facilitates educational opportunities by bringing the USPS together with its customers, suppliers and business partners. The NPF is the only industry organization that works directly with Postal Service managers to provide the most comprehensive educational and networking platform possible for meeting the needs of mailing industry and postal customers.
