The Alliance is as strong as its members. And over the past 30 plus years its members have been very strong and effective advocates for the cause of nonprofit mail that is cost-effective. From time-to-time the Alliance leadership will ask Alliance board members, regular members, and sponsors to take specific actions to support an initiative that is critical to the future of nonprofit mail.
