Advocacy

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. These can include sending a letter or email to members of Congress, to the Postmaster General and Board of Governors, or to the Postal Regulatory Commission. Alliance Board members also participate in face-to-face meetings with these officials and have on occasion testified before Congress. Whatever the action, Washington officials pay close attention to the voice of nonprofits that perform critically important missions throughout our nation. The Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers is known as one of the most effective advocates on the postal community primarily because of its members.

Representation Before the Postal Regulatory Commission: The Alliance is the primary representative of nonprofits mailers in postal rate litigation before the Postal Regulatory Commission. Our success in prior proceedings is well-documented.

Representation on Capitol Hill: The Alliance is a highly-respected advocate that works with Congress, USPS and other agencies to protect nonprofit postal rates.

Representation Before the USPS: As a member of the USPS Mailers’ Technical Advisory Committee and other task force groups, the Alliance assists in developing new regulations and methods. Members of the Alliance learn of these developments in advance.
