In Meta’s Words

“The Alliance provides Consumer Reports (CR) with access, direction, and intelligence, and reinforces CR’s voice, values, unique attributes, and relevance by weighing in on urgent postal issues at Postal headquarters, on the Hill, and with trade associations. Through the Alliance, CR communicates strategically with Congressional leaders to support plans that would reasonably and effectively improve the business and financial footing, and to state objections to proposals that may be punitive to nonprofit mailers. The Alliance affords CR the opportunity to align with other nonprofit colleagues to respond to proposed changes to postal policy, rates, and procedures. Advocating for standards of quality and an operationally and financially efficient Postal Service in turn supports CR’s brand, competitive and financial strength. Any influence we can bring to bear that strengthens this distribution channel contributes to the success of our print publications, which are an essential part of CR’s impact and revenue.”
