This is the event of the YEAR! We are inviting current members and industry professionals to our “First Annual Member Appreciation Meeting” on the Potomac aboard the Odyssey III. For this special event our Guest Speaker will be Lance Humphries, Managing Director of MailCom. We will also be honoring our two past Presidents, Isaac Webb and Dana McCormick and meeting MSMA National President Barbara Fahy. This will be an event to remember with Education, Networking, Excellent Food, Beautiful Views and, I shouldn’t say this and don’t mention it to anyone, but it will be a FUN TIME, as well.
PRESENTATION: Do you REALLY know what is going on?
Lance will provide his special insight on the state of the mailing/distribution industry with a focus on job trends. The presentation will discuss where there is growth in jobs, in what sectors and where jobs are being lost. Join him and your fellow professionals to get the inside scoop, find out what will the future look like and how you can plan to be one step ahead. Also included will be the latest information on the USPS, MSMA and MAILCOM Las Vegas.
