You Belong in NAPUS!

Congratulations on your appointment as Postmaster or your assignment as an officer-in-charge (OIC). Now, take the second most important step in your career by joining the National Association of Postmasters of the United States.

Would more than eight out of 10 Postmasters pay dues to NAPUS if they weren’t getting their money’s worth in representation and services? Certainly not!

Founded in 1898—more than a century ago!—NAPUS continues a proud tradition of responsibly representing the interests of our nation’s Postmasters.

Postmasters—both active and retired—belong in NAPUS! And so do OICs.
