Thursday, September 15, 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. EDT
Through our partnership with the National Newspaper Association Foundation (NNAF), News/Media Alliance members receive free access to extensive postal-related resources, events and materials as well as webinars to train newspaper employees for best uses of the mail in a rapidly changing postal environment.*
Description: As the U.S. Postal Service continues to automate verification of bulk mail, it is increasingly important that mailings are prepared according to the latest sorting rules and precisely match postage statements. At minimum, that requires properly coded and sequenced addresses. In this session, we’ll go deep on addressing, bundling, sacks, trays and more. Join Brad Hill, CEO of Interlink, to learn the right way to handle addressing and mail prep for an optimized newspaper mailing.
