Since its inception in 1920, the association has a tradition of encouraging members to share information with their fellow members. That tradition continues today by offering members numerous ways to share information with one another, including:
- AMSP listserves — these peer-to-peer, e-mail based discussion groups let members get answers to their questions on a 24/7 basis from their colleagues within the association. in the five years since AMSP’s general and fulfillment listserves were published, more than 15,000 discussions have taken place on these boards. The most useful of these discussions are also archived here in the website so that other members may share the benefits of prior conversations.
- Conference roundtables -- all AMSP conferences feature dedicated time for members to share information with one another through topic-specific roundtables. In addition, conferences provide a number of other, less formal opportunties for members to share their knowledge and expertise with one another.
- Articles in “PostScripts” — The majority of content included in AMSP’s flagship newsletter is contributed by other members of the association who wish to share their experiences with their colleagues in the industry.
- Postal Points, published 18 times per year, is AMSP’s newsletter that deals exclusively with current and pending postal and delivery issues. Here you will find the facts and analysis of developing postal issues. Members frequently say they get critical postal information from Postal Points weeks — and sometimes even months — before they hear about it from USPS.
