Welcome to Ohio NAPUS

Our mission is to provide you, the members of the OHIO Chapter of the National Association of Postmasters of the United States, with the resources and information that will improve your working and retirement lives.

Will you make Legislative History ?


March 2016 marks the final time that NAPUS will hold its annual Legislative Conference in Washington DC. As you are all aware, NAPUS and the League of Postmasters will combine and become the United Postmasters and Managers of America (UPMA) next year. As of this writing, no plans are being made to replace our Legislative event with a hybrid meeting of both associations. So that being said, this is your last opportunity to join your fellow postmasters in Washington DC , letting our elected officials know how we stand on various issues pertaining to the Postal Service.
This year, the Ohio Chapter of NAPUS will reinstate providing a bus to transport postmasters to the event. As in past years, the bus will depart from the Old Dublin Post Office in suburban Columbus, then pick up more postmasters in the Ohio Valley Mall parking lot in St Clairsville  and then  proceed to the Conference hotel, located in Alexandria VA. This will occur on Saturday, March 12. We will return to Ohio, following the same route on Wednesday, March 16.
Interested? To help defray costs, the Chapter will contribute $400 to any NAPUS member who attends. You must register for the conference, attend the meetings and visit your congressional office on theTuesday during the conference to receive the stipend. IT IS A WIN-WIN DEAL. You help NAPUS educate our elected leaders, and you receive compensation to defray costs. You will also come home a better informed postmaster, educated on all of the pertinent  issues affecting your job, retirement issues and the USPS.
Here are the specifics of the trip in more detail:
  Saturday March 12 - Bus leaves Dublin OH at 8:00 am, arrives in St Clairsville at 10:00 am. Arrives at Conference Hotel at 5:30 pm.
  Sunday March 13  - Conference meetings begin 8:00am through 5 pm
  Monday March 14 - Break out meetings for officers. (if you are not an officer, this is your day for sight seeing) We schedule a training class in the evening to discuss the congressional visits on Tuesday.
  Tuesday March 15 - We go to Capitol Hill to visit our Congressmen.
  Wednesday March 16 - Board bus for trip back to Ohio, arriving in Dublin around 8:00 pm.
In addition to the above, Ohio NAPUS gets together and goes out to dinner one evening, and will be followed be a sight-seeing drive around Washington at night in our bus .  
We are chartering a 42 passenger bus for the trip.                                                             To reserve a seat on the bus you must:

President Leonardi reiterated Postmaster General Megan Brennan’s commitment that there will be no post office evaluations until FY 2016—using FY 2016 data—and implementation of any changes will not take effect until mid-FY 2017​

When someone shares something of value

 with you and you benefit from it,

you have a moral obligation to

share it with others.
