Teresa Shaak



Many community newspapers rely on the USPS to deliver their publicationsTherefore, it is paramount that PNA’s members pay reasonable mailing rates, receive efficient service and are treated fairly. In addition, newspaper readers have a reasonable expectation of receiving the printed product on time.  

Like many organizations, the USPS had its share of stumbles in the past year. During this session, Dave Webster, Senior Director of Processing Operations for the USPS Chesapeake Division, will discuss the USPS changes to serve community newspapers’ needs better.  Dave will also offer advice about how community newspapers can work more efficiently with the USPS and answer your important questions. 

What is the PNA Community Newspaper Forum?

There are unique opportunities and challenges involved in running a community newspaper. During this inaugural event, industry experts and Forum participants will share thoughts and ideas, exchange best practice tips to maintain and grow business and set a course of action to ensure continued success.
