Postal Customer Council® (PCC)

The PCC® Program’s mission is to foster a close working relationship between the U.S. Postal Service and commercial mailers. Our goals are to share information about new and existing Postal Service business products, programs, services, and procedures. Through focused educational programs, the PCC® strives to help industry members and their organizations grow and develop professionally.

Membership

PCC® membership consists of both Postal Service employees and representatives of the mailing industry. Membership is open to all business mailers who use the services of the Postal Service within the sponsoring Postal Service manager's geographic area.

The terms “business mailers” and “businesses” as used here include commercial mailers, non-profit organizations, service bureaus, and other types of business enterprises that use the mail, including those that may be individuals or sole proprietorships, but the terms are not meant to include residential mailers. A business mailer may be a member of more than one PCC®, but he/she cannot be an officer or Executive Board member of multiple PCCs®. Postal Service employees will join the PCC® membership and participate as determined by the Postal Service and in accordance with the needs of the individual PCC®.

Policy Administration

Because the Postal Consumer Council® is a Postal Service®-sponsored organization, it maintains a set of policies and practices to help local PCCs® keep things in order. We’ve assembled basic guidelines here, along with some locally submitted best practices.

These policies are based on the PCC® mission, which is to…

  • Promote, support, and foster close working relationships between the U.S. Postal Service and business mailers.
  • Facilitate information sharing and idea exchange with business mailers about Postal Service products, programs, services, and procedures.
  • Help PCC® industry members and their organizations grow and develop professionally through focused educational programs.

All PCC® activities and members’ interests in participating in them should be consistent with this mission.
