Benefits of joining UPMA as a Postmaster, Manager, Supervisor or EAS Professional 

          • UPMA is the only management organization that can represent you at Postal Headquarters on specific Postmaster issues, including the planning and development of pay policies and schedules and fringe benefit programs.


What is UPMA?  How many times have you heard that question?

UPMA is the professional organization for leaders and those looking to become leaders in the Postal Service.  They offer many services to their members that are rarely found in our current atmosphere.


1. Training-UPMA helps with your Professional Development. They offer an online website with an educational section, in-person help through several career fairs.  Need help with your HERO profile, your 991?  We can help with that.


2. Communication-How many organizations give you so much information?  Our Ohio organization sends out a publication 5-6 times a year and the National organization sends out publications as well.  All contain information that is relevant to what is going on in our postal positions. 


3. Support-UPMA has an executive board that is there to assist you in your desire to excel in the Postal Service.  They offer on and off the job support, because you will gain friends and I refer to it as a family.  MEMBERS are always there willing to help. 


4. Representation-UPMA is there if you get into trouble or make a mistake.  We have top notch representatives that will stand by your side to help in any situation.  We have yearly training for anyone interested in helping their fellow Postmasters.  Let us know if you are willing to provide this assistance to our co-workers.  We can sign you up for the training. 


5. Travel-I have done so much traveling with UPMA!  Our conventions are all over Ohio, there are also National Conventions.   Every year our National Convention is held in a different location.  A Legislative conference is held in Washington D.C.  every year.  We have officer training and member representative training too.    

UPMA is currently offering a free year to EAS members.  Ohio UPMA is offering an incentive to anyone who signs up new members.  Please take an 1187 and visit your neighboring Postmaster.  Spread the word on UPMA and all they have to offer.  As always if I can help you in any way please don’t hesitate to call or email.
