Update: Postmaster Essentials

Just an update on Postmaster Essentials. There has been a delay in the implementation of the new program. It is expected to be completed by the underwriters by the end of November. In December it will be reviewed and approved by Headquarters.  
In September, each area sent two Facilitator’s to Norman, Oklahoma for a Teach Back of the new content’s. Once everything is through Headquarters, in the beginning of 2020,  the Master Facilitators will recertify their facilitators in their areas. Hopefully, by the beginning of February, we will begin training the new program. I will keep you updated on the progress.

The Postmaster Essentials

Level 18-20 Training program is being updated and refreshed. One of our Ohio Postmasters is working with, 3 other Postmasters, in the country, and Kayci McKinley, Training and Development Specialist at Norman Oklahoma. This is several weeks in progress with several weeks to come.

Once completed, a few Postmasters will meet to review, and then teach back the new program. The plan is then for the Postmasters involved to roll it out to the remaining TTT certified trainers for Postmaster Essentials. 

Exciting times ahead for this program. 

Postmaster Representation


UPMA has provided alot of representation lately in the Great State of Ohio. A few reminders need brought up. 

Postmasters get paid 8 hours a day. They need to work 8 or their direct report needs to know where they are. It is not okay to share passwords. Everything is transparent. It is easy to see who is off the clock and yet their logins are entered in the system. Be in compliance always.
