WASHINGTON, DC — The U.S. Postal Service recognized Postal Customer Councils (PCCs) throughout the nation for their outstanding achievements and innovations in 2023. This year’s winners of the PCC Leadership Awards were announced during an event held at Postal Service Headquarters in Washington DC yesterday.
PCCs are a grassroots network that provide a local channel for USPS business mailers and the Postal Service to continue building upon their relationships so they can increase the use of mail and work on solving concerns and challenges together. These relationships provide a means to share best mailing and shipping practices, as well as give PCCs around the country opportunities to connect and learn from each other.
PCC Leadership Awards are presented each year by the Postal Service in recognition of exemplary work to strengthen and grow the PCC network. More than 220 nominations were submitted this year.
Top honors were presented to PCC groups that achieved overall excellence in their efforts to serve their communities. The PCCs offered innovative solutions for challenges for businesses of all sizes.
Richard Moreton (Detroit PCC) received the 2023 District Manager of the Year Award. Moreton was recognized for his consistent leadership, support and active involvement in all PCCs in his district.
