To all Current and Prospective Members:
On behalf of the Chicago Chapter of Mail Systems Management Association (MSMA) and its Executive Board members, I extend you a warm greeting and encourage you to take advantage of what the overall organization offers mailing professionals. It is our intent to provide a forum for: sharing information, continued education, professional achievement and recognition, networking and even personal growth.
Certainly, the 2021 year brings new challenges. This year’s calendar of events features our local luncheons and seminars addressing the above issues. Also, we highly recommend MAILCOM as a national show, availing you to a three-day education which will serve you for a lifetime. It is our hope that you attain a wealth of information at these programs which you can take back and apply to your own operations.
Our MSMA Chicago group is very fortunate to have so many mailing pros willing to help out other mailers any way they can. Therefore, we hope you also take advantage of your membership to network with your fellow professionals.
If you have any questions, please contact me or any Board Member, as we are very proud of our organization and would be eager to chat with you. The Board and I look forward to seeing you at the next function.
We are also looking for new Chicago Chapter Board Members, especially someone that can manage the website. You can speak to any of our current Board members for information. Feel free to contact me anytime.
Denise L. Streit
MSMA/Chicago Chapter President
Office Services Manager/IMRF

MSMA CHICAGO CHAPTER AWARDS
MAIL CENTER OF THE YEAR AWARD
The Mail Center of the Year Award recognizes an entire member mail center for their outstanding contributions to the profitability of their company and our industry. The areas that will be evaluated and considered will be those of employee engagement, new technology, improving current operating procedures and processes and cost reductions. All in-house facilities offering mailing services are eligible for nomination. The emphasis of this award is focused on the entire mail center staff’s contribution as opposed to focusing on individual effort.
HELP YOUR LOCAL CHAPTER:
Please consider sponsoring one of our events during the year. Your generous donation can be used towards expenses for facilities, meals, refreshments, and speakers. By being a sponsor, your logo, business info, and website link will be featured on our homepage.
