Legislative Leadership


Held on March 12 - 16, 2016
Washington, DC

A Message from National Retiree President Clara

      Bittersweet Moment:

I failed to notice the exact hour, but it was about 3:20 pm on Monday, March 14, 2016, when the National NAPUS President Tony Leonardi dropped the gavel that adjourned forever the NAPUS Legislative/Leadership Conferences as we have known them. Just one year shy of half a century, NAPUS Postmasters have flocked to our nation's capital annually to champion the betterment of Postmasters and the Post Office Department/United States Postal Service. According to NAPUS: A Century of Service 1898-1998, page 133:"The first NAPUS Chapter Officers' Conference was April 18-19, 1967, at the International Inn, Washington, DC." It was also 1967 when President Lyndon Johnson informed Congress he would recommend a substantial pay raise for federal employees (which included postmasters), and he also asked Congress to raise postal rates by $700 million a year. Both proposals, which were of great interest to Postmasters, would become subjects of bitter controversy in Congress. Through the last 49 years, many things have changed, some things remain the same.
