Designed to Stay Connected
By Rebecca Turner
Pacific Area Vice President
The United States Postal Service was designed to help people and communities stay connected and receive current news as fast as possible. That purpose continues to drive the Postal Service today and spills over into NAPS’ Auxiliary branches. The National Auxiliary was organized Sept. 20, 1933, to assist NAPS in its legislative objectives and promote a greater interest in the association and the Auxiliary’s work. We also work to stay connected.
We stay connected with one another to see what is working, what did not work, what new methods each of us are using and what new ideas have spun from our meetings and conversations. We use our meetings to not only take care of postal business, but also to check in with each other, get updated on each others’ families and keep up with graduations and weddings, as well as the not-so-great news.
We support one another with well wishes, prayers, cards and check-ins. We not only share legislative news, but recipes, health tips, shopping tips, convention news and much more. As with the intent of creating the Postal Service, the Auxiliary is designed to stay connected. Staying connected has supported postal endeavors by helping raise money for projects, letter-writing, meeting setups and supporting our branches in each of their endeavors—all while increasing meaning, purpose and relationships in our own lives.
We hope every officer in every local NAPS branch will seek a commitment from a family member or friend to represent you in the Auxiliary. Having a representative for each officer is the beginning of an auxiliary for your branch. Like the Postal Service, every auxiliary must begin somewhere and grow with time.
Begin now by asking a family member or friend for a commit-ment to stand with you. Together, we are stronger! For support in starting an auxiliary, feel free to email me and I’ll point you in the right direction.
