National President's Message
Welcome to MSMA
2018 has been a year of “leveling up” to position MSMA for continued sustained growth now and well into the future. The industry is changing and the need to change with it has presented interesting challenges along with realizations that hashtags, tweets, advertising on Instagram and other social media related jargon and outlets online must be part of the educational endeavors of our member companies, clients and associates to better serve our B2B and B2C markets.
The speed with which e-commerce, logistics, distribution, parcels and shipping, mail, print and marketing are being disrupted to accommodate the “way business is conducted” domestically and internationally is trending upward. The future of requires MSMA, the premier education and networking association for industry leaders not limited to the areas cited above, requires we catch that wave and ride it to keep our companies and this association relevant with regard to the communication industry. Along those lines we have added to the professional certifications offered. Check out our web page re the new Office Services Professional Certification (OSPC)in conjunction with the Association of Office Services Professionals (AOSP). MSMA certifications are regarded as achievements of excellence in the industry.
We are much more than mail! plus all the other areas of interest cited above. We are a group of business leaders taking an active role in the development of current and future leaders ensuring they are capable of providing cost-saving timely business acumen to their employers to include the self-employed and 3rdparty vendors.
We encourage you to JOIN MSMA! The testimonials of our members and the active participation of or vendors training attendees at MAILCOM and other networking/educational events ranging from frequently offered webinars to quarterly meetings at local chapters on topics varying greatly in subject matter show how much MSMA has to offer personally and professionally.
We are embarking on an exciting new journey and want to thank all of the board members that have retired and moved on for their dedication and support. It has been greatly appreciated. For the current board members nationally and locally continue to do the great work that you do, it is not in vain. We are always looking for individuals (especially new younger voices) to assist in our becoming more effective leaders. The growth of this organization is imperative to the success of businesses as the skill sets that we encourage are rare and valuable when nourished properly. Come join us!
