Communications Committee



The primary goal of the Communications Committee is to promote and nurture communication among USPS members by providing information, technical resources, and advice to all USPS editors and webmasters who request it. We believe newsletters and websites are excellent marketing tools for increasing both public interest and membership.

This website provides editors and webmasters with basic tools useful in producing quality publications and websites. There is information about Social Media and why it is important. There are resources like an Editors Guide, image sources, and forms used to evaluate publications and websites for the Distinctive Communicator Award (DCA). To be eligible for this annual award, editors and webmasters should know their assigned Adviser and be familiar with evaluation criteria. The DCA evaluation year is 1 January to 31 December for publications and 1 January to 30 November for websites.
