United Postmasters and Managers of America
The National Auxiliary to the United Postmasters and Managers of America (UPMA) was established with the common goal to help the Postmasters, Manager and Supervisors. The Auxiliary supports, promotes, and protects their concerns, while providing their spouse, family and/or friends, with an organization of friendship and fellowship. Sharing concerns, building good public relations for the Postal Service, generating new ideas, and having fun together all make our work more interesting, worthwhile, and rewarding.
Membership in the Auxiliary consists of UPMA Members or family of UPMA, to include spouses, sons, daughters, father, mother or grandchild. Associate Members are any persons supportive of the UPMA, including in-law, nieces, nephews, employees of USPS and their family members, and special friends of UPMA. BRATS are auxiliary members between the ages of 6 and 21. BRATS stands for “Bringing Real Attributes to Society”.
The support of the UPMA Auxiliary and your State Chapter Auxiliary to UPMA is invaluable. We make the Auxiliary a family supported UPMA organization! Postmasters, Managers & Supervisors need all the support they can get on postal concerns. The Auxiliary members can rally community support, promote postal concerns, and keep in touch with Congressional Representatives on Postal issues.
Behind the scenes, the Auxiliary works to ensure that UPMA functions run smoothly and that a good time is had by all. Your Chapter may host the hospitality room at your annual State Convention, provides an evening of entertainment, maybe host a luncheon or picnic supper for the active UPMA and their families. Some of these activities might include putting on skits, planning tours, shopping, or just plain relaxing together. By becoming a member of your Auxiliary, you will learn about our organization, and how we support UPMA. Most importantly, you will make new friends and be sharing great fun and fellowship.
Membership dues are simply $10 /year for primary Member and $5 for additional family member(s). For further information contact a National Auxiliary Board Member at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be glad to answer your questions.
