Conway Appointed Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers Executive Director

The Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers appointed senior U.S. Postal Service executive Anthony W. Conway as its executive director.

Mr. Conway is a 34-year veteran of the USPS and most recently served as manager of government relations.

"I think that the most important thing facing nonprofit mailers right now is the rapidly changing postal environment," Mr. Conway said. "I believe that there is going to be more transformation in the postal service within the next five to 10 years than there was with the initial reform in 1970."

The Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers is a national coalition of nonprofit organizations with a common interest in nonprofit postal policy. The 26-year-old entity represents nonprofit mailers before the Postal Rate Commission, USPS and Congress.

Mr. Conway was actively involved in drafting the 2000 legislation that allows the preferred-rate discounts for nonprofit mailers. As executive director of the Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers, he will have to face the upcoming rate increases from the postal service.

"I think all rate increases are unwelcome, whether you are a nonprofit or for-profit organization," Mr. Conway said. "But at the same time the postal service is a business and they have a need to generate more revenue."

Eleanor Kirkconnell had been the temporary executive director since January and will continue at the organization in a yet-to-be determined position.

Mr. Conway cites his postal background as the most important thing he brings to the nonprofit mailers' organization.

"I have a lot of experience and knowledge working the postal arena and that will be helpful at the alliance," he said. "I have an understanding of how Washington works and that will only add to my effectiveness."
