William H. Young was re-elected president of the 300,000-member National Association of Letter Carriers at the union's 65th biennial convention at the Las Vegas Convention Center this week.

Mr. Young, who is concluding his first term as NALC president, was elected by acclamation to a new four-year term. He will lead a 117-year-old union that represents all city delivery letter carriers in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands.

He serves as a member of the executive committee of the AFL-CIO. In addition, he is a national vice president of the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the union's official charity, and is a member of the Advisory Board of the Walter P. Reuther Library of Labor and Urban Affairs at Wayne State University in Detroit.

Mr. Young began his postal career in 1965 in San Luis Obispo, CA, and soon became involved in his local NALC branch. In 1990, he was elected as a national resident officer in Washington, DC, and served four years as executive vice president before being elected as president in 2002.
