Conventions FESA has attended in 2018

2018 UPMA Minnesota State Convention

FESA had a great time at the 2018 UPMA Minnesota state convention! Our representatives were Ron Karrels, Rich Henderson, Olivia Strother, and Will Strother. We enjoyed meeting all the Postmasters and participating in the activities such as the banquet dinner, silent auction, meetings, and Rolle Bolle. It truly was a great time had by all. 
 
At our table, we had the bag of money with $99 inside. Renae Ingersoll won the bag of money with a guess of $100! Way to go Renae!! During the convention, FESA also donated $55 towards the silent auction and $100 towards PAC. 
 
The UPMA Convention in Rochester, MN was a great experience.  The ability to see firsthand the meaningful impact the group has had on past accomplishments and the changes they are discussing were great!  Being part of the event will allow me to better serve the needs of all USPS employees relating to their benefits and retirement needs.  I really want to thank UPMA for allowing us to participate in the convention and look forward to seeing everyone next year! – Rich Henderson, Benefits Specialist
 
A few thoughts I would like to share regarding the Minnesota UPMA State Convention.  First of all, my wife Jeanne and I truly enjoyed spending time with Will, Olivia, and Rich, as well as the Minnesota Postmasters.  I especially enjoyed talking about FESA with the Postmasters and explaining all that we have to offer.  I felt FESA was well received by those in attendance.  As usual, the bag of money gives away generated lots of interest at the exhibit table. Also what really broke the ice, was when Will participated in the auction to raise funds for UPMA Pac.  I think that really put a different light on FESA and what FESA is all about. It was a good time interacting with the Postmasters and being apart of their convention. – Ron Karrels, Advisory Board Member, Retired Postmaster.

2018 UPMA Arkansas State Convention

For the 2018 UPMA Arkansas State Convention, we had three representatives: Esther Hanner, Nicole Standly, and Michael Strother. Here’s what they had to say about their time at the convention:
 
“The Postmasters convention was a good learning experience for me. I met some really nice folks and some were just a hop and a skip away from where I grew up.  There were retirees along with active Postmaster’s that attended and it was a good opportunity to make new acquaintances and reach out to them about what our company has to offer. I would recommend the conventions as a must for new employees so that they can see what it’s all about.” – Esther Hanner
 
“The Postmasters are like family.  They included us like we were their own.  Magic show and dancing was the highlight of our time besides meeting such awesome people!” – Nicole Standly
 
“It’s always great to meet with the Arkansas Postmasters at their annual state convention.  I was impressed with the overall focus and commitment to providing quality and timely customer service.  The Postmasters are hard working, dedicated to their jobs, and looking for ways to improve the workplace, employee relations, and customer relations. Unfortunately, they have limited training, time, and resources to help their employees understand their benefits and how to maximize them. We can help solve this problem by working with each employee.  Over the next few weeks, we will be meeting with many of the Postmasters to put steps in action.” – Michael Strother
 
We gave away the bag of money to Todd Britt, Postmaster from Berryville, Arkansas with the exact guess $100. There was $100 in the bag of money. Congratulations Todd! 
 
FESA also participated in the silent auction for $100 and gave $100 to UPMA Arkansas for them to use as needed.

2016 NAPUS National Convention
New Orleans, Louisiana

NAPUS 2016 Convention in New Orleans, LA was a great time. Team FESA had a booth for the second year. We also sponsored two holes at the NAPUS 2016 golf tournament at TPC Louisiana for the Longest Drive and Closest to the Hole. It was a lot of fun playing and getting to know the active and retired Postmasters. A special thank you to Carroll Devillier for setting everything up! Hopefully, there will be another tournament at the 2017 UPMA (“United Postmasters and Managers of America.”) convention. Read More
