The National Postal Forum (NPF), a not-for-profit educational corporation, was established in 1968 by a group of major postal customers/mailers who were committed to an ongoing partnership with the United States Postal Service. The Forum's goal, then as now, has been to provide education to business mailers and communication/feedback between the USPS and its business customers for a more responsive and efficient mail communications system.
