Please help NNA's campaign to have electronic subscriptions counted by the Postal Service

Feb 24, 2012

At long last—after nearly four years of effort by NNA's Max Heath and the Postal Committee, the U.S. Postal Service is considering a proposal to allow electronic subscriptions to count as paid circulation!

If the proposal succeeds, newspapers could begin immediately to ramp up e-subscriptions to count them in the October Statement of Ownership. As long-distance mail service deterioriates, members tell NNA these electronic subscriptions have become more important.

There are two ways to help.

1. You can write USPS directly with your comments. You can find the proposal here, along with instructions on where to write. Comments are due March 5.

2. Or you can join with other NNA members in providing your comments through this short survey. All signed comments will be provided to USPS. Anonymous submissions will not be included. To take the survey, click on this link.

Thank you for your support of NNA.
