Alliance challenges four USPS ‘myths’
The Coalition of Religious Communicators Associations began more than 40 years ago as the Coalition of Religious Press Associations, advocates for the public interest expressed through religious communications. Our name changed in the 21st Century to reflect the evolution of communications technology, skills, trends and forums.
The mission of the Coalition of Religious Communicators Associations is to bring diverse organizations and individuals together to influence policies, systems and environments related to internal and public communications channels, and to raise awareness among our members and the public about the contribution of religious communications to society.
We work to shape fair public policy on behalf of religious communicators. Efforts include national lobbying with the U.S. Postal Service, the Federal Communications Commission, and other federal, state and local policymaking entities.
The CRCA is an active member of the Mailers’ Technical Advisory Committee (MTAC), which is a venue for the United States Postal Service to share technical information with mailers, and to receive their advice and recommendations on matters concerning mail-related products and services, in order to enhance customer value and expand the use of these products and services for the mutual benefit of Mailing Industry stakeholders and the Postal Service.
The CRCA participates in MTAC to help shape public policy in postal and overall communications spheres and to inform our members and the general public about those policies and opportunities for cost savings. We represent the interests of a specialized yet widespread sector of communications and publishing, and we work through MTAC to ensure a place at the table for our members and their readers.
