INDUSTRY NEWS

Intelligent Mail Barcode Update

This update was recently posted by the DMM Advisory:

CERTIFICATION

What Business Are We In?

Bill Hill, CFC, CFSP, Chair FSCB

One of the frustrations of BFMA over the years is obtaining a business mailing list of Forms people. What titles do we use, what office title? Also, what organization are we within? Office Services? Information Services? Operations, among others? Not only is it difficult for BFMA or the public to find the Forms offices, but also even people within an organization can have trouble finding a forms professional or not even know one exists.
