Dan Heins announces for UPMA National President 2018-2021

Greetings to each and every one of you!

I am announcing my candidacy for the National President of United Postmasters and Managers of America.

It is important to have a President that brings proven leadership, extensive experience and commitment to our membership. With my years of service to our organization, I believe that I am the right person to lead UPMA for the future.

The last two years, our great UPMA organization has seen many significant changes. I served on the National Executive Board during the merger process and I was greatly involved in creating the documents that formed UPMA. My tenure as National Secretary-Treasurer has also prepared me for the position of National President.

I am looking forward to meeting each of you at the National Convention in Louisville to answer your questions and to listen to your suggestions.

You may contact me at any time. My email address is and my cell phone number is 507-438-2676.

Thank you for your time and your consideration.

Daniel Heins
