Alexandria, Va., September 25, 2015-Members of Epicomm, the Association for Leaders in Print, Mail, Fulfillment, and Marketing Services, will have convenient access to real-world tactical advice from top industry experts on a wide variety of management topics through the association's exclusive Member Webinar Series this fall.

            "Knowing that there are tremendous demands on our members' time, we've designed our webinar series to provide the latest information on key issues in a way that is convenient for our members to attend and available for them to review at a later date as well," says Epicomm President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Garner.

            "Each of our member webinars features a leading industry expert, runs about an hour in length, and includes time for interactive questions from attendees," he continues. "And all programs are recorded for members to revisit at any time in the Member Resources section of our Connected Community online site.


            "Although most of our webinars are open to Epicomm members only," he adds, "we are also presenting two webinars on legal requirements related to HIPAA, The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which will be available to non-members as well, given the importance of these regulations to nearly everyone in the industry."

            Following are among member-exclusive webinars in coming weeks:

Sept. 29, 2 p.m. (ET): Adding Direct Mail to an Automated Workflow. Featuring Steve Belmonte, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of AccuZIP, Inc., Atascadero, Calif., and Dwight Kelly, Founder and President of Apago, Inc., Ga.

In this members-only webinar, sponsored by AccuZIP, the technology behind automating workflows will be explained and demonstrated to show the real-world applications that are behind some of the platforms currently in use throughout the industry. It will highlight how integration between data and document composition, print processing, data quality functions, and postal processing can work in automated workflows; what to look for from automated workflow solutions (and what to stay away from); and the steps to take to create, build, and implement automated workflows.

            Monday, Oct. 5 & Monday, Oct. 26, 2015 1:00 p.m. (ET): Postal Points webinars.
 Featuring Leo Raymond, Editor of Epicomm's Postal Points newsletter, reviewing highlights of the most recent newsletter issue and answering questions about postal rates, regulations, and latest U.S. Postal Service activity.

There comes a point in the life of every growing company where the owner faces a difficult decision: "Do I hire a sales rep and take a risk or do I continue to be the sales rep and take a risk." This webinar will give you the information you need to make the decision that is right for you: Tips for hiring the best rep you can afford and tips for being the best rep you can be. Developed for Epicomm 25 members (25 or fewer employees), it is open to all members.
