POSTMASTER GENERAL CITES GREETING CARD ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT FOR PARTNERSHIP FOR PROGRESS AWARD

 MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Peter Van Witt, president, the Greeting Card Association (GCA), Washington, received the Postal Service's prestigious Partnership for Progress Award recognizing his outstanding accomplishments in the mailing industry.
 Postmaster General Marvin Runyon made the presentation praising Van Witt for serving "as an example for postal customers and postal managers throughout America."
 Under Van Witt's leadership the GCA has continued to work with the Postal Service to make sure envelope size and shape can be easily processed through postal automation. It has aggressively worked to reduce the number of dark colored envelopes on retail shelves, because postal automation equipment cannot "read" addresses against a dark background. In these ways, the GCA has actively supported the Postal Service's efforts to process mail efficiently through automation.
 The award was presented at the National Postal Forum, a meeting of more than 3,000 mailing industry representatives.
