 Additionally, during National PCC Day 2020, the Headquarters National PCC Program Office unveiled a new PCC logo.

The old PCC logo has been around since the 1990s and was in need of a refresh to bring it into modern times. Additionally, the logo didn’t represent what the PCC embodied; a network of mailing professionals. A team of PCC members was formed to brainstorm new logo ideas. The Postal Service leveraged its partnership with the McCann Ad Agency to assist in the new logo creation. Multiple meetings occurred, where the PCC team and McCann discussed what the PCC represented and what it should symbolize: a network comprised of trust, innovation, education, and connections. Plus, the new logo should speak to the PCCs as an institution deeply connected to both the Postal Service, its members, and sponsoring businesses.  It also represents the Postal Service and the PCCs coming together to provide better services for its members well into the future. 

For the GWAPCC, the pièce de résistance:
