Kevin Elkin, a member of LSC Postal Operations team was presented the Donald A. Mumma award.

The Donald A. Mumma Award honors excellence in industry-postal communications and collaboration to create a more competitive and efficient total mail supply chain

The Mumma Award is the highest award of distinction that Idealliance presents in the mail preparation and processing arena. The Mumma Award is a reminder that communication and collaboration between the US Postal Service and the industry are the key ingredients for our success.  The award is named for Donald A. Mumma, a US Postal Service mailing requirements manager at headquarters who exemplified a US Postal Service manager in the early 1980’s committed to customer focus and industry dialogue. He saw the advantage for both mailers and the US Postal Service to work together and was instrumental in launching the collaborative and worksharing approach between Idealliance and the US Postal Service. Throughout his many years of service with the US Postal Service, his legacy continued with those whom he mentored, fostering a continued spirit of industry collaboration and partnership. Donald Mumma died in 1983 and the Mumma Award was created in 1985.
