Please update your address and contact information.  Every mailing issue of The Hook results in a number of magazines that get returned to us as “undeliverable” due to an incorrect or outdated address.  You are not only missing out on a world class publication, but also incurring cost to YOUR association as we are billed a return fee and the cost of re-mailing if the staff is able to contact you and update your address.  Help us save time and money by updating your information online. Update Now.
Be sure to provide your current address, phone number and email.  If you haven’t received your copy of The Hook, Spring 2017, it is likely that we have an incorrect address.  Give us a call and we’ll update the database and get your copy in the mail.

Why is my rank or title missing on my address label of The Hook magazine?

You may have noticed that your mailing label for The Hook magazine only depicts your first and last name, without rank or title. We mail the magazine at a bulk rate because mailing first class for all four issues each year would exceed your annual membership dues. When mailing bulk, the addressing is automated and mail pieces are sent to USPS already addressed, barcoded, CASS Certified and sorted, thus the Post Office charges a lower postage rate. However, due to the automation, we experienced a significant return rate based on the system not recognizing rank or title. We are working with our mailing distributor and USPS to resolve this issue. In the mean-time, we have found that using first and last name achieves the highest delivery rate for bulk mail. All other correspondence and shipping from The Tailhook Association is mailed first class and includes your rank and title on the address label.
