REMINDER FOR UPDATING MAILING LISTS
Since many of us have extensive mailing lists, it is very
important that these lists be kept updated with changes in order
for the university to continue to receive preferential delivery.
It is very costly when items are returned. It is also very important
that you use UPDATED envelopes and mailing labels that reflect our
correct name and your correct return address.
Please discontinue using any labels that say COOPERATIVE EXTENSION
or that reflect the old zip code, 6230 for the Office of the Extension
Dean and Director. Effective November 21, 2003 our name was officially
changed from “Cooperative Extension” to “Washington
State University Extension.”
In partnership with county government, our county offices should
be referred to as “Washington State University XXX County
The new PO Box is 646248 and the correct zip code for the Office
of the Extension Dean and Director is 6248.
To order mailing supplies or stationery, please go to the Information
Department’s web site at: http://caheinfo.wsu.edu/.
