Frequently Asked Questions: EdCal Delivery
When is EdCal mailed?
Issues of EdCal are printed on Thursday nights and delivered to the Post Office on Friday mornings. More than 16,000 issues are mailed weekly, with the exception of 15 to 16 non-publish dates throughout the year. View current non-publish dates.
Why does my colleague receive their copy of EdCal a few days before I do?
EdCal is mailed under a Second Class Periodical Permit, which guarantees delivery within 10 days of shipment. It can be delivered within as few as two or three days or as many as 10, depending on the amount of First Class mail in queue ahead of it for delivery. Your local Post Office branch determines how quickly you receive your copy of EdCal.
If you are not receiving your copies of EdCal or Leadership Magazine, it may be that you have moved job sites and have not updated your information with us. Contact Member Services to update your address.
How can I receive EdCal more quickly?
Your local Post Office branch is responsible for the timeliness of your EdCal delivery. The most effective way to receive your EdCal more promptly is to go to your local branch in person, explain that you are not receiving your issues in a timely manner and ask the branch office to give a note to your mail carrier requesting faster delivery. Bringing a copy of EdCal with you is recommended. From member feedback, this has been extremely effective in ensuring prompt delivery.
Could a delayed EdCal adversely affect my job search?
If you are concerned about receiving EdCal earlier rather than later because of a job search, we recommend that you visit our Web site and browse online job postings on our Career Center. Here you can search through not only many of the jobs advertised in EdCal's JobBoard, but dozens of others, all the most up-to-date open positions, at your convenience. Additionally, our Career Center offers such features as saved job searches, anonymous resume posting, career resources and job alerts, all free and easy to use.
In order to address possible delivery delays, we recommend to our JobBoard advertisers (employers) that they have an application deadline at least 14 days after the publication date, allowing job applicants time to receive EdCal and submit their resumes or applications.
