Postal Solutions in a Time of Uncertainty

Marketers, retailers, publishers and other mailers are up against unprecedented change across the postal industry. The total cost and response for each marketing message depends on several factors. The USPS has to respond to outside pressures while being self-sustaining and autonomous in an increasingly digital age. As change accelerates, mailers must re-evaluate programs on a regular basis. But USPS customers have options to get the most out of the service. Join your peers among commercial mailers, industry insiders, USPS officials, Quad leadership and other stakeholders to discuss the state of postal affairs — and ideas for a better, more profitable future.

Some key topics the event will address include:

  • Gain insight into the state of privacy legislation from beltway experts
  • Hear from the Postal Regulatory Commission on strategies, initiatives, and challenges
  • How are USPS initiatives aligning with and supporting marketers
  • What does the future of mail look like and how is technology playing a key role

Featured Speakers:

  • Joel Quadracci, Quad Chairman, President and CEO
  • Robert Taub, Chairman, PRC
  • Jakki Krage Stako, CMO, USPS
  • Sharon Owens, VP Pricing, USPS
  • Megan J. Brennan, Postmaster General, USPS
