D.C. Insiders to Forecast Crucial Change in USPS at National Catalog Forum;
Discount Registration Expires Next Week


Your Company’s Future is at Stake

The Postal Regulatory Commission is in the midst of a mandated review of the 10-year-old CPI price-capped postal rate-making system. For the 10th Annual National Catalog Forum coming up in Washington, May 2-4, the ACMA chose the three ulitmate experts to discuss and debate where they see this review heading.

 

    

Meet the Experts
Above (L to R), former Postal Regulatory Commission Chairman Dan Blair; former Special Assistant to the President & Commissioned Officer, White House Office of Legislative Affairs Denise Wilson; and SLS Consulting President Larry Buc all have extensive postal backgrounds, including direct or indirect involvement in the creation of the Postal Accountability & Enhancement & Act (PAEA) of 2007, which created the modern postal rate-setting system. They will share their extensive insights on where they see the crucial 10-year review headed.
